March 29, 2006

Columbia, MD

Tenable is pleased to announce the availability of Nessus 3.0.2 (beta) for Mac OS X 10.4. Nessus for Mac OS X is not just a port of the UNIX server to the Mac environment, it also bundles a native interface to manage the server and the client.

  • Session-based: A 'session' is a set of targets, policies and results. A session may contain multiple scan results ;
  • File-based: Each session is stored as a unique file on disk. This file can then be easily moved around to another host by email, ftp, etc... ;
  • Multiple scans in parallel: You can create multiple sessions in parallel (File->New) and each session can perform a scan;
  • Real-time results: The results can be viewed and worked on in real time
