Tenable SecurityCenter Scalability

When you throw in the Passive Vulnerability Scanner, just being able to spit out more hardware if we need it, it seems like it scales well, at least with respect to our environment. When we first had it, we only had a handful of servers powering it and scans took forever. I don't know how many servers we have on the back end powering it now, but it's a lot faster. We've added to it to give it more juice. That's been pretty easy and straightforward as well. View full review »

As long as you can buy the license, you can easily add up until you need an additional scan engine. View full review »

I did not have any issues with scalability. This is because once you scope the main control, the Security Center box, you do proper saving on the main box in terms of storage. Initially, when we did the first installation, we did not properly size our storage. So, we quickly entered issues. But, since it was Linux box, we were able to reconfigure and make development for additional storage. Once we did that, there has not been anything that tested the scalability. So, when the growth becomes a little high, we just add a box and provide a scanner. Then, you define the territory within which you can scan, because each scanner can be assigned to a given territory in terms of sub-nets, and so on. View full review »

It's easily scalable. If you are required to scan more assets then you just request for it to be expanded, such as from two thousand to five thousand. Scalability is not an issue. The system is used by around thirty-five users including system admins, who ensure that the system is up, and the application admins who are responsible for fixing the issues that are picked up with the solution. We use it across our entire network so we cannot expand its use any further. View full review »
