Automatically Reopen Vulnerabilities when a Fix is Available

  • Updated

Regardless of fixability status, Vanta will pull in all vulnerabilities detected from a vulnerability scanner integration. This ensures that companies continuously review and assess the risk of all vulnerabilities, not just those with remediations available. To make this vulnerability management process more seamless, users can automatically reopen vulnerability when remediation becomes available.


Automatically Reopening a Vulnerability 

  • From the left-hand navigation panel, select Vulnerabilities  
  • Choose Findings by Vulnerability 
    • To find vulnerabilities that do not have a fic available, you can filter by Fixability
