The API is pretty good.

The solution works well for enterprise-level organizations.

They're a standup product. They really are. They're one of the first in the industry which means they're a quite well-established site. It's pretty hard to improve upon. 

The initial setup is pretty straightforward.

They are on a good trajectory as a company and investing in R&D in the right ways.

Tenable.io, in particular, is quite a powerful product. It looks at your traditional environment, which is pretty much anything that is on-premises, and it also goes a step ahead and covers your modern assets, which is anything that is currently sitting in the cloud. You get complete visibility of your entire environment and tech operation. The ability to give you visibility across the entire tech surface is one of the biggest advantages that Tenable.io has.

The use of agents comes in very handy when a lot of the workforce is working from home, such as during COVID-19. Some of the traditional tools would not be able to monitor any of those devices that people would be working with, such as laptops, because they are remote. You can only audit their machines if they are on the business premises, but with Tenable.io agents, you can maintain that level of continuous monitoring, even if they are not on-premises at the time of the scan. The agents run the scans locally on the machine.

Tenable.io is a cloud-managed solution, but the scanners are sitting on-premises. They've also got some public cloud scanners that are sitting all over the world. They've got something called frictionless assessments, which is quite an interesting approach for vulnerability scanning of anything that is sitting in your AWS. You don't have to deploy the scanners. They've got sensors in there that are able to give you continuous monitoring without deploying scanners, doing any configurations, or inputting any credentials.
