SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kenna Security, a leader in predictive cyber risk, announced today that it has achieved significant growth and momentum in fiscal year 2017, including robust subscriptions sales of the Kenna Security Platform in the fourth quarter of 2017. As organizations shift to a risk-based approach to vulnerability management, many of the world's most trusted brands have turned to Kenna Security, including 16 of the Fortune 100, to manage cyber risk at scale, preparing them to confront the volume and diversity of contemporary cyber threats.
"Our success and growth is driven by the current climate of cyber risk: organizations are at risk from the tens of millions of vulnerabilities lurking on tens of thousands of assets in their enterprise and growing daily. No longer can companies expect to solve the problem with more staff and spreadsheets; they need to determine where the greatest dangers lie through risk or threat-based risk prioritization," said Kenna Security CEO Karim Toubba. "Kenna's premise for managing cyber risk resonates with CISOs who recognize the importance of an organizational approach focused on the right priorities with effective processes in place to ensure execution. CISOs have to view and report everything through the lens of risk."
