Tenable agrees to acquire Cymptom

Tenable has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Cymptom, a cyberattack path management vendor. Tenable said it plans to combine its coverage of vulnerabilities and misconfigurations with Cymptom’s unique attack path analysis and prioritisation capabilities to enable security teams to preemptively focus response ahead of and during attacks.

Cymptom was founded in 2019 and is led by Israeli Defense Force veterans and white hat hackers. The terms of the deal were not disclosed and the acquisition is expected to close in the first quarter of 2022.

Nico Popp, chief product officer, Tenable, explained, “Risk prioritisation has become a cornerstone of modern cybersecurity. By correlating software vulnerabilities and misconfigurations with network and access data, Cymptom can immediately identify exploitable attack and breach pathways.

“Following closing of the deal, these compelling analytics will be integrated into tenable’s exposure platform and augment the prioritisation, benchmarking, trending and other capabilities.”

After closing, Cymptom’s agentless platform will be integrated into Tenable’s threat and vulnerability data. Attack path analysis will bring additional context and prioritisation capabilities to Tenable’s platform, with a unified view of assets and vulnerabilities.

Itamar Mizrahi, CEO, Cymptom, added, “Cymptom and Tenable share a common vision that modern vulnerability management combined with a deep and sophisticated understanding of attackers’ perspectives is a powerful weapon in stopping breaches and reducing risk to the enterprise.

“We are excited to accelerate our mission and eager to work with Tenable’s global team.”
