DenyAll Vulnerability Manager version 6.6 enhancements

This new version 6.6 brings the following enhancements:

Drag & Drop in inventory
In the Inventory panel, it is now possible to drag and drop devices or websites between groups of the site they belong to.

Multi-criteria search for vulnerabilities
A new button “Advanced filters” has been added in the “Vulnerabilities” panel to enable more search fields on vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Manager 6.6

Vulnerability based scan
Vulnerabilities can now be selected and tested separately to know if they have been correctly fixed by the new “Retest” button available in all panel displaying vulnerabilities such as “Assets Inventory”, “Vulnerabilities” or “Tickets”. When used, the “Retest” button will automatically schedule a new “Vulnerability Search” task but limited to the selected vulnerabilities. Thus, the scan duration will be greatly reduced.

Vulnerability Manager 6.6

Discovery and scan results sent through syslog
A new tab named “Syslog vulnerabilities export” has been added in the “Network” panel. In this tab, it is possible to enable results of discoveries and scans through syslog. Each device or website discovery and each vulnerability will be sent in XML format to the configured syslog server.

Vulnerability Manager 6.6

Audit logs sent through syslog
Vulnerability Manager audit logs can now be exported through syslog. A new option in the “Logs configuration” tab of the “Network” panel allows configuration of a syslog for audit logs. The logs can still be stored locally in database if needed.
