Tenable.sc does not support an unlicensed demo mode. License keys are required for Tenable.sc and for all attached Tenable products.

Your Tenable.sc License
Tenable.sc licenses are valid for a specific hostname and for a maximum number of active IP addresses. Assets are counted towards your license limit depending on how Tenable.sc discovers, or sees, the asset. In general, an asset does not count against your license limit unless it has been assessed for vulnerabilities.
For example, if you purchase a 500 IP address Tenable.sc license, you can perform host discovery on your network but you cannot assess more than 500 IP addresses. For more information about discovery and assessment scanning, see Scanning Overview.
Tenable.sc generates a warning in the web interface when you approach or exceed the license limit.
|Counted Toward License||Not Counted Toward License|
A single IP address counts once toward your license, even if it was scanned by multiple methods or stored in multiple repositories.
Note: If you use an alternative port scanner, Tenable.sc counts the detected IP addresses against your license.
