PVS Provides Full Visibility Continuously
The Tenable Passive Vulnerability Scanner™ (PVS™) monitors network traffic at the packet layer to determine topology and identify services, security vulnerabilities, suspicious network relationships, and compliance violations.
Passive Vulnerability Scanner provides visibility into both server and client-side vulnerabilities, discovers the use of common protocols and services (e.g., HTTP, SQL, file sharing), and performs full asset discovery for both IPv4 and IPv6, and even on hybrid networks.
PVS 4.0 is now available with an integrated interface to provide unparalleled point monitoring for highly-sensitive networks or network segments. With this new PVS format, it can be used by any company, security specialist, or compliance auditor that wants to monitor their networks in real-time, in a non-intrusive manner.
