Good reporting and integration, but it needs a user-friendly dashboard
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is the reporting, which provides a good level of detail with respect to vulnerabilities."
  • "It would be great if there were a dashboard that is more user-friendly."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use Tenable.io to scan all of our assets to identify vulnerabilities and determine risk percentages for each.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the reporting, which provides a good level of detail with respect to vulnerabilities.

This solution integrates well with other products.

What needs improvement?

It would be great if there were a dashboard that is more user-friendly.

We had some trouble integrating with ZeroNorth that required we contact technical support. This is an area that could be improved.

We are currently running several different scanners and it would be nice to see all of them in one place. For example, Tenable.io is used for assets, whereas we have different solutions for mobile and websites. Having all of these integrated into a single dashboard would be helpful.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Tenable.io for more than a year.

Find out what your peers are saying about Tenable Network Security, PortSwigger, Invicti and others in Application Security Tools. Updated: July 2022.
621,327 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In general, we do not have problems with stability. We did have an instance where the agents went down, but problems only occur once in a while.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is decent and has not been a problem. We have approximately 50 users.

If this solution continues to work well then we will gradually increase usage to cover all of our assets.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support is responsive and they worked on our problem quickly. That said, it depends on how quickly support is needed. The SLA is one or two days, although that depends on the agreement.

When we contacted support during the integration with ZeroNorth, our agents went down and it took a week to come up again. I think that the response and resolution time from technical support could be improved, which would lead to less downtime.

Overall, I would say that they are responsive.

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

The pricing is okay.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated several other products using a proof of concept for each. Tenable.io did well in comparison.

What other advice do I have?

For assets, this is a good product and I recommend it. We have done some other PoCs and in comparison, I think Tenable.io did well.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Multi-faceted solution that offers good replication testing and vulnerability assessment
Pros and Cons
  • "Our customers adopt this solution because of the replication testing and the vulnerability assessment it can do. It is a multi-faceted product."
  • "I would like for them to add proxy filtering, where you can transfer and alter the package. It is fully automated. Other web application testers programs are actually proxy software, and the proxy software gives you the flexibility of modifying the outgoing package, which will actually help you in exploiting any vulnerability in detail."

What is most valuable?

Our customers adopt this solution because of the replication testing and the vulnerability assessment it can do. It is a multi-faceted product. 

What needs improvement?

I would like for them to add intervening proxy, whereby you can alter the get/put requests. It is fully automated. Other web application testers programs are actually proxy software, and the proxy software gives you the flexibility of modifying the outgoing traffic packets which will actually help you in exploiting any vulnerability in detail.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable. We haven't had any bugs. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There is no need to scale, because generally the customers, whenever they scan their applications, they generally take a couple of applications at a time. And Tenable.io is already cloud instituted so you don't have to worry about that aspect.

How are customer service and technical support?

I never needed to contact support. It is very easy to understand and easy to configure. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten. 

To make it a ten, I would like for there to be more flexibility for the testers.
