Welcome to the MSSP Portal

Last updated: May 14, 2020

The MSSP Portal 1.0.x provides secure and accessible ways for Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) administrators to manage and maintain multiple customer instances of Tenable products in a single interface.

See the Get Started with the MSSP Portal for more information.

Managing Customer Accounts

Maintaining spreadsheets full of customer product data can be tedious, inaccurate, and difficult to track. The MSSP Portal features the default Accounts page, which displays all the customers that you maintain in one easily accessible location. In the MSSP Portal, you can add and remove instances, view relevant customer information about the instances, and add customized notes that include valuable internal tracking or customer contact information. For more information, see Accounts.

Single Sign on to Customer Instance

Tenable recognizes that each customer instance needs unique login credentials for security. Maintaining these credentials in spreadsheets can be difficult and unsafe. Using the MSSP Portal's Single Sign-on feature, you can access any customer's instance and navigate the user interface with administrator permissions. When finished, you can then seamlessly pivot back to the MSSP Portal. This approach allows you to sign in once to the MSSP Portal and administer separate customer accounts and instances. For more information, see Instances.

Other Products Vulnerability Management

See the User Guide® allows security and audit teams to share multiple Nessus, Nessus Agent, and Nessus Network Monitor scanners, scan schedules, scan policies and scan results among an unlimited set of users or groups. By making different resources available for sharing among users and groups, provides endless possibilities for creating customized workflows for vulnerability management programs, regardless of any of the numerous regulatory or compliance drivers that demand keeping your business secure. can schedule scans, push policies, view scan findings, and control multiple Nessus scanners from the cloud. This enables the deployment of Nessus scanners throughout networks to both public and private clouds as well as multiple physical locations. API

See the API

The API can be leveraged to develop your own applications using various features of the platform, including scanning, creating policies, and user management. Container Security

See the User Guide Container Security stores and scans container images as the images are built, before production. It provides vulnerability and malware detection, along with continuous monitoring of container images. By integrating with the continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) systems that build container images, Container Security ensures every container reaching production is secure and compliant with enterprise policy. Web Application Scanning

See the User Guide Web Application Scanning offers significant improvements over the existing Web Application Tests policy template provided by the Nessus scanner, which is incompatible with modern web applications that rely on Javascript and are built on HTML5. This leaves you with an incomplete understanding of your web application security posture. Web Application Scanning provides comprehensive vulnerability scanning for modern web applications. Web Application Scanning's accurate vulnerability coverage minimizes false positives and false negatives, ensuring that security teams understand the true security risks in their web applications. The product offers safe external scanning that ensures production web applications are not disrupted or delayed, including those built using HTML5 and AJAX frameworks.
