Tenable SecurityCenter Initial Setup

As for the initial setup, that would be a tech question. The only thing I've set up is the Passive Vulnerability Scanner. That was pretty straightforward. When I got to the point of setting it up with Security Center, it took my colleague and me under an hour. That was just our first one. It's pretty straightforward once you know how to do it. We have an enterprise issue, so for us to be able to capture all that is needed from the clinical side, we would have to have deployed it at every site. It's because there is a lot of Layer 2 traffic. Since we have Security Center centralized, traffic will route out. Since we have networks at the sites that don't route out, we can't scan that traffic remotely. The idea is to have one at each site but, because of the standards in our organization at this time, we can't do that. View full review »

Setup is easy as long as you have the right hardware requirements. The deployment took about a week. We used two network guys, two system admins, one application admin, and two security admins to implement the solution. The longer process was on the hardening part of the components of the servers. We had to install everything on servers, all the dependencies, all of the software that Tenable needs, including the Security Center itself, and then once everything is installed, meaning everything is locked down, no other software is needed to be added to it. We performed a patch check and configuration checks on it to see they have met our standards. After that, we requested the connectivity performance from our firewall team and performed discovery across our network, if it will be able to see all the systems or all the IPs or all the networks that we have in our network. That would be one of the long processes that we took since there were a lot of different network segments that each engine or each Tenable component will pass through. We had to look for each one, just to make sure that we have the full coverage of our network. View full review »

The initial setup, including the GUI, is very straightforward. The implementation took about three months, and then the maturation took about six months. We have about two people for maintenance. View full review »
