I like its ease of use. It has the script that is pre-built in it, and you just got to know which ones you're looking for.

Scanners and reports using CIS templates ("de-facto" standard, easy to fix and to locate correction tips in the documentation), tests against cloud providers, database profiles, several types of telecom devices, and other highly customizable scans. You can scale your environment to gradually increase the quality, depth, and quantity of the tests, enabling you to learn and gradually optimize your vulnerability management platform(s)/instance(s). The possibility of integration with other market tools (Kenna, Archer...) is another differential.

VP - Risks, Audits & InfoSec at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees

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.

A valuable feature of the solution is that it is easy to understand. When it comes to running a scan, the scanning mechanism is also easy, and it is quite fast compared to Veracode and Qualys.

Cybersecurity Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees

The valuable feature for me is being able to ping the computers to do the automated scan and to come back and be able to see everything. That's definitely a huge plus, but then there's also the ease of reviewing the scores, identifying vulnerabilities, and getting the information on the vulnerabilities; the ability to review all that within one tool has been phenomenal. When we're reviewing those Nessus scores, the solution works well.

Out of the box, the product works well for us, so it's not a tool that we need to customize very much.

Founder & CEO at a tech services company with 1-10 employees

I have chosen Nessus because it's very simple to use and install. Depending on the number of assets you scan, Nessus is also an affordable solution. Products such as Tenable IO and RapidLab, can become expensive depending on the number of IPs. So Nessus Pro is perfect for my needs right now.
