1. Tenable Nessus is always up-to-date with the vulnerabilities database which scans for all the latest vulnerabilities.

3. It solves the implementation in 2 ways - agent-based and credentials-based.
4. It provides an interactive and nice GUI as well along with easy integration with other tools.

It cannot pull asset tags itself. We need to set up a whole different automation to ingest custom asset tags into Tenable nessus.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
It is solving a great organizational problem of vulnerabilities on the hosts and applications on it by reducing the attack surface for the attacker with scheduled scans, custom scan template and extensive vulnerability database.

Nessus Security Platform - Vulnerability Management

  • January 01, 2022
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Nessus is one of the most straightforward tools available to handle VMS operations.
Low budget enterprise tool which every organization can afford.
Nessus VA scan covers all standard network devices like endpoint, servers, network devices, virtualization platforms as well as a cloud environment.
They provide plugins for every vulnerability and can scan with authenticated or unauthenticated scans. It is straightforward to use, generates an excellent report (various options available to customize).
What do you dislike about the product?
If you compare Nessus to other VM tools like Nexpose or Qualys, Nessus has minimal features, and customization & Integration in Nessus is also not very helpful for organizations, where they need to customize their data set per their requirements.
Vulnerability fingerprinting also needs some enhancement. For some devices like Cisco, it flagged the exposure based on the iOS version running on the target machine but not based on the vulnerable configuration present on the device. Which further needs manual assessment to validate if the fingerprinted vulnerability is false positive or not.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Frequent and constant product updates.
Easy to use, configurations are not overly complex.
Reasonable price compared to other players.

Nessus - The VA Scanner

  • August 14, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
Nessus is a very user-friendly application, and it even has pre-defined templates to select which profile to be used for vulnerability scanning.
What do you dislike about the product?
When it scans very large data sets and applications, it takes a considerable time and becomes a bit laggy.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
A very common burden that System Admins have is patch management. Nessus helps to address this issue very smoothly with automated scans and reports
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are trying to keep your organization consistently compliant, this is a must-have tool.
