Collects the vulnerabilities on the hostnames and sends them to the cloud

What is our primary use case?

I work for a security company, and I implement Tenable for our customers. I just implement this technology. I'm not working with the users. 

Our main use case is for implementing and starting scans for the whole company or a specific host. It is used for creating reports or dashboards for the vulnerabilities of the whole company. As a product for web application scanning, the results are uploaded to the cloud, and the management is on the cloud, but we can implement an on-premises scanner, or we can scan the on-premises web applications of our customers.

What is most valuable?

It collects the vulnerabilities on the hostnames and sends them to the Tenable.io cloud. Tenable has its own cloud where Tenable.io is running, but there are many connectors to other cloud solutions. Tenable can do vulnerability scanning for other cloud managers such as Azure, Amazon, and so on.

What needs improvement?

They have a general dashboard for web application scanning, but the dashboards and reporting can be improved. They probably have some features in their roadmap.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working for this company for two years and eight months, and I have had many opportunities to implement Tenable.

620,600 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a cloud solution. It has 100% reliability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Being a cloud solution, it must be scalable.

How are customer service and support?

In general, it is fast. In some cases, we need L3 support, which can take some time, but overall, it is really fast. As compared to other vendors who implemented such solutions, the support is fast.

How was the initial setup?

It is a complex solution. Tenable.io is an enterprise solution. So, it is not that easy to set up.

The deployment duration varies depending on the size of a company. It can take five days, and it can also take a month.

What about the implementation team?

We have our own team. The number of people required for its deployment varies, but we have been able to implement it for most of the projects with just three people.

For its maintenance, we have five or six people in support.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of 10.

User-friendly GUI, simple to manage, the support is excellent and quick to respond
Pros and Cons
  • "Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is very easy to use."
  • "The reporting has a very limited customization capability."

What is our primary use case?

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is very useful for scanning container exposure, and also for scanning all of the external IP addresses for any organization using Tenable predefined scanners.

What is most valuable?

It's a good product. It works as expected.

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is very easy to use.

It provides very reliable results.

It is very useful. 

The GUI is very easy to use, for anyone.

It is easily managed by someone who lacks prior knowledge, information, or experience.

What needs improvement?

The reporting in Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is not as good as the reporting in Tenable SC. Tenable SC's reporting is extremely powerful.

The reporting has a very limited customization capability. It would be beneficial if this feature could be enhanced.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Tenable.io Web Application Scanning for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is extremely stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Tenable.io Web Application Scanning is very easy to scale. 

The scalability surpasses Tenable.sc. All of the resources are based on the cloud. You don't need to add any extra resources if you want to add any external scanning or any internal scanners for the hardware specifications. This solution is very scalable.

How are customer service and support?

I have dealt with technical support once. They were very good and very responsive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also worked with Tenable SC. Asset management is a bit different.

How was the initial setup?

There is no need to install anything. You get it pre-installed from the vendor.

You have access to the GUI, and log in with your credentials.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It follows the same licensing scheme as Tenable.io and Tenable SC.

A separate license is required for support.

I can't be certain, but I believe the fees are determined by the number of IP addresses or users.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it.

I would rate Tenable.io Web Application Scanning an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
