Out of the box, pre-configured templates are included for a range of IT and mobile assets - from configuration audits to patch management effectiveness - to help you quickly understand where you have vulnerabilities. Nessus includes more than 450 compliance and configuration templates to audit configuration compliance against CIS benchmarks and other best practices.

Easily create reports based on customized views, including specific vulnerability types, vulnerabilities by a host or by the plugin. Create reports in a variety of formats (HTML, CSV and .nessus XML) and easily customize reports by team or client which can be emailed with every scan.

Live Results automatically performs an offline vulnerability assessment with every plugin update, showing you where you may have vulnerabilities based on your scan history. From here you can easily run a scan to validate the presence of the vulnerability which accelerates the accurate detection and prioritization of issues.

Similar issues or categories of vulnerabilities are grouped together and presented in one thread, simplifying the time to research and prioritize issues for remediation. Snoozing lets you select specific issues to disappear from view for a specified period of time. So you only focus on the issues that matter at that time.

“Nessus is essential to our security. We’ve had a situation where we realized that one of our devices was unsecured and Nessus successfully identified the threat. Nessus also helped us identify other unsecured devices in our network which dramatically improved our security.

“Each day things are becoming more and more digital. This means that we have to actively think about data integrity and confidentiality. Tenable limits the cyber exposure which makes it less likely to have security incidents and data integrity issues.
