Overall Satisfaction with Tenable.sc (formerly SecurityCenter)

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).
  • An affordable solution.
  • Savings on additional Nessus licenses.
  • A decrease in the staff time needed to analyze raw 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.
