Tenable Nessus Review

Has good vulnerability reporting and is stable and scalable

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is scanning of our external websites.

What is most valuable?

The feature I find most valuable is the vulnerability reporting.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an improvement in the ranking of high, medium and low vulnerability.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Tenable Nessus for six months now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Tenable Nessus is a very scalable solution. We have over 50 devices running on it currently, and over 50 locations. And we plan to increase our usage in the future. We use our existing team for maintenance, so we didn't have to increase our headcounts. One person is enough to do the maintenance.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good.

How was the initial setup?

I will say the initial setup was not straightforward, and not complex either. It's medium. Technically it's not too complicated, but if you work with a good partner, they can help. The deployment took us about three to six months.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be to include post-implementation support for six months from the vendor to help with the fine-tuning. I rate this solution an eight out of ten. In the future, I would like to see better reporting for high impact vulnerabilities.
