Good reports that are easy to understand, straightforward to set up, and scales well


What is our primary use case?

We use Tenable Nessus when we are preparing our audit where we need to do an initial scan of our customers' platform to see if they have any critical issues.

What is most valuable?

The reports are pretty nice and easy to understand.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's a scalable product. We have approximately 300 companies.

I have yet to contact technical support. The users within my team are technical people, and if they have an issue, they can resolve it themselves using the knowledge base.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It is very easy.

It takes less than 10 minutes to install.

What about the implementation team?

I am the consultant.

We have a team of two to three to deploy and maintain this solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have a subscription, the licensing fees are paid yearly, and I am using the latest version.

The pricing is fine, but it could be cheaper.

What other advice do I have?

So far, I am quite pleased with this product and don't have any complaints. I would recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
