SecurityCenter Licensing Requirements

SecurityCenter 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 SecurityCenter.

SecurityCenter 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 SecurityCenter 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 SecurityCenter.

You will need to provide the hostname of the machine on which SecurityCenter will be installed to licenses@tenable.com or within the Activation Codes section of the Tenable Support Portal. This can be obtained by entering the “hostname” command at a system shell prompt. Please see the Nessus section for more information on how to deploy Nessus with SecurityCenter.

For information about uploading SecurityCenter license activation codes, see the SecurityCenter user guide.

SecurityCenter Continuous View (CV)

Tenable’s SecurityCenter Continuous View (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 managed by a SecurityCenter installation. This provides a comprehensive security platform across your IT environment.

SecurityCenter 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 SecurityCenter CV components. There is no licensing limit to the number of Nessus and NNM installations that can be deployed with SecurityCenter CV.

Please see the Nessus, Nessus Network Monitor, and Log Correlation Engine sections in this guide for more information on how each component is licensed for a SecurityCenter CV purchase.
