Vulnerability management firm Tenable unveils $25m early-stage fund


Tenable, a vulnerability management software provider, has launched a $25m venture fund to support startups in the attack surface and exposure management space.  

Tenable stated that the fund will work with startups in key cybersecurity markets such as Israel and the US to help with the development and go-to-market strategies for exposure management solutions.

Tenable Ventures also intends to work with startups to improve product design, create consistent and sharable data models and enterprise readiness.

The firm said, “We will invest in companies tackling significant problems that require new and innovative approaches, data sets and platforms.”

The company said it will look for companies that focus on a preventive approach to security using emerging technologies in cloud security, identity management, external attack surface management, operational technology and vulnerability management.

Tenable added that suchtechnologies would expand the exposure management ecosystem and could be considered for integration into the Tenable One Exposure Management platform.

Last year, Tenable revealed it had plans to acquire attack surface management firm Bit Discovery in a $45m deal.

The firm plans to leverage Bit Discovery’s products across its entire portfolio, from enterprise vulnerability management to Nessus to cloud to operational technology to identity.

The acquisition came less than a year after Bit Discovery raised $4m in Series B funding.
