States

States allow you to better filter and manage your vulnerabilities based on the states determined by the Tenable.io state service. States appear as text badges in the tables that appear on the Vulnerabilities workbench. You can filter vulnerabilities by states.

You can better manage the vulnerabilities tracked and reported by Tenable.io with states. By tracking vulnerability states, you can see changes in your system's vulnerabilities or detections over time. You can track the detection, resolution, and reappearance of vulnerabilities using the available states in the following table.
