Vulnerabilities Management


Conviso Platform has a complete workflow for vulnerability management, such as the process cycle to evaluate, remediate, and mitigate security weaknesses in systems or applications.


To view all identified vulnerabilities, simply click on the "Vulnerabilities" option in the left-hand menu.


The vulnerabilities will then be displayed according to their respective statuses, which may include:

Notifications Identified: It does not necessarily refer to a specific vulnerability, but to some update or security advisory as a notification identified;

False Positive: indicates that the vulnerability is actually a false positive;

Unpublished: indicates that the vulnerability has restricted visibility by certain security analysts and needs some evaluation before going into identified status;

Identified: indicates that a vulnerability has been identified or discovered;

Risk Accepted: indicates that the vulnerability has been accepted as an acceptable risk, and no action will be taken to fix it;

In Progress: indicates that the vulnerability remediation workflow has started and that the vulnerability is under correction;

Waiting Validation/Waiting Review: indicates that the vulnerability has been fixed, and the solution is awaiting validation;

Fix Accepted: indicates that the solution to the vulnerability has been accepted;

Fix Refused: indicates that the solution to the vulnerability has been rejected.

On this page there is a Filter for you to be able to view vulnerabilities by a specific status, project or asset.

When viewing the list of identified vulnerabilities, you can quickly access a summary of each vulnerability.


Select the vulnerability you want to manage. The vulnerability will expand, exhibiting all projects where it was identified. Click on the project you want to manage to access a Vulnerability Workflow.

Vulnerability Workflow

Clicking on a specific vulnerability’s project will allow you to view its corrective workflow process in detail.

The available statuses for the workflow are:
