With more than one million users, Nessus® is the world’s most widely deployed vulnerability, configuration, and compliance assessment product. Nessus prevents attacks by identifying the vulnerabilities, configuration issues, and malware that hackers could use to penetrate your network. It is as important to run these assessments in AWS as it is in any other IT environment. Amazon recommends that all new and existing AWS customers scan their AWS instances while in development and operations and before publishing to AWS users.

A pre-authorized Nessus scanner is available in the Amazon Marketplace. The Nessus scanner links to and is managed by, and allows pre-authorized scanning of AWS EC2 environments and instances. The AWS Connector provides real-time visibility and inventory of EC2 assets in AWS by querying the AWS API. Customers interested in leveraging the pre-authorized Nessus scanner to secure their AWS environments and instances must have active and Amazon Web Services accounts.
