Getting Started with Tenable.io Vulnerability Management

Last updated: February 20, 2018

Tenable.io allows security and audit teams to share multiple Nessus, Nessus Agent, and Nessus Network Monitor scanners, scan schedules, scan policies and scan results among an unlimited set of users or groups.

By making different resources available for sharing among users and groups, Tenable.io provides endless possibilities for creating customized workflows for vulnerability management programs, regardless of any of the numerous regulatory or compliance drivers that demand keeping your business secure.

Tenable.io can schedule scans, push policies, view scan findings, and control multiple Nessus scanners from the cloud. This enables the deployment of Nessus scanners throughout networks to both public and private clouds as well as multiple physical locations.

Get started by installing scanners and following the Tenable.io workflow.

Note: See the Tenable.io Overview video for a high level explanation of Tenable.io Vulnerability Management.

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning

See the User Guide

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning offers significant improvements over the existing Web Application Tests policy template provided by the Nessus scanner, which is incompatible with modern web applications that rely on Javascript and are built on HTML5. This leaves you with an incomplete understanding of your web application security posture.

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning provides comprehensive vulnerability scanning for modern web applications. Tenable.io Web Application Scanning's accurate vulnerability coverage minimizes false positives and false negatives, ensuring that security teams understand the true security risks in their web applications. The product offers safe external scanning that ensures production web applications are not disrupted or delayed, including those built using HTML5 and AJAX frameworks.
