Secure cloud application delivery

Tenable has integrated Terrascan into Nessus to enable secure cloud application delivery.

Terrascan is an open-source IaC security analyser 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.

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.
