    Vulnerability Data Analytics

    EventLog Analyzer can process log data from vulnerability scanners such as Nessus, Qualys, OpenVAS, and NMAP. The data ingested from vulnerability scanners can be incorporated into the correlation engine to discover complex attack patterns. The solution generates out-of-the-box reports and predefined alert criteria that help in identifying and prioritizing vulnerabilities in your network. The report groups available are:

    EventLog Analyzer also has predefined alert criteria corresponding to the above categories. Setting up an alert profile for vulnerability scanners is similar to a predefined alert profile. The only difference is that you need to choose Vulnerability as the type from the predefined list and then choose the appropriate alert condition.
