Tenable releases Nessus v6

By

If you do not know what Nessus is and you are a chief information or chief security officer – read on.

iTWire interviewed Tenable's Dick Bussiere, Principal Architect for Tenable Network Security in the Asia Pacific region, and was suitably impressed. It is not an anti-virus company but a continuous network monitoring.

Tenable  has announced a raft of new capabilities for Nessus v6 that allows customers to simplify and extend vulnerability management for cloud environments by reducing the cloud infrastructure attack surface.

The move to cloud computing can be accompanied by unexpected security challenges separate from the traditional vulnerability management hurdles of securing transient devices and managing credentials. Traditional vulnerability management programs are also limited by the lack of security expertise in the cloud and by solutions that do not support cloud environments.

The latest version of Nessus Cloud or Nessus Manager reduces cloud infrastructure attack surface with new Nessus Agent support for Amazon, Debian, and Ubuntu Linux, simplifying and extending vulnerability management for hard-to-scan devices in any IT environment.

Ron Gula, CEO, Tenable Network Security said, “Since the introduction of Nessus Cloud, Tenable continues to deliver choice and flexibility for customers who want to move some or all of their IT operations to the cloud. Expanded Nessus Agents capabilities for three leading cloud OSes, and a new Nessus scanner coming soon to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace, enable customers to identify vulnerabilities and perform configuration and compliance assessments across on-premises and cloud environments.”

Tenable’s new Nessus scanner, available soon in the AWS Marketplace, targets and assesses Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances in multiple AWS accounts and reports data back to Nessus Cloud or Nessus Manager, making it easy to include AWS vulnerability assessment results in an overall vulnerability management program.
