Detect potential vulnerabilities in your network.
The Nessus Project provides a free, powerful, up-to-date, and easy-to-use remote security scanner. It is designed to remotely audit a given network and determine whether it is vulnerable to hackers or other types of malicious attacks.
Unlike other security scanners, Nessus will detect all used ports and physically test their security. It does not make its security assessment based on the version number of the remote services, but will actually attempt to exploit the vulnerability.
- credentialed and un-credentialed port scanning
- network based vulnerability scanning
- credentialed based patch audits for Windows and most Unix platforms
- credentialed configuration auditing of most Windows, Unix platforms
- robust and comprehensive credentialed security testing of 3rd party applications such as iTunes, JAVA, Skype and Firefox
- custom and embedded web application vulnerability testing
- SQL database configuration auditing
- Cisco Router configuration auditing
- software enumeration on Unix and Windows
- testing anti-virus installs for out-of date signatures and configuration errors

he Nessus vulnerability scanner is the world's most widely-deployed vulnerability and configuration assessment product, with over five million downloads to date. Nessus is rated among the top vulnerability scanners throughout the security industry and is endorsed by professional security organizations, such as, the SANS Institute. Nessus is supported by a world-renowned research team and has an extensive vulnerability knowledge base that is continually updated.
The Tenable Nessus vulnerability scanner does not require deployment of agents on the target systems. This allows you to rapidly deploy the Nessus scanners, eliminates the need for agent patching, and creates a flexible environment that is independent of target-specific agents.
Each Nessus scanner can make use of Microsoft Windows Domain, UNIX Secure Shell keys, or SNMPv2 community strings for IT audits. If you are using Nessus during a penetration test and obtain an NTLM hash, you can make use of that as well.
The Tenable Nessus vulnerability scanner can be used to perform agentless configuration audits of UNIX, Windows, and Mac OS X systems, applications, and databases. If your organization has a configuration policy for server settings, or if you wish to audit your systems against public and government best practices from the NSA, CERT, and CIS, Nessus can perform these audits for you.
The Nessus compliance checks are available to Tenable customers who subscribe to the Nessus ProfessionalFeed or who have implemented Tenable SecurityCenter. ProfessionalFeed subscribers can run the configuration audits as part of their regular vulnerability scans and patch audits with Nessus. SecurityCenter customers can use specific compliance audits against specific assets. This allows for auditing and reporting of unique assets, such as, the HR database servers, email servers, firewalls, Active Directory servers, and so on.
Nessus ProfessionalFeed subscribers can perform PCI DSS vulnerability audits, web application assessments, and configuration audits of the operating systems, applications, and SQL databases against minimum PCI-recommended standards.
Tenable also offers a variety of complete enterprise PCI solutions that build on our additional log analysis, user monitoring, and network behavioral profiling solutions, including the ability to perform a PCI scan on a LAMP server.
Nessus can perform configuration scans of UNIX, Windows, and Mac OS X servers, applications, and databases to test for specific policy settings. Supported configuration audit policies include, but are not limited to:
- Anti-virus vendor audits
- CERT recommendations
- CIS best practice guides
- DISA STIGs
- GLBA guidelines
- HIPAA profiles
- NIST SCAP and FDCC content
- NSA best practice guides
- PCI configuration requirements
- Recommended vendor settings
- Cisco router configurations
The types of configuration audits performed by Nessus include Windows user policies, file permissions, registry permissions, service permissions, and specific security policies, such as, Kerberos and event auditing policies. Windows tests can also include custom WMI queries and scanning for computers that have been infected with viruses and malware. For UNIX systems, user policies, file permissions, running processes, and file content checks can be audited. SQL audits can detect a wide variety of issues, such as, if various stored procedures have been disabled. Combinations of each of these types of audits can be combined to perform tests against thousands of files, registry settings, users, and so on. Audits of Cisco routers ensure that authentication, services, SNMP, and other settings are hardened to best practice standards.
