Tenable’s Unified Security Monitoring (USM) platform provides great flexibility in security and compliance monitoring of networks across multiple areas including system inventory, vulnerabilities, and corporate policy compliance. By monitoring system processes and network traffic, and correlating it with audit results of anti-virus configurations and malware scans, Tenable’s USM platform can identify a wide range of threats to an organization beyond vulnerability scanning.
Nessus and SecurityCenter can detect a wide variety of malicious software running on Windows and Apple systems. Nessus can leverage a credentialed scan to determine if currently running processes match known malware signatures. Combined with the Passive Vulnerability Scanner (PVS) and the Log Correlation Engine (LCE), Tenable’s USM platform can then help you identify and determine the extent of malware infections.
