5 Things You’re Not Doing With Your Vulnerability Scanner
September 4, 2014
Are you performing vulnerability scans on a semi-regular basis? Monthly? Quarterly? Given the current threats and IT landscape, this is not enough. Can your vulnerability scanner work harder to prevent security breaches? Tenable Network Security Solutions help simplify the identification of everything on your network, including cloud-based services, mobile devices, and malware that has crept in despite existing anti-virus solutions.
Tenable Network Security® solutions including Nessus, Nessus Enterprise and The Passive Vulnerability Scanner allow you to dig deeper into your environment and gain the ability to detect, assess, report and take action on different aspects of IT security, including:
- Virtualization Security (Configuration and patch auditing)
- Malware and Botnet Detection
- Mobile Device Scanning
- Patch Management
- Cloud Security
Vulnerability management extends beyond the IT security department, not only to include the technologies listed above, but also to engage others in your organization. Tenable’s products allow you to implement continuous monitoring through network scanning, credentialed patch audits, configuration auditing and passive vulnerability scanning (using PVS, the Passive Vulnerability Scanner). These technologies combined allow you to find vulnerabilities before the bad guys do, prevent breaches, respond to incidents with more information, and fill the gaps in your security program.
