NIST Cybersecurity Framework
Assess Coverage for 90% of CSF Technical Controls
Developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is comprised of best practice guidelines to help organizations identify, implement and enhance their cybersecurity practices and use a common language to communicate issues to stakeholders.Learn More About NIST ▶
While adopting the NIST Cybersecurity Framework is voluntary, it is quickly gaining acceptance with government agencies and commercial organizations. But many users face the challenge of how to operationalize CSF, assess conformance and drive improvement.
With Tenable Security Center (formerly Tenable.sc), you can measure, visualize and effectively communicate adherence to the CSF. It automates the assessment of more than 90 percent of CSF technical controls, providing IT security practitioners, auditors, CISOs and executive management near real-time assurance of technical control status across the Framework’s Identify, Protect, Detect and Respond functions.
In addition, by delivering continuous visibility across your entire environment, including cloud, virtualized and mobile environments, Tenable Security Center helps you improve and maintain your cybersecurity program – and transform your security.
