Vulnerability States

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.

Note: If you filter vulnerabilities using the Active state, Tenable.io also returns vulnerabilities in the New state. For filtering purposes, New is a sub-category of Active.
