Tenable Network Security Unveils Nessus 5.0 Vulnerability Scanner

2012-02-16

COLUMBIA, Md. ---- Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring (USM), today announced the availability of the Nessus® 5.0 vulnerability scanner, the most powerful and comprehensive vulnerability and configuration assessment solution for enterprises and security professionals.

Nessus 5.0 delivers top-line business benefits by introducing enhancements that streamline and optimize each of the major phases of the vulnerability and configuration assessment process. Specific benefits include:

Streamlined startup – New installation wizard and web interface ensure Nessus 5.0 is up-and-running, completely configured in minutes.

Rapid policy creation – More than two dozen new plugin filters make it fast and easy to create policies for targeted scans. Selecting multiple filter criteria, such as, vulnerability publication date, public vulnerability database ID, information assurance vulnerability alert (IAVA), and more, makes it simple to identify easily-exploitable vulnerabilities.

Industry-leading efficiency – Real-time scan results combined with on-the-fly filtering allow users to quickly see risk level and act upon vulnerability data without waiting for the scan to complete. One-click navigation makes it easy to jump from critical vulnerability to vulnerable host to the details of the vulnerability. Five severity levels quickly separate informational data from actionable results.

Fully customizable reports – Multiple filters, results management, and new pre-configured report formats allow users to produce targeted reports tailored to fit the needs/interests of executives, systems administrators, and auditors. Users can also combine multiple report templates into a single, comprehensive report, which can be delivered in a variety of formats, including PDF.

To see a live demonstration of Nessus 5.0, please stop by the Tenable Network Security booth at RSA Conference 2012 (booth #729).

“Tenable’s dynamic library of now nearly 50,000 individual vulnerability and configuration checks is updated continuously to ensure the accuracy and relevance of Nessus scans and audits. Our next-generation scanner continues to be recognized by security professionals, network penetration testing teams, and auditors as the de facto standard for vulnerability and configuration assessment.” said Ron Gula, CEO and CTO of Tenable Network Security. “Version 5.0 builds on the solid foundation Nessus has established for quality and accuracy, and now makes it easier and faster to install and use.”
