A closed risk is a vulnerability finding from a previous scan that was no longer detected in the most recent scan.

HostedScan tracks this historical information to provide a full audit trail of your vulnerability scanning and risk management, which you can use to prove compliance with remediation SLAs.

Here is an example lifecycle:

  1. You run a scan which detects a vulnerability. The status in HostedScan is Open.
  2. You fix the vulnerability
  3. You run a new scan. The vulnerability is no longer detected. The status in HostedScan is update to Closed.
