Tenable provides a top 20 list of recommended actions (solutions). You can identify solutions, then drill into the solution details to understand the steps to address the vulnerability on your network.

Addressing vulnerabilities on your network lowers your CES and AES metrics.

  1. Navigate to the new Tenable.io interface, as described in Access the New Tenable.io Interface.

  2. In the upper-left corner, click the button.
