Tenable Security Center

We have upgraded our Nessus scanner with Tenable's Security Center to get a better view of risk data over time.
Feed Information Security runs a Tenable Security Center server, connecting with several Nessus scanners that perform network scans. Critical Component scans are run on a regular basis utilizing this system.
Service If you are a Local Support Provider, you are welcome to use a Nessus scanner to scan your hosts on Penn's network. Even if you have a license of your own, you might like to see your network from an outside perspective.
Details For more details about the capabilities of Nessus and Security Center, please see the Tenable site:
