Tenable.io Integration

The Tenable.io integration provides InsightCloudSec the ability to communicate with assets in your Tenable.io accounts. As an example, you can send high priority security alerts when a Tenable Agent has not checked in recently or it has no Agent configured.

Prerequisites & Requirements

At this time we only support Tenable.io.

  • This guide assumes that you have installed and linked Nessus Agents to your instances.
  • The Tenable.io Agent must have had at least one completed scan run after the integration is configured.
  • A Tenable user with Administrator access.

For general information about InsightCloudSec Integrations (editing and deleting), refer to the Integrations Overview page.

If you need help with this integration, contact us through the Customer Support Portal.

Tenable Filters

The following Query Filters are currently available for use with the Tenable.io integration:

  • Instance With Tenable.io Agent Configured
  • Instance With Tenable.io Agent Not Configured
  • Instance With Tenable.io Agent Last Checkin Threshold

For example, you can use the Query Filter Instance With Tenable.io Agent Configured to show what instances have the Tenable Agent installed.

If you are interested in using these Query Filters with automation, InsightCloudSec includes Bot actions that you may be interested in using as part of your Tenable.io integration.

For detailed step-by-step instructions on using automation check out our documentation on Creating Bots. You can also check out Working with Bots (Best Practices & Examples) if you want to review some examples.

  1. Navigate to Administration > System Administration and select the Background Jobs tab.
  2. Search for Agent.
