Overall Satisfaction with Tenable Unified Security

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
  • ROI from Tenable suite of products has been well worth its cost.
  • Their pricing model has changed and they charge higher than their competitors but for the usage we have currently it serves us well.
  • Customization might not be what was expected but I believe we are using the tool to the fullest.
Its competitors like Rapid7 and Qualys are really good substitutes and where they improve in other aspects such as scanning they lack in terms of reporting and filtering. It all boils down to your usage and if you need elaborate reporting capabilities and integrations and so on then Tenable is worth looking at else you can pick any of the three.
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.
