They've been able to think about everything in terms of where the world is going and the type of assets that you've got. They've everything sorted out in that aspect, but you have to pay for most of the other components that they've got to give you complete visibility across your tech surface. If it already had those capabilities in-built, without having to add them on to take advantage of them, it would be a very compelling value proposition. Their support needs to be improved in terms of turnaround time.

The solution seems to focus too much on enterprises, and they really need a product that works for SMBs. The enterprise product is too expensive for smaller companies, however, they really are looking for a product like this in the market. It's too technologically advanced for SMBs - Tenable is kind of a little bit like flying a 747. There's a lot of bells and whistles and switches and things like that, that quite frankly are not used or not understood largely by the average user. If they don't begin to cater to smaller organizations, they'll likely lose market share. They could use a better user interface that could be developed a lot better than it is. It really could be more intuitive.

The pricing of the solution could be more reasonable.

An area of improvement for this solution is being able to customize the dashboard. For example, the dashboard does not allow us to view a previous months vulnerability results alongside current results to make comparisons.

We had some challenges with the implementation because of Docker Version 2, although with help from the support team, we were able to proceed. It would be helpful if Tenable could be more clear with regard to everything the solution can and cannot do with the particular license that you have. The information is not available on the web site and they should be more upfront about it.

I don't have any issues with the solution at this time, and I don't think there are any features that are missing or could be added. The interface could be improved; right now it's running on two interfaces simultaneously.

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).
