Datadog (Nasdaq:DDOG), the monitoring and analytics platform for developers, IT operations teams, and business users in the cloud age, today announced an integration with Nessus® from Tenable®, Inc. The integration ensures advanced vulnerability assessment capabilities from Nessus are available as part of a secure, end-to-end DevOps process. This enables DevOps teams that rely on Datadog for their critical cloud monitoring to have constant visibility into the health and status of their Nessus deployments.
The Datadog integration with Nessus can detect when and where an assessment begins and ends, which is then correlated with metrics and logs on Datadog’s cloud monitoring platform. By bringing this data together, Datadog and Tenable create a more complete picture of the security posture and infrastructure performance of a user’s cloud environment. This integration will serve the needs of cross-functional teams that operate in the cloud and monitor Nessus by ensuring full visibility into the status of their Nessus deployments.
“Tenable is at the heart of vulnerability management for many of our customers, and real-time visibility into vulnerability assessments is increasingly relevant to Dev and Ops teams as well,” said Marc Tremsal, Director of Product Management, Datadog. “Our integration will help break down the silos between these functions by ensuring that teams receive the same visibility into security as they do other key observability data.”
“Nessus is the number one vulnerability assessment solution in the world, with unsurpassed accuracy and coverage trusted by more than 30,000 organizations. Now we’re working with Datadog to give DevOps teams constant visibility into their Nessus assessments, bringing enhanced insight into cyber risk throughout the software development lifecycle,” said Renaud Deraison, co-founder and chief technology officer, Tenable. “Today’s announcement is simply the first, exciting step in what we believe Tenable and Datadog can do together to help DevOps teams and the cybersecurity community.”
