What is Nessus Agent?

Overview

Nessus Agent may appear in your list of installed software. Nessus Agent detects vulnerable software, misconfigured settings, and other security issues on your device so they can be remediated before malware or a malicious actor exploits them.

Nesus Agent scans your machine periodically. Scans run in the background with no noticeable interruptions or visible notifications. If any security issues are found the Information Security Office or your local support team will reach out to notify you of the issue and help with remediation.

If you have any questions about Nessus Agent please contact your local support team at support@uidaho.edu.
