SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., December 19, 2019  Kenna Security, the enterprise leader in risk-based vulnerability management, today announced it has received a 451 Firestarter award from leading technology research and advisory firm 451 Research, recognizing the company’s innovative contribution within the technology industry.

“Our approach to risk-based vulnerability management programs fundamentally changes how organizations address security risk,” said Karim Toubba, CEO of Kenna Security. “That’s why more and more organizations are adopting the Kenna model. This 451 Firestarter award shows continued momentum, and we’re extremely proud to be recognized by analysts that are true experts in the field.”

Enterprise networks contain millions of vulnerabilities, far more than their security teams can manage. But security teams don’t know which vulnerabilities to address first. In fact, the typical enterprise only has the capacity to remediate one out of every ten vulnerabilities on its systems. The Kenna Security Platform uses advanced algorithms and global threat data to prioritize the riskiest vulnerabilities, and accurately predict the ones most likely to be exploited by hackers. The platform puts risks in context, enabling organizations to improve security while saving time and resources.

451 Research’s Firestarter program recognizes exceptional innovation within the information technology industry. Introduced in 2018, and awarded quarterly, the program is exclusively analyst-led, allowing its team of technology and market experts to highlight organizations they believe are significantly contributing to the overall pace and extent of innovation in the technology market.

“451 Research built its reputation on helping clients understand the innovations driving a constantly changing technology industry,” said Scott Crawford, Research Vice President at 451 Research. “The 451 Firestarter award is designed to recognize organizations like Kenna Security, which is among those whose innovation pushes the industry forward.”
