  • Network sweeps
  • Network/host auditing (NIST, DoD, etc)
  • Vulnerability Scans
  • Bulky - does not scale easily
  • Lack of detailed error logs for scan issues
  • Lack of stripped client (piggybacking off the bulky) - could use a mini/portable client like nmap
SecurityCenter is definitely the juggernaut of the industry. You don't see many shops that are not using Nessus and or SecurityCenter. As a pen tester, I do not judge shops that use Nessus as a catch all, as there are a lot of things you can get hyper focused on and a tool like this helps you see things you may have missed.

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.
