Nessus is an open-source vulnerability scanner used to audit business-critical enterprise devices and applications.

In 2002, Renaud co-founded Tenable Network Security with Ron Gula, creator of the Dragon Intrusion Detection System and Jack Huffard. Tenable Network Security is the owner, sole developer and licensor for the Nessus Open-Source Scanner source code, the Nessus trademark and the domain worldwide.
