Tenable SecurityCenter Pros and Cons

Tenable SecurityCenter Pros

What is useful to me is being able to fulfill very customized scanning policies. In the clinical environment, because of vendor control, we can't perform credential-vulnerability scanning. And network scans, which I've done before, can cause a lot of impact. Being able to create very customized policies to be able to routinely scan and audit our clinical networks, while simultaneously not causing impact, is important to us.

One of the most valuable features is their distributed scan model for allotting engines to work together as a pool and handle multiple scans at once, across multiple environments. Automatic scanning distribution is a distinguishing feature of their toolset.

We really love the Security Center dashboard. It basically performs vulnerability scanning and then outputs a vulnerability data.

The most valuable feature of the product is the Assurance Report Card, which gives us an overview of the security poster in just a simple glance.
Initial setup was pretty straightforward.
It basically reviews our threat landscape vulnerability.

I think that this is a good solution for evaluating vulnerability in the network.

Tenable SecurityCenter Cons

If I want to have a very low-managed scan policy, it's a lot of work to create something which is very basic. If I use a tool like Nmap, all I have to do is download it, install it, type in the command, and it's good to go. In Security Center, I have to go through a lot of work to create a policy that's very basic.

It's good at creating information, it's good creating dashboards, it's good at creating reports, but if you want to take that reporting metadata and put it into another tool, that is a little bit lacking.

A good plugin editor would be a good additional option for the Security Center.

In terms of configuration, there is some level of flexibility that we are not able to achieve.
At times we have had the typical bugs.

The web application scanning area can be improved.

The vulnerability scan does not work correctly until the access privileges are set by the system administrator.
