Tenable.sc (Formerly SecurityCenter) 5.8.0 Release Notes (2018-11-07)

This release is end-of-life (EOL). Upgrade to a supported version. For information about EOL dates and policies for Tenable products, see the Tenable Software Release Lifecycle Matrix and Policy.

Tip: Tenable is currently rebranding SecurityCenter as Tenable.sc. For more information, see the announcement.

If you are running version 5.5.0 or later, you can upgrade directly to version 5.8.0. If you are running a version earlier than 5.5.0, upgrade to version 5.5.0 before upgrading to version 5.8.0.

Note: If your upgrade path skips versions of Tenable.sc (e.g., upgrading from 5.6.2 to 5.8.0), Tenable recommends reviewing the release notes for all skipped versions. You may need to update your configurations because of features and functionality added in skipped versions.

You can download the update files from the Tenable Downloads page.

For more information, see the Security Advisory.
