Beyond Vulnerability Management — Strategies for Tenable Nessus Scanner
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.
Make Your Scan Data Manageable
Upload an XML file from the Tenable Nessus scanner, or synchronize your data in just a few minutes using our RESTful API. Kenna aggregates your vulnerability data so that your entire organization—from security practitioners to non-technical executives—can track your progress along the way.
Put Your Vulnerabilities in Context
You can’t fix all of your vulnerabilities, so focus on those that will have the greatest impact. Kenna contextualizes real-time threat information from eight threat intelligence sources with vulnerability data from sources like the Tenable Nessus scanner to point you towards the vulnerabilities actually being exploited. Save massive amounts of time in your vulnerability management process as a result.
Measure & Report on Risk
With every organization—from midsize to enterprise—at risk of a breach, it’s important to understand how risk is trending. Track the progress of your remediation, identify areas of improvement, and locate critical information around your exposure to specific threats. When everyone has access to the same view of your organization’s risk, communicating and understanding your risk posture is simple.
Know Your Real-Time Exposure
Blind spots may prevent you from understanding your risk exposure but Kenna offers a clear view. Learn which assets have weaknesses and which threats are significant, and discover your true risk of a breach. Have confidence in your remediation, and stop making guesses.
THE BOTTOM LINE
What Kenna brings to Tenable Nessus scanner results is automated threat intelligence with less resources. Stop parsing through scan results and creating reports and start contextualizing your results with threat intelligence
Kenna isn’t a vulnerability scanning solution, nor is it a threat intelligence provider, but we bring these two together with a patented technology that helps our users double their efficiency and productivity.
