Manage Patching Before Patching Manages You
Patching is an unavoidable fact of life for organizations that want to stay secure, and it is a never-ending task. Patching everything is impossible, so it’s important to identify everything on a given network, as this allows organizations to prioritize and make informed decisions on what gets patched and when.
With continuous network monitoring™, Tenable Network Security™ can help find 100% of the assets on a network and provide the information needed to make your patch management program successful.
Why Tenable for Patch Management?
Nessus® eases the pain of patch auditing by providing the largest library of checks for operating systems, applications, databases, networks and virtual infrastructure.
Automate the time-consuming comparison that security teams typically go through to verify patch status through our unique integration with leading patch managers, including Microsoft, IBM, VMware, Red Hat, and Dell KACE.
Nessus Manager enables users to share these results with systems administrators and co-workers who are responsible for patching and remediating systems, making auditing more efficient and freeing up time and resources.
SecurityCenter Continuous View
SecurityCenter Continuous View™, Tenable’s continuous network monitoring platform, provides a real-time view into the patch and compliance status of IT assets, and its unique sensors identify vulnerabilities at scale across your entire infrastructure. SecurityCenter Continuous View also enables you to test the effectiveness of your entire patch management program.
Organizations may have thousands of devices deployed across the network, many of which may not be connected during regularly scheduled scanning periods. Available in Nessus® Manager and Nessus Cloud, Nessus Agents allow users to scan those transient devices and report on the status of patches, configuration and malware to system administrators who can then prioritize which systems need to be patched and when.
