Trend Matrix Report

The Trend Matrix Report provides correlated, trending data about the status of those vulnerabilities identified in your web application across several scans and enables you to easily track changes in the web application.

Acunetix 360 automatically begins to collate the Trend Matrix Report when you run more than one scan on the same target web application.

The Trend Matrix Report is displayed in the browser and provides:

  • An overview of the evolving threats to your website, at a glance.
  • Detailed information on vulnerabilities, such as when it was found, when it was fixed, and whether the same vulnerability was found again in subsequent scans.
  • Scans listed in chronological order to make it easier for you to monitor the changes in your web application over time and track the progress and work of your developers.
  • Vulnerabilities grouped by severity, so that you can see mission-critical vulnerabilities immediately and begin to prioritize them.

The Trend Matrix Report addresses both technical and non-technical users, providing either a summary of the changing security status or access to detailed technical details of all vulnerabilities

Severity Filter

The Trend Matrix Report is interactive. Using the Severity Filter, you can select to view only critical or high severity issues, for example.

For more information, see Vulnerability Severity Levels.

Scan Group Filter

You can filter the Trend Matrix Report via the scan group drop-down. You can view the report based on the scan group. To filter, there should be more than one scan group. For further information, see Scan Groups in Acunetix 360.

Vulnerability Summary

This section provides a summary of information about each discovered vulnerable URL and categorizes them based on severity. For example, if Acunetix 360 determines a vulnerability as Critical, it requires immediate attention.

This table lists and explains the columns in the Vulnerability Summary.
