How has it helped my organization?

With the combination of the vulnerability management database and third-party integration, vulnerability management is very rich. When you add the network model, Skybox can tell you exactly which vulnerabilities in the infrastructure are… more»

What needs improvement?

The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich. It tells you the best part, and it gives you the alternate routes that are available based on the configuration and the routing table, but it doesn't give you… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this product is to make sure that they utilize it. The usage of it should be mandated for the NOC and SOC. They should use a single dashboard to take care of all of your infrastructure components… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have been evaluating other options including RedSeal, AlgoSec, Tufin, and FireMon. Each vendor has its own strengths and weaknesses. I think that the network modeling capability in RedSeal is far ahead of the rest. Also, in terms of… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It easily detects issues, and alarms the site.

What needs improvement?

In terms of the configuration of the reports, there's some level of flexibility that we are not able to achieve. In terms of configuring the reports to achieve certain percentages and all of that. So… more»

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

It is slightly more expensive than other solutions in the same sphere.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I considered Rapid7 Nexpose and Metasploit in the past.

What other advice do I have?

If you are considering a product like this, you must take into account and properly plan, scope, and scan. You need to know how to properly place your scanners and how to schedule automatic scans. You… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for me is container scanning because I am interested in CICD security. The standard infrastructure scanning is pretty robust, which is why I was focusing on containers.

What needs improvement?

We had some challenges with the implementation because of Docker Version 2, although with help from the support team, we were able to proceed. It would be helpful if Tenable could be more clear with regard to everything the solution can and… more»

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

I think that the price is reasonable for now, although given that everybody is looking to cut costs, I think that they should take measures to lower it. There are additional features that can be licensed for an additional cost.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have worked with the open-source solution OpenVAS, as well as with Rapid7 and Qualys. I can see that Tenable.io is going to be one of the big players because they are doing very well in this space.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to have all of the requirements documented and ready in advance. You match the solution to your requirements. Out of the box, we found that Tenable.io matched almost all of our… more»
