“We have been a big user of Nessus for vulnerability scanning and compliance for our clients here at Aplura,“ said Daniel Deighton, Partner at Aplura, a security consulting firm focused on Federal agency security and compliance needs. “This new on demand training course allows us to quickly ramp up our security consultants on Nessus capabilities on their own time, and has really expanded our vision on what we can offer our customers using Nessus. I’d highly recommend it to anyone using or considering Nessus.”
