Tenable Nessus Scanner Quickly Identifies Vulnerabilities
Tenable Nessus Scanner Quickly Identifies Vulnerabilities

With organization using a large number of networks, routers, firewalls, servers and business devices, the dataset is too large and inviting to attackers to not scan regularly. A missed vulnerability may leave you open to attack. A scanner that identifies invalid issues will waste your IT resources. The Tenable Nessus scanner quickly detects weaknesses and ensures that your organizational assets remain safe and secure.

Scanners will tell you the CVSS score, but you probably know that those scores often don’t reflect the actual danger. Kenna identifies the greatest threats to your environment by contextualizing your security vulnerabilities with active, in-the-wild Internet breaches, making your results from the Tenable Nessus scanner more valuable.
