Tenable Network Security Debuts Pre-authorized Nessus Edition for Amazon Web Services

July 21, 2014

Tenable Network Security, Inc., introduces the availability of Nessus Enterprise for Amazon Web Services (AWS) on AWS Marketplace.

According to a release, the new solution allows AWS developers and customers to scan their Amazon Machine Images (AMI) assets within the AWS Cloud for potential vulnerabilities, threats and compliance violations during development and before they are deployed into production for preauthorization.

This new offering, available today, can be purchased directly through AWS Marketplace as a manager and scanner through an annual subscription. With annual pricing, customers can save between 10 to 40 percent compared to hourly prices and more accurately budget for software expenses ahead of time to meet their long-term solution needs.

"Nessus Enterprise adds additional layers of security on AWS for both developers and end users by scanning, auditing and monitoring software vulnerabilities for all AMIs and a customer's underlying AWS workloads," said Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable Network Security. "Tenable helps ensure security issues are rooted out during development and staging and that AMIs can securely operate in production."

Also available on the AWS Marketplace is Nessus (BYOL), an AWS virtual machine version of the current Nessus vulnerability scanner. Under the Bring Your Own License (BYOL) model, Tenable customers can apply their existing Nessus licenses to this AMI or purchase additional licenses from the Tenable Store or channel partners.

"We are excited to have Nessus for AWS available via annual subscription on the AWS Marketplace," said Terry Hanold, Vice President, Cloud Commerce, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "Customers can now easily and quickly purchase Nessus on AWS Marketplace to help provide additional layers of protection for their workloads running on AWS."

Tenable Network Security provides continuous network monitoring to identify vulnerabilities, reduce risk and ensure compliance.
