Tenable.sc Frequently Asked Questions
Tenable.sc and Tenable.sc+ are Tenable’s on-premises vulnerability management solutions. Built on industry-leading Nessus technology, the Tenable.sc family of products identifies, investigates and prioritizes vulnerabilities, providing you with a risk-based view of your security and compliance posture. For more information on these solutions, please see the Tenable.sc Data Sheet and Tenable.sc+ Data Sheet.
Tenable.sc+ is a vulnerability management platform that builds off of the functionality in Tenable.sc and includes cyber risk metrics found in Tenable Lumin for an additional layer of context for your assets and vulnerabilities. These metrics provide a more tailored approach to your vulnerability management program, all calculated on your Tenable.sc+ instance, so your data remains on-premises.
Tenable.sc Director is an add-on to Tenable.sc. It provides enterprise customers with a unified view across their large and often dispersed network spanning multiple Tenable.sc consoles. Tenable.sc Director gives complete visibility and management of your instances so you can focus on vulnerability management and reduce overhead on administrative tasks.
Predictive Prioritization combines Tenable-collected vulnerability data with third-party vulnerability and threat data and analyzes them together with the advanced data science algorithm Tenable Research developed. Each vulnerability receives a Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR) that represents the likelihood an attacker may exploit a given vulnerability in the next 28 days along with its severity. You can use VPR to understand actual cyber risk of vulnerabilities in their unique environments so you can prioritize remediation efforts on vulnerabilities with the greatest impact.
Using a diverse array of sensors, Tenable.sc ensures continuous discovery and assessment of your network, assets and vulnerabilities in real-time.
Tenable.sc gathers security data from across your organization using sources such as:
- Passive monitoring: Monitoring network traffic and events in real-time provides information on which assets are connected to the internet and how they communicate. It identifies new or never-before-seen devices or applications, and detects suspicious behavior as it happens.
- Active scanning: Thoroughly analyzes asset state to identify vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, malware and other weaknesses.
- Host data: Actively monitor host activities and events, including insight into access and changes.
- Intelligent connectors: Leveraging your other security investments, Tenable.sc can integrate additional security data to improve context and analysis. Both will analyze information from a wide range of data sources including Active Directory (AD), configuration management databases (CMDBs), patch management systems, mobile device management (MDM) systems, cloud platforms and more.
- Agent scanning: Instantly audit transient or hard-to-scan assets that intermittently connect to the internet without credentials. Once installed, agents can run credentialed scans without ongoing host credentials.
Nessus Agents are lightweight programs installed locally on a host — a laptop, virtual system, desktop and/or server. Agents receive scanning instructions from a central Nessus Manager server, perform scans locally, and report vulnerability, compliance and system results back to the central server. Nessus Agents are available with Tenable.io and Tenable.sc.
Nessus Agents with Tenable.sc increase scan coverage and remove blind spots by making it easier to scan problematic assets such as those needing ongoing host credentials and offline assets. Agents also enable large-scale concurrent scanning with little network impact.

Tenable.sc provides extremely flexible reporting capabilities, utilizing more than 350 pre-built templates and a user-friendly report creation interface to easily create customized reports. The HTML5-based reports consolidate data from across your organization so you can measure and analyze your security effectiveness. Working from existing templates, you can completely customize data by deleting or adding certain components or adjusting filters to develop reports to meet your various needs.
You can develop multiple reports, each customized to provide a different view of collected data so you can deliver informative and timely reports to the appropriate teams or decision-makers within your organization. Reports can range from extremely detail-oriented to high-level summaries. Reports are available in standard PDF and CSV formats. You can schedule and automatically email reports, share to one or more specified console users and/or publish to one or more sites upon completion.
