Vulnerability Scanning Service

A service of IET

A self-directed Nessus scan is initiated by a VLAN administrator or technology support coordinator (TSC). These self-directed scans can be configured to search for more vulnerabilities than the campus scan seeks.

The Nessus vulnerability scanner provides patch, configuration, and compliance auditing; mobile, malware and botnet discovery; and sensitive data identification, with a continuously updated library of more than 60,000 plug-ins and the support of Tenable's expert vulnerability research team.

Features/Benefits: 
  • Assess and remediate vulnerabilities
Get Started: 

To perform these scans, system administrators need access to the Nessus self-scanner. You can obtain access via the:

2) IP LOOKUP TOOL. Find it under "System Administrator" resources at security.ucdavis.edu;
