This user guide describes the installation, configuration, and administration of Tenable Network Security’s SecurityCenter. Please email any comments and suggestions to

SecurityCenter is a comprehensive vulnerability analytics solution that provides complete visibility into the security posture of your distributed and complex IT infrastructure. SecurityCenter consolidates and evaluates all of your vulnerability data from across your entire IT infrastructure, illustrates vulnerability trends over time, and assesses risk with actionable context for effective remediation prioritization.

Many of the functions described throughout this document are dependent upon the role and permissions of the logged in user. For instance, an Administrative user will be able to manage attached Nessus and PVS scanners, LCE servers, and other configuration options but will lack the ability to create and launch scans. An Organizational user will be able to perform scans, analyze results, create reports, and other daily vulnerability and event detection results.
