Nessus, a great tool for the analysis and remediation of vulnerabilities
Héctor joel B.
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 for vulnerability scanning
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.

Easy to Use Vulnerability Scanner
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
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.

Kommentare: Best money/capabilities balance.
Vorteile: Tenable products dictates market standard for securty assesment. Nessus Profesional is part of that family.

It's easy to configure, reliable and what's most importand it will give you a hint how to solve every voulnerability detected inside your infrastructure.
Nachteile: It misses some interesting predefined reports and usefull configuration options comparing to Tenable.io.

Nessus, Finding all those vulnerabilities!
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
Kommentare: Its a good tool but in my personal opinion using the free version of software is enough for testing purposes.
- 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
- 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

Vulnerability Management from the Pioneers of VM
Jose a G.
Kommentare: Vulnerabilities across the network, devices and the whole environment. Secyrity needs to be based on several systems that can consolidate data about your security posture and with NEssus is a great place to start when you do not have visibility on what is happening further that your PC and internet.
Trust on leader on VM market and movement
Plugins updated daily so, threats and breaches can be identified as they are scanned into the environment
Using Nessus Manager you can deploy scanners and agents across subnets, you can schedule multiple scans in your environment
Best in class configuration audit data base for compliance check
Credential and uncredential scans
Agents for sensitive devices or services that can be affected by an active scan or are in transit
Nessus in the Pro version is limited to one user
Not follow up or comparison between latest scan and recent
IP address Change on the network or location increase the IP count even when it is the same device
reports customizing can be difficult depending on what is expected to have
you are not aware that a specific device or service can be sensitive to Nessus untill you finish with the service stopped or the performance of a service gets compromised.

Great vulnerability assessment tool
Kommentare: Very good tool to perform vulnerability assessment for home users to business users.
Vorteile: It supports from simple host discovery scans to detailed vulnerability scans like malware scan, credential path audit. This tool can also perform scan to test the latest vulnerabilities like Meltdown and Spectre and WannaCry ransomware etc. This vulnerability scanner has almost up-to-date plugins. The plugins are updated almost daily to weekly to scan the latest vulnerabilities in the market. Nessus scanner can perform the vulnerability scan for various operating systems like: Windows, Amazon linux, CentOS, FreeBSD, MacOS, Redhat, Debian etc It also supports vulnerability scan for various compliance standards like PCI DSS. This scanner can also perform credential based scan on the target machine. The major advantage is, this scanner gives the most accurate vulnerability details about the machine with very few false positives which other scanners in the market fails to do.
Nachteile: The professional version of this tool is very costly. It yet doesn’t support credential based scan for machines which have 2 factor authentication implemented on it.

Its super easy to use and implement on any network, and the tenable university and the community it’s a plus that make it even easier. There are many way how to export the result of any scan, but the best are in HTML and PDF, because are easy to understand and explain to any person. I really like it and going to continue using it
Vorteile: That it was really easy to implement and use
Nachteile: The reports are very basic and need to improve.

Enterprise-grade vulnerability scanner
Kommentare: Nessus provides me with an in-depth overview of the vulnerabilities of every asset in the organization. The vulnerability management system integrated with it makes prioritization very easy, so you can quick work progressively towards a secure environment.
Vorteile: Very easy to use. Very easy to configure a scan. Very easy to export a report and data about a scan. Very easy to customize scan templates. You can also create your own audit templates, so you can customize this tool for the specific policies of the organization. If you get to know the ins and outs of the scanner, you can get the most value from it.
Nachteile: Most of the time the documentation is incomplete if you get picky with the use cases. Support via Tenable Support Portal has been very slow lately, it seems like if they had a single person to handle all the support cases they have everyday. It used to be slow, but that's been improved a lot in the latest version I've used (7.0.2).

Nessus Professional On Premise
I currently use it to perform vulnerability assessments towards the customers' targets.
The results are usually accurate but it's always better to evaluate them manually to confirm/deny their existence.
The readability of the results is much easier through the Nessus interface than via the exported reports (PDF or HTML).
Very frequent vulnerability database updates
Easy to use
Some false positives
Some false negatives
Running it in a virtual machine in NAT configuration sometimes does not give results as good as in bridge mode
The reporting phase could be much better and should be more customizable

Great product and easy to set up and use.
Vorteile: It did what it was advertised to do and did it well. The updates to the plugins were done regularly and it found everything out there that was a vulnerability
Nachteile: Lacked reporting module that helped show more of the picture for non technical people and pretty graphs. To get those you needed to move to Tenable.io or SecurityCenter.

THE vulnerability scanning software to beat
Vorteile: Nessus is the gold standard of vulnerability scanning. A robust solution, highly customizable for every organization with cloud, on prem and client install options.
Nachteile: Without the local client or group policy that shuts off wifi when your on wired you may get hit with 2 licenses per device because it sees both the wireless and wired instance. Something to know going into it if you are buying.

Run and Gun!
Vorteile: Nessus allows you to perform both authenticated and unauthenticated scans for a list of hosts within your network to check for potential vulnerabilities and missing patches, out dated software etc. The post presentation so nicely done and all referrals are there to plan out the remediation process if there are any.
Nachteile: You have to have a powerful rig to get the most out of this software since it's a bit CPU hungry. It'll get days to run a scan for 100 hosts if you have low end system.
