Nessus v10 vulnerability assessment scanner is officially released on 2-Nov-2021.
Tenable Makes the Power of Nessus v10.0 Portable with Raspberry Pi
Tenable has released Nessus v10.0 and extended supported platforms to include Raspberry Pi, allowing penetration testers, consultants, security teams and students to deploy the power of Nessus v10.0 anywhere. The latest release makes vulnerability assessments with Nessus even more simple, easy and intuitive.
Nessus v10 extends supported platforms to include Raspberry Pi, due to its extreme portable form factor, allowing penetration testers, consultants, security teams and students to deploy the power of Nessus v10 anywhere. With the included Raspberry Pi, it makes the leading vulnerability assessments with Nessus Pro even more simple, easy and intuitive for enterprise customers.
As the world recalibrated to support hybrid and remote work, the security community has had to adjust, too. Continuing business operations without the need for travel is now status quo, which can be challenging for consultants that require physical access to conduct internal audits and vulnerability assessments in client environments. With Nessus v10.0 now available on Raspberry Pi, consultants can easily ship disposable scanners to clients for remote-friendly assessments.
While ransomware attacks continue to target unpatched and unmanaged assets, this portability and flexibility also brings added visibility and control to enterprise security teams. Large organizations can deploy Nessus on Raspberry Pi to remotely assess their smaller offices and off-site environments, consolidating assessment results back to Tenable.io, Tenable.ep or Tenable.sc for prioritization and response.
In addition to its availability on Raspberry Pi, Nessus v10.0 builds on existing functionality with new capabilities for all new and existing customers to further optimize performance and provide an enhanced user experience, including:
- A dynamic plugin feature that reduces the footprint of the Nessus Plugin database by up to 75%, improving scan performance while decreasing scanner memory overhead.
- A built-in packet capture feature that enables powerful debugging to troubleshoot potential scanning issues.
- A new resource center with user-specific information that provides actionable tips and guidance based on the operations being performed.
Raspberry Pi is growing in popularity due to it meeting demand for low cost PC and IoT. It is popular for “build it yourself” PC and industrial (IoT) sectors. Nessus v10 vulnerability assessment scanner with Raspberry Pi support provides a cost effective means for installing Nessus Professional and having it run in the remote site, where hardware cost was prohibited in the past before Raspberry Pi became available.
