Synopsis :

A proxy service is listening on this port.

Description :

The remote service appears to be a Tenable Network Security proxy for
either the Tenable Passive Vulnerability Scanner (PVS) or the Tenable
Security Center 3 proxy.

PVS monitors network traffic in real-time, detecting server and client
vulnerabilities, and a PVS proxy is used by Tenable's SecurityCenter 4
to transfer report data between a PVS sensor and a SecurityCenter
console.

The Security Center 3 proxy is for legacy communication requirements.
