IT-Grundschutz Audits with Nessus and SecurityCenter

Use Tenable's pre-written IT-Grundschutz BSI audit files to help meet recommendations for Windows (available now) and Linux (coming soon) systems.

With Nessus and SecurityCenter, organizations can run IT-Grundschutz-based audits to identify and correct issues that may impact technical and infrastructual security, aiding in the application of trusted methodologies, operational practise, risk assessment, and risk analysis.

Other types of Nessus and SecurityCenter audits can also identify sensitive data that may be protected by IT-Grundschutz recommendations, such as credit card numbers and sensitive business information. Nessus and SecurityCenter can perform these searches without an agent and only require valid credentials to scan a remote computer.
