Before You Upgrade
If you are planning an upgrade from SecurityCenter 4.x, due to the many enhancements and changes made in the SecurityCenter 5 solution, Tenable strongly encourages you to install and test the latest version of SecurityCenter in a pre-production environment prior to upgrading in your production environment to ensure the new workflows and enhancements are compatible with your current workflows. To receive an evaluation key that will allow you to install SecurityCenter in a pre-production environment for evaluation, log in to the Tenable Support Portal and click "Activation Codes". Under SecurityCenter, you will see a link to download a demo key for the SecurityCenter 5 solution.
SecurityCenter 5.4.3 supports the following direct upgrade paths:
- 4.8.2 > 5.4.3
- 5.[0-3] > 5.4.3
Installations running previous versions of SecurityCenter 4.x must upgrade to at least 4.8.2 prior to upgrading to SecurityCenter 5.4.3. For more information about upgrading to SecurityCenter 5.4.3, refer to the SecurityCenter 5.4 User Guide.
If you are using Nessus agents, SecurityCenter 5.4.3 requires Nessus Cloud or Nessus Manager 6.8 or later. If you are not using Nessus agents, SecurityCenter requires Nessus Scanner 6.3 or later. SecurityCenter requires the Passive Vulnerability Scanner 5.1 or later. If SecurityCenter Continuous View uses the Log Correlation Engine (LCE) for log processing, SecurityCenter requires LCE 4.8 or later for complete feature compatibility.
NOTE: Due to changes in API architecture, all APIs created using SecurityCenter 4.x have been deprecated. For more information about SecurityCenter REST API, refer to the SecurityCenter REST API Documentation.
