Tenable Cloud Security was born out of the acquisition of Ermetic, an innovative cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) company, and a leading provider of cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM).

The combination of Tenable and Ermetic offerings will add capabilities to deliver market-leading contextual risk visibility, prioritization, and remediation across infrastructure and identities, both on-premises and in the cloud.
