Tenable, a global leader in vulnerability management, has awarded AEC the Platinum Partner status. Thanks to this exclusive partnership, customers of the foremost Czech cybersecurity provider can benefit from the industry-leading tools and expert services on this US platform, tools that cover the entire vulnerability management process.
The highest possible level of cooperation. That is what the platinum partnership between AEC and Tenable entails. So just who are Tenable? A US-based provider of vulnerability management security solutions. Through its platform the company’s products are used by tens of thousands of organizations worldwide, primarily because of their sophisticated technologies and original solutions to vulnerability management.
“We chose Tenable because this company has been focused purely on vulnerability management right from the very start, therefore the products it offers are of exceptional quality,” explains Maroš Barabas, Head of Product Management at AEC. He goes on to say that it is this successful cooperation with Tenable that has made vulnerability management a strategic product for AEC.
Vulnerability management is a process that involves detecting, analysing and evaluating system vulnerabilities, including their removal. The basic detection tool is equipment used to scan for vulnerabilities. The most critical ones should then be analysed by an expert who can thus understand how an attacker can exploit them and who also has intimate knowledge of the network and the systems on it. This approach is the most effective both in terms of prioritising vulnerabilities and the subsequent patching.
AEC currently has an experienced team of experts who can fully comprehend the entire vulnerability management process as used in companies and institutions. “AEC focuses on delivering security as a service provided in close partnership with customers and the area of vulnerability management is the best example of this,” notes Maroš Barabas, specifying that it is not only about the technical solution itself, but also about ensuring that the entire vulnerability management process is always in full agreement with the customer’s needs and capabilities.
The AEC team offers its clients a wide range of technologies and services. The cornerstone is choosing and implementing a suitable tool, setting up the vulnerability management processes and its technological integration. Whilst doing so, it also offers hardening, compliance checks and a whole host of other solutions, such as manual identification and verifying the vulnerabilities in systems and applications.
The collaboration between AEC and Tenable has been ongoing since 2010. At the time, the Czech cyber security provider was the first in the Czech Republic and Slovakia to be partnered with the US platform. Eight years later, Tenable gave this partnership Gold status, and in 2021 it was upgraded to the highest possible level – Platinum.
