Nessus Professional: What’s new in Nessus v8?


Nessus Professional


Nessus 8.0 is the latest update of one of the most widely used vulnerability scanners around the world. This new version introduces features designed to help companies’ security teams identify vulnerabilities and threats more quickly. These features include:



  • Live Results

Thanks to this function, Nessus Professional 8.0 will be able to perform automatic evaluations of the system even without having to be connected to the network. This type of analysis can be executed in real time and even more will be able to determine the vulnerable points of any computer ecosystem through inference based on the analysis history of the system. This new feature represents a great advantage for users as it will exponentially improve the speed of threat detection and resolution of security problems.

  • Vulnerability Snoozing/Inboxing

If one thing is true, it is that not all the exploits that are detected in the system have the same degree of priority. This is why, in order to avoid the information overload that the appearance of multiple simultaneous alerts can bring; Nessus 8 introduces a new function that will allow users to “snooze” those vulnerabilities of lower relevance in order to focus on those that represent higher impact threats. Those “snoozed” problems can be scheduled to reappear later when the security team is ready to pay attention.

  • Vulnerability Grouping

In this new update, Nessus Professional 8 will also include a “clustered view” of those vulnerabilities that are related to each other. In this way, users will be able to classify threats by groups to determine their source more quickly and easily. What improvements does this vulnerability scanner bring?


Nessus Professional is one of the most recent releases of the Cyber Exposure company and; due to its effective performance, this solution has already won the preference of users. In this new version we will find:





  • New interface

  • New Plugin for JIRA

Good news also for JIRA users. The new update also includes a customizable plugin for JIRA for vulnerability classifications.
