Vulnerability States in the Classic Interface

Tenable assigns a vulnerability state to all vulnerabilities detected on your network. You can track and filter by vulnerability state to see the detection, resolution, and reappearance of vulnerabilities over time. States appear as text badges in the tables that appear on the Vulnerabilities workbench.
