In a world increasingly shaped by technology, where benefit and risk go hand in hand, cyber threats continue to grow in scale and complexity, presenting a formidable challenge across the public sector. Cantium’s recent designation as a Tenable Assure Silver Partner reflects our commitment to helping our customers proactively reduce risk and build cyber resilience.

What is a Tenable Assure™ Silver Partner?

Tenable, a global leader in the development of cyber security exposure management products, has adopted a partner-driven business model that recognises the expertise and capabilities of its partners in delivering effective cyber security solutions.

Partners collaborate with Tenable to roll out products and services that help organisations to see, predict and act to address their cyber exposure, translating raw security data into metrics-driven insights that can inform business decisions.

Silver partners, like Cantium, are those partners that Tenable considers to be adept in designing and installing Tenable solutions, often specialising in a specific area. In Cantium’s case, this means pairing our expertise in exposure management with the comprehensive capabilities of the Tenable One platform to help our customers gain a holistic view of their attack surface and proactively manage vulnerabilities across their IT infrastructure.

Why Being a Tenable Partner Matters

In 2023, we witnessed numerous cyber attacks targeting the public sector, ranging from ransomware attacks on government services to data breaches in educational institutions and healthcare systems. Recognising the need to support public sector organisations in transforming their security models, Cantium partnered with Tenable to unlock industry-leading vulnerability management technologies and support for our customers through the Assure partner programme.

Designed for security technology resellers, managed service providers and distributors, the programme equips partners, like Cantium, with cyber security industry and product knowledge that give us the edge when it comes to solving customer problems.

Grant Barnes, Threat & Vulnerability Manager – ICT Operations at Cantium, commented:

“Attaining Silver Partner status is a significant achievement for Cantium; it solidifies our position as a leading provider of cyber security services to the public sector and serves as proof of our continued commitment to assisting our customers in understanding, prioritising and mitigating vulnerabilities to reduce cyber exposure risk.”
