You can’t protect what you can’t see
Digitization and the ever-expanding enterprise have changed the security landscape. As the boundaries of the traditional workplace expand, and organizations adopt cloud computing services and an increasingly mobile workforce, the lack of visibility into your IT environment is a major challenge.
Get visibility with Nessus Agents
Nessus Agents give you visibility into additional IT assets- even endpoints, and other remote assets that intermittently connect to the internet. They collect asset and system information and send it back to Tenable Vulnerability Management (formerly Tenable.io) or Tenable Security Center (formerly Tenable.sc) for analysis. You get a low footprint agent that extends scan coverage and increases scan flexibility.
Nessus Agents can be installed anywhere, on any host- in the cloud or on-prem- from laptops and endpoints to desktops and virtual machines.
Minimize credential headache
Once deployed agents no longer require host credentials to run agent-based scans
Minimal performance impact
Nessus Agents are lightweight and designed to have minimal impact on end-users and the network. They’re quickly deployed via software management systems and auto-update without requiring a reboot or end user interaction.
Extend scan coverage
Nessus agents work where it’s not possible or practical do to traditional network scans. They collect security, compliance and vulnerability data from hard to scan assets like endpoints and other transient devices and send it back to Tenable Vulnerability Management or Tenable Security Center for analysis.
Combine Traditional Scanning with Agent-Based Scans
When combined with traditional scanning from Nessus you get a unified view of your security and compliance data across all IT assets, giving you instant visibility into vulnerabilities and where to focus.
