Scanners and Agents in the Classic Interface
Note: This section describes the classic Tenable.io interface. For information about scanners and agents in the new interface, see Sensors.
By default, Tenable.io is configured with a regional, specific cloud scanner. In addition to using the default cloud scanner, you can link Nessus scanners, NNM scanners, and Nessus Agents to Tenable.io.
For more information, see Scanners in the Classic Interface.
Agents increase scan flexibility by making it easy to scan assets without needing ongoing host credentials or assets that are offline. Additionally, agents enable large-scale concurrent scanning with little network impact.
