Automated Retest for External Infrastructure
The BreachLock SaaS platform allows you to apply for an automated retest for the vulnerabilities discovered through External Network scanning. This feature helps you to instantly validate the patches applied by you for the discovered vulnerabilities.
You can use the retest functionality by navigating to the “Vulnerability” section under the External Network Scanning module.
Once you are on the “Vulnerability” page, you will be able to see the Retest button under “Actions” for each of the listed vulnerabilities.
Once you click on the retest button, a pop-up will appear with a message to check the status for the vulnerability after 30 minutes. Clicking on “Ok” will initiate the retest for the specific vulnerability.
If the patch applied is valid, Then the vulnerability won’t be discovered during the retest and the vulnerability will move to the “Patched” section in Vulnerabilities for External Network Scanning module.
If the vulnerability remains in the “Unpatched” section, it means that the patch was not applied properly, and the vulnerability is still present for the asset. In this case, you will notice that the “Latest Discovery” date has been updated.
