Tenable is a full-service product, but it still has a lot of improvements to make, so I'd recommend exploring other products before implementing it. I would give Vulnerability Management a rating of nine out of ten.

For future users of, I would recommend using a layered approach. has an open API. So, it can be integrated with SIEM solutions. You can look at integrating it with privileged access management or any SIEM solution so that you've got all the data being pumped into a centralized location, and you are able to read the data alongside other security events coming from the SIEM and privileged access management solutions. Companies that are currently using can definitely start looking at integrating some of their security solutions for a much more robust security approach. I would rate it a solid eight out of ten.

I would recommend this solution at this time, but after installing it for more customers, my answer might change in the future. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

We're a partner for Tenable Nessus. The is what we're using currently. It suits our needs best due to the fact that it's in the cloud. The API is okay. It's not wonderful. Seems to serve a purpose. The biggest problem with the solution is that if you're a small company, you're not going to be able to afford it, nor are you going to be able to manage it. I would recommend other organizations use the product. People probably don't consider the amount of, let's say, understanding or comprehension that they need of their own network to truly be able to deploy and manage and get the results they're looking for, however. Many often underestimate all their skillsets. Tenable has a number of features and functionalities and it can be a little confusing for, let's say, a non-security savvy person. It could be a little bit of a challenge, to be honest. I'd suggest any company that considers it also does their homework first. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten. It gets the job done. It really is smooth to operate once it's set up. It is for the most part pretty easy to set and forget.

We are a reseller. We work with a lot of different products. My only recommendation to other companies would be to put up a plan and follow the plan, point by point. Keep tracking of the result and make adjustments, if necessary. It's important to go in with a bit of a roadmap to follow. It will help ensure results. In general, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We've been pretty happy with the solution overall.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this product is to have all of the requirements documented and ready in advance. You match the solution to your requirements. Out of the box, we found that matched almost all of our requirements. The only clarification that we needed had to do with the Web App license. We have a good understanding of how works with containers and infrastructure, but when it comes to deep driving into applications, databases, APIs, and toolkits that you have in your environment, you need a separate license for that. This is what the Web Application license is. In order to enjoy the maximum value, you need to have the appropriate licensing. Overall, I am quite happy with I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Tenable Nessus is a vulnerability assessment solution that is both easy to deploy and easy to manage. The design of the program is such that if a company should desire to handle the installation themselves, they would be able to do so. The updates that the program requires to keep up-to-date take up a large portion of the setup time. Tenable Nessus can be deployed in under an hour. The speed of an organization’s internet can impact how quickly the deployment will go. Furthermore, once it has been set up, only a small management team is necessary for maintenance. Tenable Nessus is an incredibly important program that provides businesses and organizations with robust protection. This ease of deployment and management gives it an edge over the competition. Vulnerability Management is basically comparable to Tenable Nessus in regards to setup and management. It is relatively straightforward to set up. A single person could deploy it in a non-business setting in a matter of hours. The setup can be handled without requiring a business to rely on the help of outside consultants. As with Tenable Nessus, a small team of two or three people is all that is necessary to manage the solution. Organizations can save a great deal of time and resources by choosing to utilize this solution. Tenable Nessus is a solution with good scalability. This can be accomplished with relative ease. However, the load that it can handle makes it a poor fit for larger organizations. At a certain point, the farther up you scale it, the more the solution quality diminishes. Vulnerability Management is able to offer a much higher level of scalability. It is typically used without trouble by organizations with many thousands of users. As with Tenable Nessus, the process is relatively simple. Conclusion: The actual difference in time and ease as far as deploying Tenable Nessus versus Vulnerability Management is negligible and cannot truly set one apart from the other. Ease of management is another area where these two solutions are very similar. A major difference between them is their scalability. While both can be scaled relatively easily, Vulnerability Management is able to handle a higher level of scalability, with the diminishment of quality being a far lesser concern than is the case with Tenable Nessus.

Both, but I prefer Nessus Pro (costs and you can define out-of-band your better presentation/xLAP platform). has its facilities and extra plugins/views/analytics, but nothing that can't be externally performed by another ETL/presentation tool (for a fraction of cost, sometimes using free toolings like Pentaho, OpenRefine, OBIEE and others).
