Nessus, a great tool for the analysis and remediation of vulnerabilities

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Tenable, in its variety of versions has a large section to train its customers, it is not a surprise that escalate positions with the passage of time and with every improvement that creates true expectations. Within the company we have deployed Nesss and it really has been helpful to fin every vulnerability that the scans throw at us, the information is very complete from the discovery stages, we feel very satisfied, that the tool has been implemented in other infrastructure and the results are very heplful.

Vorteile:

Nessus and its graphical interface is attractive, I would say that minimalist but punctual and charming, it is very clean, it should be applauded that in each version they improve it and include some types of scans that can bring you more complete results when you carry out an analysis. It is very remarkable that the plugins in your database are up to date and that your community generates an adequate response on time.

Nachteile:

For now all the experience I have with Nessus has been nice, with the constancy that you have in your team working every day to improve it I know it will be a good tool for vulnerability detection.

Nessus Professional Gets The Job Done

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: This product does a great job of informing your IT and security groups on what may be vulnerable in your environment. Especially if your organization is looking to begin a program, start small and use this service to build up your processes and program before sinking large amounts of money into other services or products.

Vorteile:

Nessus is still the industry leader in this arena, and the ability for the product to identify vulnerabilities accurately is still the high water mark to beat. You can be up and running in just a few minutes, and the ability to have recurring scans is a great way for this product to help you with your security program. The "Plugin Output" fields help greatly when trying to determine if tests are a false positive, and lends additional credence to your system administrators when you can show them exactly *why* something has been detected as a vulnerability.

Nachteile:

There are no ways to track vulnerabilities or your efforts to monitor them over time; this truly is just a point-in-time view of your environment unless you upgrade to a much more expensive product.

It's a vulnerability scanner

4 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: The client side agent is lightweight and easy to deploy once you get it successfully installed and reporting in. The adminstrative console is somewhat confusing, but provides very detailed reports that you can customize to your liking.

Vorteile:

Does what it is supposed to. Provides a good overview of vulnerabilities across systems for internal security assessments and audits. Easy to deploy MSI package

Nachteile:

Support is something to be desired. During initial setup in our environment, there were several complications when attempting to connect machines to the tenable.io cloud and provide the client machines with updates. The support group couldn't provide necessary assistance and we ultimately left to troubleshoot on our own.

Nessus for vulnerability scanning

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: After our first major client security audit, we implemented Nessus to run weekly internal and external vulnerability scans. Not only does this help satisfy our client demands, but it helps us find vulnerabilities in our systems and helps us find patches and solutions to the vulnerabilities.

Vorteile:

Easy to set up, use and report on. We started using this application after our first major client security audit a few years ago. It's a been great tool.

Nachteile:

Not much to dislike with Nessus. Maybe some better reports, and the cost could always be better, although it's not bad.

Nessus - Stay compliant

4 vor 10 Monaten

Kommentare: When it comes to compliance, Nessus really plays major roll. Nessus ensures that your network is accurately assessed.

Vorteile:

Nessus gives you scan presets that are designed for each compliance body such as PCI, HIPAA, NIST etc. Administrators can easily select the patch level and run the vulnerability assessments. And even you can customize it as per your requirement too.

Nachteile:

Nessus scanner becomes bit laggy when it comes to scanning of nodes with large data sets and applications.

The Defacto Vulnerability Tool for the Goverment

5 vor 2 Monaten Neu

Kommentare: Good tool that is a must use for the government.

Vorteile:

First, it was free for us to use since we a government entity, and I was able to get training on the product. It is relatively easy to use once everything is set up, and it can scan just about anything.

Nachteile:

The initial setup can be a chore. Adding scan zones and repositories, as well as having to update plugins on a regular basis. Also, sometimes scans fail with very little information as to why.

Nessus made the day easy with vulnerabilities !!!

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Nessus is excellent for O/S vulnerability detection. Compared to other scanners Nessus provide less false positives. Reports needs to improve. It is better if nessus professional have option to track an assets progress over the time with vulnerability management features. Scanner is quiet faster compared to other scanners and worth for money you pay.

Vorteile:

Nessus professional is a leading vulnerability scanner and can be easily deployed. It can be installed on both windows and Linux environments. Interfaces are simple and easy to navigate. It provides vulnerabilities and recommendation with detail descriptions. You can purchase the product according to the size of your network. Nessus professional supports integration with SIEMs . Nessus agents are doing great job and can be used to continuously monitor the network.

Nachteile:

Nessus professional doesn't provide overall visibility of an asset with the time. No trend information available and cannot track whether asset has reduce vulnerabilities over the time. I'm not satisfied with given reports and need to improve the reports. It is better if they can fine tune the compliance reports. Web assessments area is still weak on Nessus. It can not conduct comprehensive assessments against web applications. Card data discover plugin is bit difficult to configure and we didn't get the expected results.

Worth the purchase for Vulnerability assessment

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall the scan results are very efficient and reports generated are very effective in securing the network assets of an organization. The setup was easier and application is user-friendly once you get the hang of it.

Vorteile:

The application is very useful in findings for vulnerabilities in the network assets and reporting them with quality reports containing where exactly the issues are found and its mitigation. The tool updates are very relevant and even reports zero day vulnerabilities for particular software and technologies made use by the network asset. It covers almost all the security issues present in a network device or servers with proper credentialed scans.

Nachteile:

The application has to be kept up to date for covering all the latest patch vulnerabilities and it lists even ssl and ssh related vulnerabilities for database servers or internal routers, so our team has to identify the necessary findings to report to customer.

Easy to Use Vulnerability Scanner

5 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Good canned reports and dashboards, which show where your critical risks are. Ability to export date into CSV or Excel format was welcome and made manipulating data easier.

Vorteile:

What I like most about Nessus is that they have many plugins available for the various vulnerabilities that are out there. The ability to scan static and dynamic asset lists is great. The ability to schedule recurring scan jobs is helpful and aids in the scanning of systems. Integration with ticketing systems such as ServiceNow is also great.

Nachteile:

It would be nice if their website had the published or revised date of their plugins. Resolving issues related to their Nessus Agents would also be nice. The UI could be improved so that queries didn't take so long. It would be nice if there was an easy way to purge old data associated with particular IPs.

One of the best vulnerability scanners

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Nessus has allowed us in the company to develop a timely remediation system, since with the results of the scanners our clients can manage the remediation in a more timely manner without needing to apply more invasive policies on the client. Additionally it has helped us that the scans can be done in a short period of time in comparison to others in the market and in this way improve our service.

Vorteile:

This product is one of the best network scanners on the market. After properly installing the server with the scanner in the network and placing the credentials of the administrator, the system works perfectly. Vulnerability scanning and compliance scanning are executed properly, all the standards included in Nessus are very useful.

Nachteile:

The vulnerability scanner is not totally accurate in some situations and some results must be checked to verify the vulnerability. Therefore, it is possible that there are false positives. Many times the supplements are not updated in a timely manner and this hurts even more with the false positives generated.

Nessus, Finding all those vulnerabilities!

5 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Tenable is one of the best scanners out there to me. Easy to use and easy to hire people with experience in it

Vorteile:

Nessus is great about releasing new plugins for vulns. It's lightweight and has an agent option or a hardware scanner option. The cost is pretty standard.

Nachteile:

The reports that tenable can generate are lack luster at best. We use the API to pull the info we want, but that takes more work and development time than we like

Nessus Vulnerability Scanner

4 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Its a good tool but in my personal opinion using the free version of software is enough for testing purposes.

Vorteile:

- Ease of use for non-authenticated scans - Trusted in case of Network Infrastructure Scanning - Can scan almost everything on a network - Can take a subnet or range for scanning in one go

Nachteile:

- Needs improvement in case of web application scan and authenticated scan. - Very difficult to schedule an authenticated scan for a web application - There are some other tools that take login URL and landing URL. Meanwhile prevents the logout URL for session termination itself which increses ease for users

Nessus Scan - A tool to start your test with.

5 vor 8 Monaten

Kommentare: Great tool to meet sudden deadlines and effective reconn tool for Network penetration testing.

Vorteile:

This software is great for new bees and profressionals in network penetration testing. I would like to share some highlights and good points I feel: 1. The UI is really good and easy to use. 2. The results are shown in an organized manner. 3. Reports can be easily shared with excel exports. 4. Vulebrabilities are prioritized for you with Critical, High, Medium and Low. (CVEs results) 5. Scheduling time and date. 6. Sharing it with the team - nice access management.

Nachteile:

With the product proven to be great, some drawbacks of this product are: 1. False Positives are present, and its not your only tool to rely for a pentest. 2. It is not a web application scanner, its mainly a network scan. So if you are expecting to work like any other web app OWASP scanner, its not.
