"The risk context of any vulnerability is a valuable feature."
"The trial version is very good for testing whether it will suit your needs."
"The solution is the most dynamic one I have seen thus far."
"The features of Tenable Nessus that I have found most valuable are its reliability and its ability to collate a dependable output, where we are able to get the same vulnerability when we test manually. The output is quite reliable."
"The most valuable features are that it's fast, it's easy to use and it provides good reports."
"The most valuable feature of Tenable Nessus is the self-updating engine."
"It is easy to deploy and easy to use. Its reporting is good. From this reporting, you can see the pain point in your network, which makes it easy to fix them. It is easy to understand the reports and export them."
"Tenable Nessus has a good performance, is very user-friendly, and is easy to use."
"Tenable Nessus is one of the best vulnerability assessment tools, that I know."
"An improvement would be some sort of an integration with any GRC suite."
"In terms of what could be improved, I would say its reporting portion."
"The inventory management function in this solution needs improvement."
"It wasn't very clear how the scripts are running the scans. There's information about the script but it's not straightforward. The script information for each of the plugins should be available, but it doesn't give us straightforward direct information about how it was executed. That needs to be more clear."
"The features are limited when it comes to scanning network devices for vulnerabilities."
"The report for counters is too simple and would be improved by a dashboard."
"The solution should be able to support more devices."
"Tenable Nessus application device assessment is one of the top tools. However, in the application security assessment, there are other tools that provide better, and more accurate findings."
"EQA's and dashboards should be addressed in the next release."
