Tenable SC Primary Use Case

Sr. Principal IT Architect at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
Our primary use case is compliance for our audits, for our customers. We were exposed in that we were not meeting contractual obligations. We are monitoring our infrastructure: servers, switches, storage, routers, SAN storage, operating systems, and applications to the extent that the tool is able to see into them. We use it to hit the high ones like Adobe or Microsoft Office and the like. Some of the more niche products that we use may not be in their inventory of vulnerabilities. View full review »
Joey Smith
Medical Device Cybersecurity Analyst at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
I'm the one who scans and performs assessments on clinical and medical equipment in our environment. I manage the clinical endpoint devices: MRI systems, bedside monitoring, Alaris pumps, fusion pumps, CTUs, EEGs, EKGs, wireless defibrillators, and a lot of IP cameras that are part of operation room labs. My colleague handles all the regular enterprise IT, database servers, etc. From a scanning standpoint, I do everything from discovery scanning to full-credential auditing and anything and everything in between. That's just for the medical space in a 24/7 production medical environment. We're also using a bit of the Passive Vulnerability Scanner and, eventually, I want to get to using the agents, but we haven't gotten to that stage yet. View full review »

IT Security Specialist at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
Vulnerability assessment and compliance auditing are our primary use cases. That includes baseline configuration scanning. We use it to protect everything in the enterprise environment: servers, workstations, pretty much all operating systems, networking gear. We are doing cloud and we are doing some IOT. We are not using their web application scanning tool. View full review »

CIO / IT Consultant at RedShift
We are a reseller and Tenable SC is one of the products that we implement for our clients. The primary use case is to check for compliance against a specific framework, like NIST, CIS, or something similar. Tenable will check compliance on the assets against that specific framework and give that visibility to the technical staff, top management, and the risk management team. In turn, this will enable them to evaluate the risk that they are facing for non-compliance issues. The second use case is helping the technical staff that handles updates and upgrades to the operating system. It means that they have the most urgent upgrades that they need to cover the high-risk vulnerabilities that can be found and exploited. Beyond this, Tenable SC assists with malware detection and similar functionality. View full review »

Abill Nerry
Senior Manager, IT Security at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
Basically it reviews our threat landscape vulnerability. So, we just want to be sure that we check compliance in terms of our configuration and compliance to our policies. But, the key is to make sure that we are not exposed to vulnerabilities that can be exploited. So, it's more of just securing our threat landscape. View full review »

Manoj Nair
Tech Specialist at Select Softwares
I use this solution to perform vulnerability assessments and then patch my systems using third-party tools. The vulnerability scan is pretty fast and once you give it the right access privileges on the target system, you get very clear and precise details of the vulnerabilities. View full review »
