We are pleased to announce the release of a new security tool, AutoNessus, that allows greater ease of use and scheduling for Nessus. Our new tool was built by RedTeam Security consultant, Matt Grandy, and designed to fill a gap in the controlling of Nessus scans where scan windows are tight and time boxed. The tool allows its user to list current scans/IDs and more importantly start, stop and resume scans. Need to start a scan at 7:15 pm, then stop it at 3am and re-start it again at 5am? No problem. This tool will enable your security consultants or IT team to get some much needed sleep without having to manually interact with the automated phases of your penetration testing process.

We are releasing AutoNessus as part of our personal contribution to the security community and to aid those who have struggled with the same issues that we have. If you like our tools, please spread the word!
