Scans using agents are very useful, and taking advantage of them is the best way to take advantage of the tool.

What do you think of Tenable Nessus?

Primarily, I use this for assessment and administration testing.

What is most valuable?

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

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

It is very stable, based on our past experience. We have had some false positives in the past, which we hope can improve in the future.

How has it helped my organization?

This is something that allows us to quickly get a really important information context. We can now deliver highly professional consulting using the product.

What needs improvement?

From my point of view, the solution basically is not for large enterprises. I also think there should be built-in plugins for the public cloud vendors.

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

My advice when choosing a vendor is to always consider: * Trustworthiness * Quality * Price

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We switched because our previous solution was too expensive for us.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Tenable, Qualys and Rapid7. We found Tenable was the best of all three.

Tenable Nessus has helped us visualize the security posture of acquisitions. It provides actionable recommendations to the implementation team towards security remedies.

What needs improvement?

* 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.
