Molloy is responsible for overseeing the operations, deployment, design and architecture of a complete Tenable product lineup in the cloud.

Tenable's plans for the cloud go beyond the Nessus product line and are intended to give customers more choice and flexibility when selecting a deployment that works for them.

Tenable Network Security Announces Nessus Manager

Tenable Network Security, Inc. announced new capabilities for its cybersecurity products with the availability of agent-based scanning in Nessus Manager, a new and improved version of Tenable’s Nessus vulnerability management platform designed with enterprise users in mind. With Nessus Agents, enterprises and government agencies can achieve and maintain compliance with security policies by discovering and assessing transient network assets and detecting vulnerabilities even when devices are not connected to the network. Nessus Manager extends the power of Nessus with centralized management of distributed scanners and collaboration features for the entire enterprise. Nessus Agents are lightweight, self-contained vulnerability assessment tools that run remotely on any Windows device — including laptops, mobile devices, and virtual systems along with desktops and servers. After downloading instructions, the agent performs a low-impact scan on schedule whether the host device is connected to the network or not. The agent collects vulnerability and configuration information and sends the results to a central Nessus server the next time the device is connected to the network for a more complete view of asset configuration and compliance. The newest addition to the Nessus product line is designed with the enterprise in mind and provides full service scanner management, including collaboration, centralized administration and improved scheduling for multiple scanners. With Nessus Manager, vulnerability assessments can be scheduled over a number of days to ensure that all assets are discovered and assessed for comprehensive network visibility. Assessments can also be repeated multiple times for optimum protection and results can be shared with administrators across the organization. Nessus Manager provides four user levels for managed access to resources based on user/group permissions. Role-based access enables sharing of scanners, schedules, policies, and results with system administrators and co-workers who are responsible for patching and remediating their systems. This collaborative feature makes scanning and auditing more efficient, freeing up time and resources.
