System Requirements

You can deploy Tenable.io on-prem on dedicated hardware using the on-prem ISO. You cannot deploy on-prem in virtual environments.

For more information about on-prem port access, see Port Access Requirements.

Hardware Requirements

Instead of hardware requirements, Tenable provides a transparent look at successful environments where on-prem has been tested. Consider the tested environments below and customize your environment depending on the needs of your organization.

Note: The Small asset size environment is the minimum supported environment for deploying Tenable.io on-prem
