Tenable Lumin

Get Started with Tenable Lumin

The following is not supported in Tenable FedRAMP Moderate environments. For more information, see the Tenable FedRAMP Moderate Product Offering.

Tenable Lumin features augment Tenable Vulnerability Management data. Use Tenable Lumin to quickly and accurately assess your exposure risk and compare your health and remediation performance to other Tenable customers in your Salesforce industry and the larger population.

Tenable Lumin correlates raw vulnerability data with asset business criticality and threat context data to support faster, more targeted analysis workflows than traditional vulnerability management tools.

Tenable Web App Scanning

Tenable Web App Scanning offers significant improvements over the existing Web Application Tests policy template provided by the Tenable 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.

Tenable Web App Scanning provides comprehensive vulnerability scanning for modern web applications. Tenable Web App 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.

Tenable Container Security

The following is not supported in Tenable FedRAMP Moderate environments. For more information, see the Tenable FedRAMP Moderate Product Offering.

Tenble 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, Tenable Container Security ensures every container reaching production is secure and compliant with enterprise policy.
