Agents (Classic Interface)

Note: This section describes the classic interface. For an introduction to the new interface, see Agents.

Agents increase scan flexibility by making it easy to scan assets without needing ongoing host credentials or assets that are offline. Additionally, agents enable large-scale concurrent scanning with little network impact.

After you install Nessus Agents on a host, the Agent appears on the Linked Agents page.
