Nessus Agents

Nessus Agents can be connected to Tenable.io or Nessus Manager. Agents increase scan flexibility by making it easy to scan assets without host credentials or assets that are offline. In addition, you can use agents to conduct large-scale concurrent scans with little network impact.

In the Scanners section of the Settings page, in the Agents section, you can view details about your linked agents, add or remove agents from Agent Groups, and manage Blackout Windows.

This table displays your linked agents. Click any row in the table to view more details about the agent.

Click here to add or remove agents from Agent Groups.

Click here to manage Blackout Windows.

In the Blackout Windows section, you can block automatic updates from occurring at specific times.

For instructions about installing agents, see Nessus Agent Install.
