Tenable.sc Licensing Requirements

Tenable.sc requires a license key and a maintenance code, which may be purchased directly from Tenable Network Security or via a purchase order through Authorized Enterprise Partners. The license key and maintenance code will be used when installing and configuring your copy of Tenable.sc.

Tenable.sc is licensed by the total number of active IP addresses it manages and the hostname of the system on which it is installed. For example, a customer can purchase a 500 IP Tenable.sc license for the hostname of “security”. This key allows that particular server to scan several networks, but as soon as 500 IP addresses are discovered, the license limit becomes active. There is no licensing limit to the number of Nessus installations that can be deployed with Tenable.sc.

You will need to provide the hostname of the machine on which Tenable.sc will be installed to [email protected] or on the Tenable Community site, as described in the Tenable Community Guide. This can be obtained by entering the “hostname” command at a system shell prompt.

For more information about license counts and adding licenses to Tenable.sc, see Licenses in the Tenable.sc User Guide.

Tenable.sc Continuous View (Tenable.sc CV)

The Tenable.sc CV platform provides combined Tenable products, which includes licensing for Nessus, the Nessus Network Monitor (NNM), and a Log Correlation Engine (LCE) server that are all managed by a Tenable.sc installation. This provides a comprehensive security platform across your IT environment.

Tenable.sc CV may be purchased directly from Tenable Network Security or via a purchase order through Authorized Enterprise Partners. All license keys and Activation Codes are received from Tenable, and are used when installing and configuring the various Tenable.sc CV components. There is no licensing limit to the number of Nessus and NNM installations that can be deployed with Tenable.sc CV.

Please see the Nessus, Nessus Network Monitor, and Log Correlation Engine requirements for more information on how each component is licensed for a Tenable.sc CV purchase.
