Tenable Integrates Terrascan Into Nessus to Enable Secure Cloud Application Delivery
May 17, 2022 - Tenable®, the Cyber Exposure company, today announced Nessus® now includes Terrascan, the leading open-source cloud security analyzer that helps developers secure Infrastructure as Code (IaC). The integration into Nessus continues to further Tenable’s broader cloud strategy, helping enterprises secure their full cloud stacks both during build time and at runtime. The combined solution helps the Nessus user community address security operations and cloud application infrastructure.
Terrascan is an open-source IaC security analyzer that enables cloud developers to scan infrastructure code and find security issues as part of the software delivery process. With more than 500 out-of-the-box policies, it helps identify issues such as missing or misconfigured encryption on resources and communication, and inadvertent exposure of cloud services.
“Infrastructure as Code is about making development and cloud delivery programmatic and efficient. Adding Terrascan to Nessus will enable the Nessus community to more easily validate the configuration state of modern infrastructure before it gets deployed, giving cloud developers peace of mind, knowing that the process can be managed securely,” said Glen Pendley, chief technology officer, Tenable. “Terrascan will remain open source.
We are not changing the model, and we value and are committed to the Terrascan community, with plans for additional development and investments to increase usability and accessibility.”
