Risk Modified Filter

"Risk Modified not equal to Accepted" is now a default filter in the Vulnerabilities tab in Tenable.io and Tenable.io Web Application Scanning. This filter indicates whether you have accepted or recasted (or both) the severity of a vulnerability. For more information on filter usage, see Create Recast/Accept Rules in Findings and Vulnerability Filters in the Tenable.io User Guide.

Applied Filters Limit increased to Nine

To optimize performance, Tenable.io has increased the number of filters that you can apply to any Explore > Findings or Assets views (including Group By tables) to nine. For more information about filter usage, see Filter an Explore Table in the Tenable.io User Guide.

Increased Plugin Output Details

Plugin output details are now available on the findings details preview plane and details page. For more information, see Host Vulnerability Findings Details in the Tenable.io User Guide.

Plugin Output Data Retention Disabled by Default

You must enable the plugin output data retention option to use the Plugin Output filter and run a scan. Data retention does not start until after data retention is enabled. For more information, see Findings Filters in the Tenable.io User Guide.
