Nessus, Nessus Enterprise and Nessus Enterprise Cloud users can now remotely scan UNIX and Linux systems for the presence of sensitive information such as credit/debit card numbers, SSNs, company confidential information, and more.
Nessus Enterprise is now available and allows you to add users (including LDAP support) and share resources such as reports, schedules, policies, and scanners. Nessus Enterprise is available in both on-premise and cloud versions and focuses on users, sharing, collaboration, and increased scalability.
