Vulnerability Management Dashboard

by Carole Fennelly
April 8, 2022

Organizations that do not continuously look for vulnerabilities and proactively address discovered flaws risk the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data in their network. This dashboard provides a high-level overview of an organization's vulnerability management program and helps the organization to identify vulnerabilities, prioritize remediations, and track the remediation progress.


The Potential Sensitive Information widget helps monitor for potentially sensitive data and data access vulnerabilities on the network. Security teams can provide stronger file security and integrity protections by knowing where sensitive or valuable information is stored and identifying associated vulnerabilities. 


Organizations often need a big picture view of the current state of their assets. Individual scans and reports focus on specific areas of assessment and analysis. The Vulnerabilities Overview widget provides an updated overview of an organizations risk level, asset count, and overall cyber gap. The vulnerability information is grouped by different focuses and needs, enabling organizations to plan a high-level mitigation strategy and ensure cyber security team members have the appropriate data for their role.


The current total number of vulnerabilities and their exploitability factor identifies current risk in relation to the total attack surface. The most vulnerable asset information enables organizations to address the most problematic assets first, and addresses the vulnerabilities that pose the greatest threat to those assets. Assets that are hosting internal or user data can be identified to ensure risk is appropriately identified and mitigated.


Security leaders need to SEE everything, PREDICT what matters most and ACT to address cyber risk and effectively align cybersecurity initiatives with business objectives. Tenable.io discovers and analyzes assets continuously to provide an accurate and unified view of an organization’s security posture. 

Widgets


Vulnerabilities Overview – This widget displays all of the current and patched vulnerabilities that have been discovered in Tenable.io. The row in red displays critical severity vulnerability information, the orange row is high severity, the yellow row is medium severity, and the green row is low severity. The Mitigated column displays the total number of mitigated vulnerabilities. The Unmitigated column displays the total number of vulnerabilities that have not yet been mitigated. The Exploitable column displays the percentage of unmitigated vulnerabilities that are known to be exploitable. The Patch Available column displays the percentage of unmitigated, exploitable vulnerabilities that have had a patch available for more than 30 days. The Exploitable Assets column displays the number of assets on the network that have unmitigated, exploitable vulnerabilities.

Top 100 Most Vulnerable Assets – This widget lists the top most vulnerable assets at risk for exploitation. Addressing these assets first greatly reduces cyber risk. Information is filtered by vulnerabilities of high or critical severity that are exploitable, and is sorted by total vulnerabilities. This data on detected vulnerabilities enables analysts to prioritize remediation efforts.
 
Potential Sensitive Information – This widget displays indicators for detection of various types of potentially sensitive information, such as copyright information, databases, or Office files. An indicator is highlighted if the information was detected during an active scan. Many organizations have services that transfer or host sensitive company or third-party information. This component labels the different services that have the potential to contain sensitive data, enabling organizations to focus on assets that could directly affect third-party and company data security.

Exploitable Vulnerabilities Indication – This widget displays warning indicators for exploitable vulnerabilities detected on the network, including Windows vulnerabilities, web vulnerabilities, open-source application vulnerabilities, and vulnerabilities by keywords. This widget labels different types of vulnerabilities found within an organization that can be exploited through publicly available attack frameworks, such as Metasploit. Organizations can use this data to focus on assets that are at risk from known hacks and exploits.  Exploitable vulnerabilities that have been marked as accepted risks or recast to Informational are also noted. Clicking on a highlighted indicator opens the vulnerability workbench to display details for the vulnerabilities and enable further investigation. Moving to an asset grouping on the vulnerability workbench displays the assets on which the vulnerabilities are present.

Data Access Vulnerabilities – This widget lists the top ten vulnerabilities related to data access by count. Plugin IDs are used to filter for vulnerabilities related to file access and sharing, copyrighted files, and data storage. Security analysts can leverage the information provided to ensure compliance with data access and storage policies.
 File sharing and database servers are some of the most attacked targets. This component shows which data sensitive vulnerabilities have been discovered, providing insight on how an organization’s data may be at risk.
