Tenable SC Review

Has good scans and good stability

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for vulnerability assessment of our internal network.

What is most valuable?

The scans are the most valuable aspect of this solution. The reporting isn't so good but I use scans the most. The reporting needs a lot of work on the template. 

What needs improvement?

There should be an easier way to build your own type of reports because the data is there but it is quite painful to get what I want from it. I prefer Tenable SC to other solutions.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Tenable SC for a little more than two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability and scalability are good. The administrators use it. We have three regular users. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We have contacted their customer support and they were fine.

How was the initial setup?

We didn't have any issues with the initial setup. 

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

We pay around 60,000 on a yearly basis. 

What other advice do I have?

Nessus is for a single company and tenable SC is for when you've got multiple repositories. SC is the same as Nessus, except it's got central logging. It's the same thing. For large widespread companies, you use SC, if you're a small to medium-sized company, you use Nessus.

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because of the reporting. It needs improvement. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
