Add a Tenable.io Scanner

SecurityCenter supports the use of Tenable.io as a Nessus scanner within SecurityCenter. Tenable.io is an enterprise-class remote vulnerability scanning service that may be used to audit internet-facing IP addresses for both network and web application vulnerabilities from the cloud. While they are not managed by SecurityCenter (e.g., plugins are not pushed from SecurityCenter to the scanner), Tenable.io scanners can be added to SecurityCenter in the same manner that internal, local, or remote Nessus scanners are added.

Before You Begin:

  • Confirm that you have a valid, active Tenable.io subscription.

To add Tenable.io to SecurityCenter as a Nessus scanner:

  1. Log in to SecurityCenter as an administrator user.
  2. Click Resources > Nessus Scanners.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Configure Nessus scanner options, as described in Nessus Scanners. You must configure all required options and use Tenable.io-specific values for some settings:

    Option

    Value for a Tenable.io Configuration

    Host

    cloud.tenable.com

    Port

    443

    Username

    The username for an active Tenable.io user account.

    Password

    The password for an active Tenable.io user account.

    Zones

    The zones within SecurityCenter that use Tenable.io as a scanner.
  5. Click Submit.

Note: Existing scan reports from Tenable.io are not automatically available in SecurityCenter. However, you can manually download and import them into SecurityCenter.

Note: By default, Tenable.io selects the corresponding regional scanner. For example, if you run a scan in the United States, Tenable.io selects the United States scanner. If you run a scan in Germany, Tenable.io selects the Germany scanner.
