Volpara Health integrates Tenable into DevSecOps program

06 Nov 2019

Tenable has today announced that Volpara Health Technologies has chosen Tenable as its Cyber Exposure solutions provider to manage, measure and reduce cyber risk in its DevSecOps program.

Volpara Health Technologies strives to improve detection rates of breast cancer.

The ASX-listed organisation makes software for analysing images to aid in the early detection of breast cancer, plus cloud-based software for running a breast cancer screening clinic.

The company’s infrastructure is unique in that all information systems and data are cloud-based, with no production, hardware or systems on-premises.

As such, cloud security and unified visibility across its hosted environments are paramount.

Security tests and controls are an integral part of Volpara’s software development lifecycle (SDLC) and are embedded in the development pipeline.

But identifying and monitoring its modern assets, such as web applications and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, have traditionally been labour intensive with much of the work requiring manual processes.

Software code is constantly changing and new vulnerabilities are discovered each day, which makes it difficult for security teams to keep up.

Using Tenable.io Container Security, Volpara is able to automate its security testing process.

Tenable.io Container Security integrates into Volpara’s CI/CD pipeline to identify vulnerabilities and malware during development and ensures every container reaching production is secure and compliant with enterprise policy.

“Cybersecurity is a perpetual battle to stay ahead of threats and bad actors in the wild,” says Volpara Health Technologies CIO and CISO Gareth Beaumont.

“We selected Tenable for its ease of use, automation capabilities, expertise and brand reputation.

“The ability to automatically assess each new container image and to continuously protect the image as new vulnerabilities are discovered is invaluable.

“We now have visibility into the security of our CI/CD pipeline and running containers, allowing us to focus on what matters most: saving lives.”

Tenable A/NZ country manager Bede Hackney says, “With patient lives on the line, we want to equip security teams with the tools needed to identify where they are exposed and to what extent.”
