Nessus 3 agent-less compliance checks
Tenable released two new plugins for Nessus 3 that can audit the configuration of a remote UNIX or Windows system and report "compliant" or "not compliant" with a set of user-defined security policy configuration settings. They also wrote policies based off of the publicly available hardening and best practice guides from the NSA, NIST, CERT and the Center for Internet Security. These plugins are available to any Nessus Direct Feed customer or Security Center user.
