Nessus Use Cases

Additional Information

Nessus was the industry's first vulnerability assessment tool and it continues to lead the industry today in CVE coverage, detection accuracy and product adoption. Nessus identifies exposures caused by vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in traditional IT assets, but also extends that functionality to address the modern attack surface.

Nessus, Tenable.io, and Tenable.sc leverage the power of the Nessus scan engine, which can be configured to do far more than its common use cases.

This web page provides additional information on those use cases in the form of blog posts, web pages and videos so that end-users, consultants and MSSP providers can get a better understanding of these use cases in order to deliver additional services to organizations to improve their vulnerability and risk awareness.
