Vulnerability Management

Tenable Vulnerability Management and Tenable Security Center enable security teams to focus on the vulnerabilities and assets, which matter most to the organization, while deprioritizing the vulnerabilities that attackers are unlikely to ever exploit. Regular testing, including vulnerability assessments help identify and remediate potential vulnerabilities in software and web applications.

As information about new vulnerabilities is discovered and released into the general public domain, Tenable Research designs plugins to detect and evaluate the risks posed by these vulnerabilities. The plugins contain vulnerability information, a simplified set of remediation actions and the algorithm to test for the presence of security exposures. Tenable Research has published many plugins, which detect application issues, as shown in the following image:

In addition, the Tenable OWASP report and dashboard (for Tenable Vulnerability Management) and the OWASP report and dashboard (for Tenable Security Center) provides organizations the ability to monitor web applications by identifying the top 10 most critical web application security risks as described in the OWASP Top 10 Application Security Risks document.
