Getting Started with Tenable.io Web Application Scanning

Last updated: November 09, 2017

Tenable.io 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.

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

If you are using Tenable.io Web Application Scanning for the first time, see the workflow to get started.
