I find the features that are most valuable are the policies that help us identify the vulnerabilities. These policies are then used for scanning instabilities and then identifying the particular vulnerabilities.

Tenable Nessus Cons

Thomas Kung
Senior Consultant at a tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
This is still a maturing product. Tenable is only a scanner for one ability, while other solutions like Rapid7 have more tools for verification. We still have to manually verify to see if the vulnerability is a false positive or not.

We have had some false positives in the past, which we hope can improve in the future.

They should improve the I/O reporting and the customized spreadsheet export feature.
Multiple steps to create an actionable plan will be a great addition to Nessus.
