Very mature and quite stable but could use a better user interface

What is our primary use case?

Primarily we're a partner of Tenable and what we've done is we've essentially created a middleware. We created a middleware on top of Tenable.io engine, the API, and the middleware was developed back in 2003. It has gone through about three different iterations since then. Essentially, we simplify their user interface. It's been designed so that the managed service providers, the MSPs, are able to use the Tenable system with our interface on top. In a sense, what we've done is dramatically dummied down the Tenable interface through the use of our own GUI. We connect to the Tenable API in the… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "They are on a good trajectory as a company and investing in R&D in the right ways."
  • "The solution seems to focus too much on enterprises, and they really need a product that works for SMBs."

What other advice do I have?

We're a partner for Tenable Nessus. The Tenable.io is what we're using currently. It suits our needs best due to the fact that it's in the cloud. The API is okay. It's not wonderful. Seems to serve a purpose. The biggest problem with the solution is that if you're a small company, you're not going to be able to afford it, nor are you going to be able to manage it. I would recommend other organizations use the product. People probably don't consider the amount of, let's say, understanding or comprehension that they need of their own network to truly be able to deploy and manage and get the…

We're a partner. I'm not sure which version of the solution we're using. I'd recommend the solution to other companies. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten overall. We're mostly very happy with its capabilities.

Supports container scanning, and the technical support is good

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and I advise my clients from a security standpoint. My goal is to get them to maximize value from Tenable.io. I am also a user of it.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature for me is container scanning because I am interested in CICD security."
  • "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."

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 requirements. The only clarification that we needed had to do with the Tenable.io Web App license. We have a good understanding of how Tenable.io works with containers and infrastructure, but when it comes to deep driving into applications, databases, APIs, and toolkits that you have in your environment, you need a separate license for that. This is what the Web…

An easy initial setup with responsive technical support and good stability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for vulnerability scanning.

Pros and Cons

  • "The vulnerability scanning is the most important aspect of the solution for us."
  • "The pricing of the solution could be more reasonable."

What other advice do I have?

We are a reseller. We work with a lot of different Tenable.io products. My only recommendation to other companies would be to put up a plan and follow the plan, point by point. Keep tracking of the result and make adjustments, if necessary. It's important to go in with a bit of a roadmap to follow. It will help ensure results. In general, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We've been pretty happy with the solution overall.

The solution is very stable.
