Vulnerability Management Overview

Note: This section describes the new Tenable.io interface. For more information, see Navigate the New Tenable.io Interface.

This Tenable-provided dashboard visualizes actionable insights for your vulnerability management program. You can roll over individual items to reveal additional information or click on items to drill down into details behind the data.

Tip: All charts on the Vulnerability Management Overview display New, Active, and Resurfaced vulnerability data. However, the counts or data displayed on each chart may differ for other reasons. For example, the Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR) widget organizes vulnerabilities by VPR range, but the Vulnerability Trending widget graphs vulnerabilities by severity category. For more information about how severity and VPR metrics compare, see Severity vs. VPR.

In the Vulnerability Management Overview, you can interact with the following widgets:

Widget Action
Statistics

This widget summarizes the actionable metrics for your network during the past 30 days.

  • To view a list of vulnerabilities, click the vulnerability count or one of the severity category count metrics. For more information, see View Vulnerabilities by Plugin.
  • To view a list of assets, click the assets count or one of the recent discovery metrics. For more information, see View Asset Details.
  • View the scan metrics and investigate failed scans, if necessary. For more information, see Scans.
Scan Coverage

This widget summarizes how thoroughly your scans assessed your environment during the past 90 days.

Note: The Scan Coverage pie chart is inactive in the current version of Tenable.io. If you roll over the pie chart, no tool tips appear. If you click the pie chart, no planes appear.

Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

This widget summarizes the number of vulnerabilities on your network, organized by VPR. For more information, see Severity vs. VPR.

To view a list of vulnerabilities filtered by a VPR range, click one of the tiles. For more information, see View Vulnerabilities by Plugin.

Vulnerability Trending

This widget displays the total number of Critical, High, Medium, and Low severity vulnerabilities on your network over time. For more information, see Severity vs. VPR.

  • To filter the data displayed on the graph, roll over the graph and click the Filter. Then, select a time range.
  • To view historical vulnerability count and severity data, roll over a point on the graph.

  • To view a list of current vulnerabilities filtered by a severity category and by New, Active, or Resurfaced state, click a point on the graph. For more information, see View Vulnerabilities by Plugin.

Critical and High Exploitable Vulnerabilities

This widget summarizes the number of vulnerabilities on your network with severities in the Critical and High categories, organized by exploitability characteristic. For more information about severity data and categories, see Severity vs. VPR.

To view a list of vulnerabilities, click one of the bars. For more information, see View Vulnerabilities by Plugin.

Future Threats: Not Yet Exploitable Vulnerabilities

This widget summarizes the vulnerabilities that are not yet exploitable based on the following criteria:

  • Exploit Code Maturity
  • Vulnerability Publication Date

Prioritization is from left to right. Tenable.io addresses proof-of-concept vulnerabilities before those with no known exploit.

Vulnerability Age: Managing SLAs

This widget summarizes the age of your vulnerabilities, organized by severity category. For more information about severity data and categories, see Severity vs. VPR.

To view a list of vulnerabilities, click one of the vulnerability counts. For more information, see View Vulnerabilities by Plugin.
