Risk I/O Rebrands to Kenna, Accelerates Business Momentum in 2015
Business Grows More Than 300 Percent; New Customers Join Seeking Kenna’s Powerful Approach to Risk and Vulnerability Intelligence
SAN FRANCISCO – August 4, 2015 – Kenna, a Risk and Vulnerability Intelligence platform that enables InfoSec teams to measure their overall risk as well as prioritize the vulnerabilities that pose the greatest threat, today announced a name change from Risk I/O. It also announced that its business grew more than 300% compared to this time last year as a surge of medium-sized and enterprise companies selected Kenna to support their vulnerability management and remediation efforts.
Kenna offers the only solution for automating the correlation of vulnerability scan data (such as Qualys, Nessus, and Rapid7) with real-time threat intelligence and zero-day data, enabling Information Security teams to understand precisely what to prioritize and remediate. Kenna’s customers free themselves from the grueling need to parse through that mountain of information manually, while ensuring that they’re remediating the weaknesses that truly matter. At the same time, directors and executives gain tremendous visibility into their overall risk landscape.
“Vulnerability data, in and of itself, is not the complete story. With the threat intelligence that we gain from the Kenna platform, we’re able to contextualize our vulnerability data and prioritize our remediation efforts,” said Mark Arnold, Director of Information Security at PTC. “The Kenna platform also enables us to see, measure, and report on our overall exposure risk, which is an important mandate for my team.”
Other key Kenna accomplishments in 2015 include:
- Contributing to the 2015 Verizon Data Breach Information Report – in fact, literally writing the chapter on “Vulnerabilities” for one of the most read and respected documents in the Information Security space.
- Releasing a new Reporting feature that allows customers to see their trending risk line at a glance.
- Strengthening the executive team with key hires: Dave Bortz as VP of Engineering and Greg Howard as VP of Marketing.
“Vulnerability Management is needlessly difficult for teams who can’t keep up with the incessant hammering of advanced persistent threats and non-targeted attacks,” said Karim Toubba, Kenna’s CEO. “Our customers realize that they need to be leveraging the same kinds of automated approaches to protecting themselves that the bad guys are using to initiate attacks. That’s why they flock to Kenna, because we provide an automated way to measure risk, identify vulnerabilities, and remediate weaknesses. For our customers, it’s like adding additional headcount without the budget.”
Kenna is a software-as-a-service Risk and Vulnerability Intelligence platform that accurately measures risk and prioritizes remediation efforts before an attacker can exploit an organization’s weaknesses. Kenna accomplishes this by automating the correlation of customer vulnerability data, threat data, and 0-day data, analyzing security vulnerabilities against active Internet breaches.
