Tenable Completes Acquisition of Accurics
Columbia, MD (October 4, 2021) -- Tenable Holdings, Inc. (“Tenable”) (Nasdaq: TENB), the Cyber Exposure company, today announced that it completed the acquisition of Accurics, Inc. (“Accurics”), a pioneer in delivering cloud-native security for DevOps and security teams, on October 1, 2021. The acquisition will introduce a complete lifecycle approach to modern risk management, leveraging Infrastructure as Code (IaC) to fix problems for any cloud environment — before they can expose the business to risk.
Tenable and Accurics will deliver integrated, cloud-native security to identify IaC and runtime issues, detect new cloud infrastructure resources and configuration changes and address security risks by merging remediation code into workflows.
“IaC is the future of cloud. The scalability, flexibility and agility it offers are business enablers and can simultaneously enhance security,” said Amit Yoran, chairman and CEO, Tenable. “With Accurics, we’ll deliver a complete lifecycle approach to risk management that ensures cloud deployments are secure by default. Now, enterprise cloud journeys can be implemented securely at the speed of cloud.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Tenable acquired Accurics for a total purchase price of approximately $160 million in cash, subject to certain customary purchase price adjustments.
