Tenable Network Security has launched a new multi-scanner management capability which allows internal and external scanning from a single point in the Cloud.
The new Cloud management capabilities will be delivered to Nessus users in a March 3 update.
Departments, teams and remote locations will have, as part of their subscription, the ability to control internal and external scanners from a primary scanner.
Customers with Nessus Perimeter Service will also be able to do so through the Cloud.
The US Department of Defense is one of the company’s biggest clients.
Nessus is also introducing a new simplified view of scan findings, affected hosts, and compliance status with one-click drill-down for details.
Tenable Network Security chief executive, Ron Gula, said the introduction of the new multi-scanner management capability in Nessus allowed users to benefit from the robust capabilities of the “most widely-used vulnerability scanner in the world” - while saving time, effort, and resources by managing internal and external scanning from a single point in the cloud or on premise.
The new features include a Cloud management portal, multi-scanner support and a simplified scan results view.
Tenable chief research officer, Renaud Deraison, said the features in Nessus built on a year of important configuration, post-scan anlaysis, and usability improvements.
“Now teams, departments and organisations can maximise security to match their needs and available resources - whether through Tenable’s enterprise platform SecurityCenter or through these new Nessus features.”
