"Tenable Nessus - A Complete Solution for all your security needs"

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: The Console . The Tenable Nessus console has all the modules like M, PC ,Discovery . The Same agent can be used to perform all these tasks and scan for vulnerabilities . Its pretty straightforward and easy.Plus Integration it offers with other tools is awesome to have.

Vorteile:

Tenable helps companies discover, design, diagonoze,defend and monitor their business assets and corresponding threats .

Nachteile:

Reporting format is a bit shaggy if you would ask me ..But having said that , the addition and deletion of controls also has to be more easily doable.

Nessus Professional Gets The Job Done

5,0 vor 4 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.

Nessus: Vulnerability Scanner with Appealing Reporting Capabilities

4,0 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: Nessus is a must for network security testing and vulnerability analysis. Together with Nmap, Nessus gives a much better penetration testing and vulnerability analysis of networks and virtualized cloud infrastructures.

Vorteile:

I used Nessus with nmap for testing the vulnerability of virtualized networks in controlled environments. The main motivation behind the selection of Nessus is to have a user-friendly vulnerability report with categorized network exploits and OS weaknesses. Nessus provides accurate results (though some false positives are noticed in hardened Linux environments). The advanced reporting capabilities in Nessus makes the vulnerability results easily exported and documented to relational databases. Moreover, the various Nessus reports can be compared after hardening the OS with different security configurations.

Nachteile:

Nessus is very accurate but sometimes, especially with latest versions of Ubuntu, many false positives are noticed. Still Nessus results are considered highly informative and the false positives can be autonomously filtered to provide more accurate vulnerability analysis and reporting.

Nessus for vulnerability scanning

5,0 vor 5 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.

Best Vulnerability Management Tool

Very easy to use. The reporting feature is also great, as it is very well formatted and it's possible to export the results into various formats.

Everything is great as is in Nessus, especially if compared to other competitors. Nothing negative to say about it.

Nessus, Finding all those vulnerabilities!

5,0 vor 5 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

Best Vulnerability Scanner

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Nessus is one of the best vulnerability scanning tools in the Cyber Security field. There are no arguments with the functionality of the tool providing itself. As an overall comment, Nessus is very good to manage your infrastructure assets from cyber attacks.

Vorteile:

Nessus is very unique and has a user-friendly interface. Also, the deployment is very easy and we can update plugins by using GUI.

Nachteile:

As per my 2+ years of experience with the Nessus tool, sometimes it contains false-positive results. Therefore, we need to manually go through all results before submitting them to our customers.

Great product and easy to set up and use.

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

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

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

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.

Excellent Visibility

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Vulnerability assessments in client domains both internal and external have been highly simplified with the usage of Nessus, making security recommendations easier.

Vorteile:

It is relatively straightforward to scan an entire enterprise network due to the ease-of-use with the policies that are available. Customized creation enhances the overall process.

Nachteile:

Configuration expertise is required when it comes to specifically tailored assessments in separate domains. This can be slightly tedious with expected results; but once you get it right, the scans are highly effective.

Vulnerability scanning at its finest

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Very happy we purchased and implemented this software. It allows you to be proactive in locating vulnerabilities on the network and patching them before something bad happens. Well worth the cost.

Vorteile:

Ease of use and simplicity. Rarely have had to reference online documentation. They make it very easy to figure out and use right away. For more specific sets of scans or devices, the documentation is helpful. There is also a very active community on their forums. Reporting is very informative, and scheduling makes it so you don't have to interact much after everything is all set.

Nachteile:

Sometimes there are some false positives that take time to realize. Also seems to think many of the things they mark as medium risk are low risk. This depends on your situation and network, but for me most of the medium risks can be disregarded.

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.

excellent tool to mitigate security breaches

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: With this software it is possible to perform network analysis to determine if there are vulnerabilities in the systems, malware, among other types of ramsomware. It also allows analyzing web environments and ensuring that companies know what threats and vulnerabilities are present in their information assets.

Vorteile:

That I can analyze networks, web applications, elements in the cloud and customize the type of output or analysis that will be executed, either manually or I can program it. Additionally I like the section to make scanners and comply with PCI policies.

Nachteile:

So far the tool has covered my expectations. So far the tool has covered my expectations. I usually use it to perform advanced scans where I can select which elements I want to enable.
