  • Patent number: 9811667
    Abstract: A system and method in one embodiment includes modules for creating a vulnerability set including one or more vulnerabilities, adding the vulnerability set to a program, and updating the program by adding a new vulnerability to the vulnerability set. More specific embodiments include a program that includes a scan, creating the vulnerability set by generating a query including one or more conditions associated with the vulnerabilities, and creating the vulnerability set by selecting one or more vulnerabilities from a plurality of vulnerabilities. Other embodiments include a program that includes a report template, adding a vulnerability set to the report template by generating a query to include a condition associated with the vulnerability set, running a scan, and generating a report including one or more results from the scan meeting the condition associated with the vulnerability set.

  • Patent number: 9251351
    Abstract: A system and method in one embodiment includes modules for creating an asset tag including one or more conditions of an asset on a network, adding the asset tag to an asset report template, and generating an asset report from the asset report template. More specific embodiments include creating the asset tag by generating a query for the one or more conditions. The asset tag may include a second asset tag configured to be updated automatically, and a third asset tag configured to be updated manually, and the second asset tag may be updated automatically when the asset tag is updated. Other embodiments include creating a vulnerability set including a selection of vulnerabilities from a plurality of vulnerabilities, adding the vulnerability set to the asset report template, and scanning a plurality of assets on the network.
