Tenable.sc [(formerly SecurityCenter)] is being used for our vulnerability management program across the whole organization. It identifies weaknesses in our infrastructure that need addressed.
  • Identifies vulnerabilities
  • Measures CIS Compliance
  • Vast majority of reporting capabilities
  • Big Learning Curve
  • Unable to do AWS or other cloud scanning
[Tenable.sc (formerly SecurityCenter)] does very well for internal scanning for vulnerabilities, however it needs to be combined with Tenable.io in order to do cloud scanning.

Tenable.sc provides the complete vulnerability information in my infra. Its best vulnerability management tool to be installed on-premises which can scan the entire infra and give the consolidated reports on the loopholes in infra so that we can patch those. It's so easy to install and GUI is user-friendly.
  • On-premises solution
  • Customized reports based upon standard industry regularities.
  • Continuous asset discovery
  • Passive scanning
  • Centralized vulnerability management with sensors.
  • Network health assessment and Incident response.
  • For alerting or notification, it should also support the SMS gateway.
Tenable.sc is best suited for those organizations who are not very comfortable with Cloud and want an on-premises solution. If any organization has to follow some guidelines that no data should go to the cloud, in this case, Tenable.sc is a perfect fit as it's installed in the infra Datacenter and no data goes to Cloud. Tenable.sc won't be appropriate for those who have their infra setup on cloud.
Upgrade was so smooth and it was completed within the defined downtime period and we didn't face any unexpected issues. Thanks to Tenable.sc for providing the so useful upgrade procedure documentation.

I use Tenable.sc as the main vulnerability scanner on the system. All the user computers and network-connected computers are connected to the system. We implemented distributed architecture by using Tenable.sc and Nessus together. Tenable.sc works as the central command unit while Nessus controls and collects scanning results from Nessus agents. Distributed system allows you to see and manage all vulnerabilities from one place while it discovers new assets on the network. Therefore, Tenable.sc gives us maximum endpoint visibility and manages them easily. In addition to that, its user group privileges feature is perfect for big organizations with various teams like ours. We can assign the vulnerabilities to the related team to fix problems. Setting up and configuring the architecture is easy and the support team is very helpful on this.
  • Vulnerability management from one place
  • Maximum endpoint visibility
  • Easy to set up and plan the structure
  • Support desk quickly responses
  • Well-prepared documentation
  • Broad scanning type
  • Supports various compliance standards
  • User groups allows coordination between teams
  • Tagging and naming all the endpoints takes time
When you have an important infrastructure with a network that consists of lots of devices, the vulnerabilities of each one of them become harder. Therefore, Tenable offers a real solution on managing vulnerabilities and maximizing endpoint visibility on the network. Its compliance check scanning is also significant when you are an organization that is externally audited. It is easy to install on all your devices with a small script. Later, Tenable.sc takes care of the agents to keep them updated, control their status, command them to scan, collect the results.
Tenable.sc is a well-documented tool for vulnerability scanning. Almost every question has an answer on the Tenable website. Most of the scenarios and solutions for problems are clearly explained on the website. Instructions for setting up, fixing the problems are obvious.

The Tenable support desk is also very quick and helpful. The ticket system is well managed, they answered my questions in seconds.

Tenable.SC is used by my division of the university to assist in maintaining PCI DSS, NIST SP 800:171, FERPA and HIPAA compliance. By collecting and correlating our log data and connecting the data found in scans and network traffic, we are able to have a better view of the security of our data and systems.
  • Correlating log data to security scans.
  • Active and passive scanning.
  • Data reporting.
  • Easier API access to data.
  • GUI to develop normalization rules (as opposed to scripting in the shell).
It is a matter of scale more than anything. Our Tenable.SC implementation works because of the size of our environment. Rolling all of its tools into once license and package makes it easy to connect and work with our data.
On all of the occasions that I have had to reach out to Tenable for assistance, they have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Solutions and support are provided quickly, and they work on the issue until it is resolved.

Tenable is our current vulnerability management solution. It is currently used by the IT department, but it is scanning our entire environment. With Tenable we resolved our visibility issues where we did not have a good idea of all devices in our environment. We are also getting a good picture of all vulnerabilities and required patches on all server, network devices, and laptops.
  • Reporting.
  • Dashboards.
  • It gives you control of your environment.
  • Tenable could make it easier to report on missing reg key.
  • Tenable can also make it easier to report on os level patches vs application patches.
Tenable is well suited in environments where upper-level management is heavily involved and interested in vulnerability management. As it has exceptionally easy to read and understand reports and dashboards for execs to digest and read.
I believe Tenable can improve overall when it comes to supporting. The current method requires a login and submission of a ticket with some online chat support as well. Though the online chat feature is really helpful the option of submitting a ticket and waiting for a response can take some time. I have witnessed very long wait times and a lot of back and forth via email to get a certain issue resolved.

Tenable products are being used all across the organization for vulnerability management. This is the heart of our vulnerability and exception management process and we rely on Tenable products for providing accurate data of the vulnerabilities currently present in our environment right from Windows/Linux servers to PCs to network devices to mobile devices.
  • Great plugin feed and is refreshed every day giving you the power to be ahead of those one-day attacks
  • Extremely simple to use UI with good filtering capabilities
  • Reporting is one thing in which Tenable has surpassed other vendors
  • Wide array of templates for reports and dashboards
  • No room for customization via API
  • Interaction with database is very limited
  • Agent Scan importing into SecurityCenter is not even close to stable
All in all if you want a full featured robust vulnerability management tool this is the right one for you. However, if you are someone looking to improve your current security posture from a VM perspective sadly this will not be the answer and you would wanna look beyond traditional vulnerability scanners such as this. For smaller organizations, this would serve well for endpoints, servers and mobile devices and giving you tailored reporting capabilities for the C-Suite executives.
