Study Group Deploys Tenable Network Security to Protect Academic Community
SYDNEY --(Business Wire)--
Network Security, Inc., the leader in continuous network monitoring,
today announced�that Study Group has deployed the Tenable SecurityCenter
Continuous View (CV)™ solution which provides organizations with a
platform to continuously monitor for critical vulnerabilities and
The proactive continuous monitoring security solution from Tenable
Network Security replaces Study Group's patch management system, which
was unable to continuously monitor its network for new devices and
vulnerabilities. At the same time, Study Group decided to take proactive
steps to protect its 50,000 international students, teachers and staff
and ensure ongoing business continuity following a surge in hacking
Craig Coleiro, Global IT Operations Director, Study Group, explained,
"We reviewed several solutions and concluded that what was needed was a
technology which could identify and show the risks, mitigations,
incidents and logs while also monitoring the level of security and
enabling us to take necessary steps to improve it continuously."
At the same time, Study Group wanted a solution that wouldgive it the
ability to monitor its network 24x7 for new vulnerabilities, devices and
incidents. The solution also needed to be able to send alerts and
reports identifying business risk.
"Another highly valued attribute of any solution was the product's
capacity to conduct credentialed scanning to identify vulnerabilities in
applications installed on workstations and servers instead of just
finding vulnerabilities from the outside on ports and services running
on a device. This, in turn, would help the organization identify which
systems posed a larger risk when compared to others," says Coleiro.
Finally, Study Group sought a solution that would provide the
organization with the ability to monitor and track compliance to
ascertain best practice configurations within its network.
"We looked at several solutions, but following a proof-of-concept with
Tenable SecurityCenter Continuous View, we believed that this solution
was the best suited to achieve our organizational requirements around
information security. Specifically, we required a product that could
identify vulnerabilities, incidents and logs in one console enabling us
to conduct quick analysis and quick response. Tenable's SecurityCenter
CV appeared to be a great choice."
"Continuous monitoring for vulnerabilities and threats across all
network assets is essential to protect today's information systems,"
said Attley Ng, vice president of Asia-Pacific, Tenable Network
Security. "Having a platform to bring all the data together to achieve
this makes it possible for organizations to identify vulnerabilities,
reduce risk and ensure compliance continuously."
Tasked with the project management and successful deployment of
Tenable's SecurityCenter CV was Sydney-based Content Security, a trusted
security advisor to Study Group for several years.
