“We consider Kenna Security’s inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our innovative, risk-based approach to proactively address enterprise security,” said Karim Toubba, CEO of Kenna Security. “Being a cyber security professional in today’s environment is challenging – it’s nearly impossible to remediate every vulnerability and ensure 100 percent coverage of an enterprise’s assets. Our predictive approach combines cutting-edge prioritization models with machine learning to deliver huge improvements in effectiveness and efficiency over common vulnerability remediation strategies.”

The report states, “The products highlighted in this research help security and risk managers prioritize the vulnerabilities in their infrastructure and the security events disclosed via monitoring activities, enabling more effective security investigation and response operations…This research does not constitute an exhaustive list of vendors in any given technology area, but rather is designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services.”1

The Kenna Security Platform enables enterprises to identify which of the multitude of vulnerabilities poses the highest risk and prioritizes the actions that will have the greatest impact to increase overall security posture.
