Assessments Page: Overview

Summary: A high-level overview of the Assessments page in Ivanti Neurons.

Assessments are a snapshot of a certain point in time relating to the data within Ivanti Neurons. This list view will provide the user with system-generated assessments that have been created and user-created assessments.

These icons are displayed in the list view and are a crucial component of running Update Remediation by Assessment (URbA). Essentially, URbA takes the current state and status of all assets and vulnerabilities for a specific point in time and compares that with the data from the last assessment. Based on that data comparison, the platform can evaluate if vulnerabilities have been closed, opened, or reopened.
