SecOps Solution vs Nesssus

Nessus is a proprietary vulnerability scanner developed by Tenable, Inc. Nessus performs its scans by utilizing plugins, which run against each host on the network to identify vulnerabilities.

Why choose SecOps over Nesssus



SecOps Solution is a 100% agent-less platform that allows Easy & Quick Deployment. It can set up and start evaluating your security threats in only a few minutes. SecOps was particularly more effective in identifying zero-day vulnerabilities.

Nessus relies on resource-heavy agents. Nessus' database updates were slow and relied on manual updating the plugins on every scan. Scanning was resource-intensive and took 3x more time than SecOps Solution’s agent-less scanners.


Context-aware, Risk-based prioritization

SecOps effectively assesses warnings utilizing context, assisting you in concentrating on the top 1% of most important risks only.

However, the Nessus Platform does not support such a feature.


Mobile App Security

The most complete mobile app scanning platform is provided by SecOps Solution.

Nessus, however, does not support Mobile App Security.



SecOps Solution has support for PCI-DSS, HIPAA, CIS Level 1, CIS Level 2 and ISO 27001.

Nessus offers assistance with PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and CIS compliance.


Microservice Security

Both static and dynamic microservice security is supported by SecOps Solution.

Nessus doesn't scan containers for vulnerabilities. It can only audit docker files.


Web App Security

Complete coverage of the OWASP TOP 10, WASC, and SANS TOP 25 is provided by SecOps Solution.

Nessus had rudimentary support for web app scans, which covered checks for very basic misconfigurations only. It had no support for even OWASP top 10.
