In a statement, the company said with this version, the number of supported platforms for Nessus had been extended to include the Raspberry Pi.
Nessus works by testing out each port on a system, determining what service it is running and then testing the service to see if it is a vulnerable version.
Nessus server is available for Unix, Linux and FreeBSD, while the client runs on both Unix-based and Windows-based operating systems.
The software is claimed to have the lowest rate of false positives and has been downloaded more than two million times.
"We developed Nessus with one goal in mind: making vulnerability assessment simple, easy and intuitive for everyone," said Tenable co-founder and chief technology officer Renaud Deraison.
"Tenable continues to invest in research and development that enriches existing Nessus functionality while bringing exciting new features to market.
"With v10, we're making the power of Nessus portable and affordable with Raspberry Pi and bringing the gold standard for vulnerability assessment to anyone, anywhere."
Nessus v10.0 also features:
- A dynamic plugin feature that reduces the footprint of the Nessus Plugin database by up to 75%, improving scan performance while decreasing scanner memory overhead.
- A built-in packet capture feature that enables powerful debugging to troubleshoot potential scanning issues.
- A new resource center with user-specific information that provides actionable tips and guidance based on the operations being performed.
