Nessus Virtual Appliance

Tenable Network Security has released a virtual appliance for the Nessus 3 vulnerability scanner. The VMWare appliance is available to ProfessionalFeed and Security Center customers.

The appliance image allows for rapid deployments and effortless management of Nessus 3 scanners in virtual environments. Users do not need to concern themselves with managing an operating system and can focus on managing their scanner configurations, operation and performance.

When installing the image for the first time, a console based user interface displays the IP addresses obtained by a DHCP lease as shown below:


Ipaddrs

A web based user interface can then be used to configure your Nessus scanner, provision users for use with the Nessus Client or Security Center, subscribe it to the ProfessionalFeed, view appliance logs, save/restore appliance configurations and much more. Below is a screen shot of the main configuration interface:

Downloads for this appliance image, along with documentation, are available on the Tenable Support Portal to existing ProfessionalFeed and Security Center customers. An unlimited number of virtual Nessus appliances can be provisioned for use with the Security Center. Stand-alone images require a ProfessionalFeed subscription to receive the latest Nessus plugins.
