Cloud Workload Protection & Vulnerability Management
CWP protects workloads, across multicloud environments, from breaches and the exposure of sensitive data. Discover how Tenable Cloud Security’s agentless CWP, part of an identity-first cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP), provides full visibility into cloud workloads and accurately identifies and prioritizes security gaps so your teams can tackle the greatest risks first.
Who Needs Cloud Workload Protection
Everyone. Protecting your cloud workloads is essential for compliance and security best practice. Tenable CWP is a scalable, low-friction solution for securing cloud workloads and mitigating risk from vulnerabilities and violations that commonly occur during rapid development cycles. Give your teams the freedom to adopt the architectures best for their needs while using Tenable Cloud Security to secure those diverse workloads. Gain:
- Comprehensive visibility into your multi-cloud workloads from a single pane
- Prioritization of risk to sensitive data including by correlating vulnerabilities across OS packages, applications and libraries
- Flexibility through speedy, agentless risk assessment that doesn’t sacrifice performance or require agent deployment for each new service
- Governance and compliance through continuous scanning including for violations, and implementing of security controls that meet changing requirements
Comprehensive Multicloud Workload Protection
Tenable Cloud Security leverages an agentless approach to scan and detect critical workload risks. The platform offers unified protection across multi-cloud environments, providing teams with a centralized, single point of visibility and control. By combining insights on vulnerabilities, exposed secrets / sensitive data, malware and misconfigurations across virtual machines, containers and serverless functions, security and DevSecOps teams can prioritize remediation by effectively discovering resources that are exposed to threats or have the largest blast radius.
Finding the Signal in the Noise
With security risks, context matters. Tenable CWP offers a complete view into your OS security posture (e.g., EOL, unpatched or vulnerable to threats), applications and libraries. Risk-based prioritization that correlates workload risk factors with findings such as misconfigurations, network exposure and overly permissive identities, allows teams to focus remediation efforts on the vulnerabilities that matter most.
Secure Containers Early in the Software Lifecycle
Tenable Cloud Security scans containerized services (e.g., K8s, ECS) running on workloads and combines build and runtime insights to surface high-fidelity findings linked to container images. By integrating container security into existing CI/CD workflows, organizations can achieve shift left security. To facilitate remediation, DevSecOps teams can track the container back to the original image that created it by correlating workload risk factors across build and runtime.
Ensure Compliance with Industry Benchmarks
Detect and mitigate cloud threats that could expose sensitive data as well as the legal repercussions associated with the lack of security compliance. Tenable Cloud Security helps ensure compliance with standards mandating a vulnerability management process, such as AWS Well Architected, CSA, NIST, ISO 27001 and SOC II.
Full Cloud-Native Security Without Agents
Tenable uses an agentless, identity-first approach as part of its comprehensive Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) to unify and automate asset discovery, risk analysis, runtime threat detection and compliance in AWS, Azure and GCP. Find out how Tenable Cloud Security can help you reveal, prioritize and remediate security gaps with insight and precision, accelerating action, least privilege and security collaboration throughout the organization.
