Historic Patch Mitigation Status

by Cody Dumont
September 11, 2013

This dashboard shows a historic patch risk mitigation summary, over different periods of time.  Using the native ability within SecurityCenter, this dashboard brings together a collection of components that delivers the patch rate status and the patch date status.  

  • The patch rate refers to the "Days to Mitigate" filter.  This "Days to Mitigate" filter allows the user to track the number of days since a vulnerability was moved to the mitigated database.
  • The patch date refers to the "Days Since Mitigation" filter.  "Days Since Mitigation" allows the user to filter results based on when the vulnerability was mitigated.

The components are broken down into 3 components for each filter type.  The first component has 2 columns; the first shows the IP count for systems that have matches from 0 to 10 days, while the 2nd column is 11 - 20 days.  The second component has 4 columns, with a similar pattern as the first component. The patterns are:

  • Within 30 days - 21 to 30
  • Within 40 days - 31 to 40
  • Within 50 days - 41 to 50
  • Within 60 days - 51 to 60

The final component from the 2 component series has a single column with a filter for 61 - 999 days.

The dashboard and its components are available in the SecurityCenter 4.7 Dashboard app feed, an app store of dashboards, reports and assets.
The dashboard requirements are:

  • SecurityCenter 4.7
  • Nessus 5.2.1

Host Count - Patch Rate 21 - 60 Days

This component displays the patch rate status for all patches applied between 21 and 60 days.

Host Count - Patch Rate > 60 Days

This component displays the patch rate status for all patches applied greater than 60 days.

Host Count - Patch Date 0 - 20 Days

This component displays the patch date status for all patches applied within the past 20 days.

Host Count - Patch Date 21 - 60 Days

This component displays the patch date status for all patches applied between 21 and 60 days.

Host Count - Patch Date > 60 Days
