Evolving IT Security Needs Require Flexible Integration Options – Tenable Network Security

Because many businesses now allow unmanaged bring-your-own-device (BYOD) access by employees and customers, increasing challenges related to recognizing and managing that access are introduced into corporate environments. To address these challenges, companies typically acquire Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Patch Management (PM) systems. Another critical component of maintaining network security is scanning to find who and what is accessing a network – potentially stealing sensitive information.

Tenable Network Security’s industry leading vulnerability scanning product, Nessus, can provide this type of scanning intelligence to PM and MDM systems, and also offers flexible deployment options – on premise or via the cloud. For example, to identify missing patches on vulnerable systems and detect unmanaged systems, Tenable’s Nessus vulnerability scanner integrates with Dell KACE K1000 Systems Management appliances along with other leading PM systems.

To identify vulnerable devices (both virtual and physical) and to prioritize overall risk to the organization, Nessus also integrates to MDMs like Microsoft Exchange, Apple Profile Manager, Good for Enterprise, MobileIron, and AirWatch.

Nessus can also be deployed in a number of configurations to meet evolving IT security requirements: Single user or centrally managed, distributed, multi-scanner configurations; On premise in single or multiple locations; Or via the cloud.
