In today’s cybersecurity landscape, staying ahead of vulnerabilities is crucial. Tenable and Bacon Unlimited® offer a comprehensive solution for CVE management and remediation. Here’s why Tenable excels in CVE detection and alerting, and why Bacon Unlimited is the best for quick and effective remediation.

Tenable: The Leader in CVE Detection and Alerting

Comprehensive Coverage

Tenable has maintained its lead in overall unique CVE coverage for more than 20 years. With 2.7 percent to 5.7 percent more coverage than its competitors, Tenable ensures that your systems are protected across Windows, macOS, and Linux platforms. The platform covers 84 percent of CIS Benchmarks, significantly higher than other products.

Fast Response Times

Tenable provides coverage for CISA Critical Known Exploitable Vulnerabilities (KEVs) 15.6 days faster than Rapid7 and 2.9 days faster than its closest competitors. This rapid response time is critical in mitigating risks before they can be exploited.

Extensive CVE Database

Tenable maintains a comprehensive list of CVEs and their affected products, along with related plugins for detecting each vulnerability. This extensive database includes 5,506 additional unique CVEs for the top 24 leading technology vendors compared to its closest VM competitor.

Enhanced Detection Capabilities

Tenable’s intuitive dashboard visualizations and easy-to-understand risk scores help security teams prioritize which risks to address first. The KEV catalog from CISA lists known vulnerabilities that have been exploited, allowing for more targeted and effective remediation efforts.

Cutting-Edge Innovation

In August 2023, Tenable introduced generative AI capabilities in Tenable One with ExposureAI, which helps summarize the significance of discovered vulnerabilities and recommends fixes. The October 2023 acquisition of Ermetic further enhances Tenable’s platform by incorporating CIEM and CNAPP functionalities for both on-premises and cloud environments.
