SecurityCenter Continuous View is First Real-time Vulnerability Management Solution to Earn Perfect Score

Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring (USM), today announced that SecurityCenter Continuous View (SC CV) has been awarded a 5-star rating for overall quality in SC Magazine’s 2013 Vulnerability Assessment Tools group test. SC CV is the only active scanning and passive monitoring solution to receive a five-star rating from SC Magazine, the leading publication for up-to-date information on products and technology for information and computer security professionals.

SC Magazine’s Dr. Peter Stephenson published his review February 1, 2013 after conducting a full analysis of SC CV across features, ease of use, performance, documentation, support and overall value. Testing showed that SC CV meets SC Magazine’s guidelines for a 5-star rating in every category.

The overall 5-star rating lauds SC CV’s functionality, with Dr. Stephenson noting “this solution is an excellent product at a reasonable cost for large enterprises.” Dr. Stephenson also explains that “Tenable's Nessus active scanner [and] its Passive Vulnerability Scanner (PVS) captures vulnerabilities in static assets, transient systems and cloud access, reducing exposure to zero-day disclosed vulnerabilities and out-of-cycle emergency patches.”

SecurityCenter Continuous View stands apart from its peers in vulnerability management by uniquely combining active scanning and patented passive monitoring technology to help organizations manage risk from:

  • iOS, Android and other Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) vulnerabilities, captured with real-time detection and integration with leading mobile device management solutions.
  • Malicious processes and botnet communications.
  • Cloud services that manage sensitive data.
  • Virtual system vulnerabilities.
  • Attack Paths – hidden exploitable routes to sensitive assets

Said Ron Gula, CEO and founder of Tenable Network Security: “We’re pleased to have earned this five-star accolade from SC Magazine. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our engineers; our team is proud to receive this recognition.”
