Deactivate Vulnerabilities until a Specified Date

  • Updated

Vanta now allows to ignore or pause vulnerabilities until a specified date. This is helpful if your company is choosing to hold off on remediating a vulnerability until a fix is available or to extend the due date due to an exception they raised with their auditor. 


  • From the left-hand navigation panel, select Vulnerabilities 
  • Findings by Vulnerability to view all vulnerabilities identified from monitored assets 
  • Select the Vulnerabilities you would like to deactivate by clicking the checkbox icon
  • Select Deactivate monitoring

  • Deactivate Indefinitely or Deactivate until a specific date by using the calendar picker
  • Select a reason for deactivating the Vulnerability
  • Select Deactivate
