  • "I use a local license to perform penetration testing and I'm pretty happy with everything when it comes to pricing and licensing."
  • "Though reasonable, the main competitor of Tenable SC, Rapid7, offers a more aggressive and better priced product."
  • "It is a bit expensive. Everything is included in the license."
  • "The price of Tenable SC is expensive, we pay approximately €70,000 for the license annually. We have to pay for each IP test. The cost of other solutions is far less, such as Nessus Professional, which is €3,000 annually."
  • "Compared to other companies or other products it could maybe be a little bit less, but the price is okay. I would say it's not very expensive."

Hillstone’s Security Audit Platform collects and collates NAT, Threat, URL and Session logs and provides granular search capabilities that provide real-time visibility into network traffic.

    Tenable SC is an on-premises vulnerability management solution that offers complete visibility into the security measures of your complex IT infrastructure. Tenable SC also works by assessing risks and clearing vulnerability trends. By implementing Tenable SC, you can see all your vulnerabilities and continuously assess all assets the moment they join the network, including transient devices that aren’t regularly connected. In addition, Tenable SC can predict what matters by understanding vulnerabilities in the context of business risk, as well as the criticality of affected assets.

    • Pre-built dashboards and reports that are customizable
    • VPR (Vulnerability Priority Rating) to help identify and prioritize vulnerabilities

    • Alerts and notifications provided in real time that detect network irregularities
    • Automated scans, perimeter scanning, and vulnerability scanning
    • Risk prioritization, risk scoring, and risk reporting
