We performed a comparison between Tenable.io Vulnerability Management and Tenable SC based on our users’ reviews in four categories. Our conclusion is presented below.
Comparison Results: Tenable SC comes out ahead when it comes to the user interface and product support. However, it is an on-prem solution only, while Tenable.io Vulnerability Management is available for both cloud or on-prem deployment and is noted as integrating well with third-party solutions.
"Out of all the features, the one item that has been most valuable is the fact that Wiz puts into context all the pieces that create an issue, and applies a particular risk evaluation that helps us prioritize when we need to address a misconfiguration, vulnerability, or any issue that would put our environment into risk."
"The initial setup is straightforward so long as your infrastructure, components, and networks are in place."
"The solution creates vulnerability tickets within the VM profile but should also include them under the Remediation tab so the fixes can be viewed in the ticketing queue."
"The solution can integrate with third parties and meets standard compliance."
"The initial setup is not complex."
"The ease of use in terms of scanning assets is valuable."
"There is no burden of updating or upgrading this solution."
"The vulnerability scanning is the most important aspect of the solution for us."
"The initial setup is mostly straightforward."
"The most valuable features of Tenable SC are the reports and the dashboards."
"Their overall cost of service is pretty good."
"The solution is very intuitive and the dashboards are simple to use."
"I found the dashboard features very useful. It made it easy to track remediation progress. I could publish dashboards to remediation teams and track the progress on the dashboards."
"We use Tenable to scan all of our environments and plugins for vulnerabilities. Tenable helps us discover network vulnerabilities to threats and piracy."
"The most valuable features of Tenable SC are scanning, reporting, dashboards, and automation."
"I find Tenable SC to be a very scalable product."
"Tenable's most valuable features are the credential scan, vulnerability reports, and vulnerability ratings (VPR)."
"We wish there were a way, beyond providing visibility and automated remediation, to wait on a given remediation, due to a critical aspect, such as the cost associated with a particular upgrade... We would like to see preventive controls that can be applied through Wiz to protect against vulnerabilities that we're not going to be able to remediate immediately."
"The solution seems to focus too much on enterprises, and they really need a product that works for SMBs."
"The pricing of the solution could be more reasonable."
"There needs to be better dashboard navigation."
"The one drawback that we have found is the reports."
"We'd like to see a bit more user-friendliness."
"The price could be lower."
"An area of improvement for this solution is being able to customize the dashboard. For example, the dashboard does not allow us to view a previous months vulnerability results alongside current results to make comparisons."
"It can have more integration."
"I think the vendor training provided for Tenable.sc could be a lower price. It's quite expensive for the training."
"The biggest issue I have with the solution is when I'm using the scanning it picks up the original DNS of that device. That means, before we image it and actually change the DNS to something within our company structure, it'll just be random numbers and letters and Tenable will stick to that DNS for a long time."
"The pricing is reasonable, but this could be brought down more aggressively, such as we see with Rapid7, Tenable SC's main competitor."
"The user interface can be improved."
"Its reporting can be improved. It is not easy to generate a scan report the way we want. The data is okay, but we can't easily change the template to make it look the way we want."
"Tenable's reporting engine needs improvement. It needs to be more efficient and add more features."
"The solution should include compliance-based scanning."
"Tenable SC could be improved with additional connectivity to external company postures and the capability of managing and sustaining agents in the systems directly without additional platforms in the middle."
