Overall Satisfaction with Nessus

Nessus is one of the best vulnerabilities assessment tools. We use it to evaluate, as one of our primary controls, to know how secure or insecure is our infrastructure (networks, servers, switches configurations) are and also identifying the different vulnerabilities in web applications we use. So with the help of the results (reports), we can explain to the managers and the technologies administrators the risks that exist in their software and hardware. For the company is very useful for the audit areas and security area. Those areas work together in the assessment and evaluation. We trust in the info and results gave by Nessus.
  • Vulnerabilities assessment.
  • Configuration file evaluation.
  • Reporting.
  • Interaction with some other tools like Metasploit.
  • Preventing attacks.
  • Saving the time of deep analysis.
  • Saves money.
Sometimes when we identify a vulnerability with Nessus that has an exploit, we made a proof of concept with Metasploit in order to show to the IT managers the importance of the software/hardware hardening.
We dont use the support.

When you want to know about how strong the hardening of your software is. Also, when installing a router, switch or another network device, Nessus helps you by indicating if the configuration has some vulnerabilities or maybe if it requires some other options to make a strong configuration and avoid attacks.
