Tenable provides recommended solutions for all vulnerabilities on your network. You can sort recommended solutions by Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR) to identify your highest priority solutions, then drill into the solution details to understand the steps to address the vulnerability on your network.

Addressing a vulnerability instance lowers your CES and AES metrics.

For a demonstration on viewing solutions, see the following video:
