What’s New in Nessus
UI 2.0 and Suspicious Process Detection
Policy Creation Wizards
New wizards prompt for the information needed to quickly and easily find specific vulnerabilities in select systems and applications. This helps users, especially those less experienced with Nessus, quickly configure accurate and complete scans.
The new user interface makes it simple to find and filter vulnerability scan results, quickly see the status of running scans, and easily manage large amounts of scan data. The UI’s responsive design scales to fit the screen size of any device.
Suspicious Process Detection
Nessus now allows users to identify the reputation of running Windows processes, detecting both “known good” and unknown processes. Users can configure Nessus to detect a suspicious process as malware.
