Research & Development

Tenable Network Security maintains a world-class Research team that tracks the latest vulnerabilities, Internet threats, and compliance standards to ensure our customers have the best possible detection of security issues and regulatory infractions.

Tenable's Research team produces daily updates for the NessusĀ® vulnerability scanner to ensure it can detect the latest security issues. High-quality security tests are written, tested, and published for hundreds of applications, including those released on "Microsoft Patch Tuesday."

With more than 10 million downloaded copies of Nessus, Tenable's Research team continues to receive Nessus scanning feedback from our user community. We regularly work with Nessus users to ensure any performance or scan impact issues are resolved quickly.

Tenable's Research team has separate groups that focus on Nessus configuration auditing, Nessus vulnerability enumeration, passive network traffic analysis, and system log analysis. Research for one type of security issue, such as auditing vulnerable Adobe PDF reader software, is leveraged by other groups. This ensures our customers have many different methods of auditing security issues and detecting abuse.

Members of Tenable's Research team have spoken at various security conferences including DEF CON, Black Hat Briefings, SOURCE, and SANS. Our research areas include web application auditing, botnet detection, active/passive application discovery, and much more.
