Tenable Launches Hardware and Virtual Appliances for its Unified Security Monitoring™ platform and Nessus® Vulnerability Scanner
Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring and creator of the popular and award-winning Nessus Vulnerability Scanner, announces the Tenable Appliance to expand the deployment options for its enterprise class security and compliance management software and Nessus vulnerability scanner.
The Tenable Appliance
The Tenable Appliance is a browser-managed application that hosts various Tenable enterprise applications including Nessus, Security Center (SC), Log Correlation Engine (LCE) and Passive Vulnerability Scanner (PVS). The Tenable Appliance is available as either a virtual machine (VM) download or as a physical hardware appliance.
The Tenable Appliance provides a preinstalled image of all Tenable applications in one easy to configure interface. The Tenable Virtual Appliance is available for Tenable customers and is provided for use with VMware Server, VMware Player and VMware ESX Server.
Ease of Use
Tenable Appliance operations encompass simple high-level tasks such as backup and restore, software updates, shutdown/restart, updates, support functions and log analysis. Since the Tenable Appliance is primarily web-based, no command-line expertise is necessary.
“The experience of developing and deploying the Nessus Virtual Appliance early last year has provided us with valuable insight for the enterprise-level Tenable appliances. Thousands of our customers appreciated a 100% web based method to provision and manage their Nessus scanners,” said Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable. “We used the same approach for the Tenable virtual and hardware appliances which means customers already familiar with our virtual appliance can immediately make use of the same technology running on high speed hardware.”
Tenable hardware appliances are available in several models to service enterprises of all sizes. Currently, Nessus and Security Center applications are available on the appliance with the Log Correlation Engine and Passive Vulnerability Scanner to be released soon.
