As part of the Nessus family, Nessus® Essentials (formerly Nessus Home) allows you to scan your environment (up to 16 IP addresses per scanner) with the same high-speed, in-depth assessments and agentless scanning convenience that Nessus subscribers enjoy. Nessus Essentials eliminates the previous restriction on only using Nessus Home for personal, non-commercial use.
Please note that Nessus Essentials does not allow you to perform compliance checks or content audits, Live Results or use the Nessus virtual appliance. If you require these additional features, please purchase a Nessus Professional subscription.
