Vulnerability Management Overview Dashboard

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

This Tenable-provided dashboard visualizes actionable insights for your vulnerability management program. Tenable.io updates dashboard data every time you run a scan.

Note: There may be a delay between when a scan completes and when the dashboard data updates while Tenable.io indexes the data.

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 category, but the Vulnerability Trending widget graphs vulnerabilities by CVSS-based severity category. For more information about how severity and VPR metrics compare, see CVSS vs. VPR.

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