Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Technical support has been good. They respond quite quickly.""The most valuable feature for me is container scanning because I am interested in CICD security.""The solution can integrate with third parties and meets standard compliance.""The vulnerability scanning is the most important aspect of the solution for us.""The initial setup is very straightforward.""They are on a good trajectory as a company and investing in R&D in the right ways."

More Tenable.io Vulnerability Management Pros »

"I think that this is a good solution for evaluating vulnerability in the network.""What is useful to me is being able to fulfill very customized scanning policies. In the clinical environment, because of vendor control, we can't perform credential-vulnerability scanning. And network scans, which I've done before, can cause a lot of impact. Being able to create very customized policies to be able to routinely scan and audit our clinical networks, while simultaneously not causing impact, is important to us.""One of the most valuable features is their distributed scan model for allotting engines to work together as a pool and handle multiple scans at once, across multiple environments. Automatic scanning distribution is a distinguishing feature of their toolset.""This solution has a much lower rate of false positives compared to competing products.""The predictive prioritization features are pretty good. They do a lot of research and we trust the research that they do internally. They have knowledge of what's going on with many companies, where we only get a view into what's going on here. So the ability to get best practices out of them as part of this solution, is valuable to us.""Tenable also helps us to focus resources on the vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited. And since it is continuously updated, it allows us to reevaluate quickly if there are new vulnerabilities found...""The scans are the most valuable aspect of this solution.""This product has the best results in terms of the lowest number of false-positives and false-negatives."

Cons
"The interface could be improved; right now it's running on two interfaces simultaneously.""It would be helpful if Tenable could be more clear with regard to everything the solution can and cannot do with the particular license that you have.""An area of improvement for this solution is being able to customize the dashboard. For example, the dashboard does not allow us to view a previous months vulnerability results alongside current results to make comparisons.""The pricing of the solution could be more reasonable.""There needs to be better dashboard navigation.""The solution seems to focus too much on enterprises, and they really need a product that works for SMBs."

"The web application scanning area can be improved.""If I want to have a very low-managed scan policy, it's a lot of work to create something which is very basic. If I use a tool like Nmap, all I have to do is download it, install it, type in the command, and it's good to go. In Security Center, I have to go through a lot of work to create a policy that's very basic.""It's good at creating information, it's good creating dashboards, it's good at creating reports, but if you want to take that reporting metadata and put it into another tool, that is a little bit lacking.""The vulnerability scan does not work correctly until the access privileges are set by the system administrator.""There's a lot of information being streamed out of the reports. What would be nice, and maybe we just haven't found it, would be more of an executive-type view. We still expect it to collect all this information, but we would like a feature that would allow us to show it to an executive or a director or someone like that and give them some type of high-level overview but not get into the nitty-gritty.""The reporting needs a lot of work on the template.""The integration is very good, although it still needs to improve.""Current web page needs improvement, slows down processes."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There are additional features that can be licensed for an additional cost.""The solution is not too expensive."

More Tenable.io Vulnerability Management Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing costs for this solution are approximately $100,000 US, and I think that covers everything.""The pricing is more than Nexpose.""Costing is pretty reasonable compared to the competition.""We're a Fortune 500 company... our licensing costs [are] in the seven figures.""We pay around 60,000 on a yearly basis.""The price can start at €10,000 ($13,000 USD) for between 500 and 1,000 assets, and the price can climb into the millions as more assets are added.""I use a local license to perform penetration testing and I'm pretty happy with everything when it comes to pricing and licensing."
