Tenable.io Integration mApp Solution

Use the Tenable.io Integration mApp® Solution for a bi-directional integration between Tenable and CSM.

Platform version requirements: CSM 10.2.x

Content version requirements: Tested on CSM 10.2.0

Available languages: English


Use the Tenable.io Integration mApp Solution to import vulnerabilities discovered in Tenable into CSM, where you can create Security Events mapped to your Configuration Items (CIs). Track, ignore, or plan a remediation chain of events for the Security Event. After the vulnerabilities are addressed and CIs are rescanned, the updated status is sent back to CSM to close the loop. This integration helps increase coordination between IT and Security teams to ensure organizations have clear visibility regarding security threats. While Tenable.io will scan and discover vulnerabilities (open ports, insecure configurations, malware), using this integration with CSM can help enforce the process and policies around the handling of Security Events through Incident or Change Management.

How the mApp Solution Works

CSM provides Tenable.io Integration as a mApp Solution so you can easily integrate Tenable.io into your existing system. Download the mApp Solution from the Cherwell mApp Exchange. Use the Apply mApp wizard to apply the mApp Solution to your CSM system. The Apply mApp Solution wizard generates a Blueprint, which can then be viewed and published to a test or live system to commit the changes.

For a list of items included in the mApp Solution, see Tenable.io Integration mApp Solution Items.
