Defining global SLAs

Vulcan allows you to set different SLA timeframes for different levels of risk associated with vulnerabilities. The system takes these SLA timeframes into account in remediation, alerting and reporting.

Use the table to set the SLA (in days) for each level of risk.

  • Critical

  • High

  • Medium

  • Low

Defining risk priority weights

Vulcan’s risk algorithm intelligently incorporates different contextual attributes to produce a dynamic risk score for each vulnerability in your environment.The system allows you to set your own weights for the different attributes and choose which aspects are more important to you.
In the Administration tab of the Settings page, use the table to set different weights for the attributes that define the risk algorithm:

  • Technical severity – CVSS or other scores as provided by the scanning vendor 

  • Threats – Exploits, malware, OWASP Top 10 and other threat intelligence in the wild.

  • Tags – The impact (High, medium, low) of tags on the vulnerable assets

Values must add up to one.

Custom Risk scripts

Vulcan allows you to personalize your risk model with Python scripts! See more information here.

Including/hiding archived assets

Vulcan allows you to control how and when an asset is presumed inactive and can thus be removed from the system. See more information here.
