What is Tenable Security Center?

Tenable Security Center is a vulnerability management solution for distributed and complex IT infrastructure. Tenable Security Center consolidates and evaluates vulnerability data, illustrates vulnerability trends over time, and assesses risk with actionable context.

Why Should You Use the Tenable Security Center Connector?

The Tenable Security Center connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between assets, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Tenable Security Center REST API and ingests only meta-data about Tenable Security Center devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
