Agent Scans

Agent scans fetch results from agent scans you add and launch in Tenable.sc. When you add an agent scan in Tenable.sc, Tenable.sc creates a corresponding agent scan in an instance of Nessus Manager or Tenable.io that you linked to Tenable.sc. When you launch an agent scan in Tenable.sc, Tenable.sc launches the corresponding scan in Nessus Manager or Tenable.io, then imports the results into Tenable.sc.

You can create agent scans in Tenable.sc using only the Basic Agent Scan template. For more information, see Agent Scan and Policy Templates in the Nessus Agent Deployment and User Guide and Tenable-Provided Agent Templates in the Tenable.io User Guide.

For more information about agent scanning in Tenable.sc, see Agent Scanning.

The Agent Scans page displays a list of all available agent scans. Tenable.sc shares newly created agent scan import schedules to everyone within the same user group when users have the appropriate permissions.

When more than one agent scan result is ready on Tenable.io or Nessus Manager, the scan results queue for import to Tenable.sc.
