Resolved vs. Acceptable Risk Progress Statuses When Closing Issues

At the end of a remediation process, operators can determine the Issue is Resolved or Acceptable Risk.
At the end of a remediation process, operators can determine the Issue is
Resolved
, or the Issue is an
Acceptable Risk
. Both settings close the remediation, but Cortex® Xpanse™ Expander acts differently if the Issue arise again:
  • Resolved
    —Set the
    Issue Status
    to
    Resolved
    if you want Cortex Xpanse Expander to reopen the Issue when Cortex Xpanse observes the problem in the future.
  • Acceptable Risk
    —Set the
    Issue Status
    to
    Acceptable Risk
    if you do not want updates if Cortex Xpanse either continues to observe the Issue or if the Issue reappears in the future.
    Acceptable Risk
    allows you to determine that an Issue is OK even though you have not resolved the underlying problem. Because the underlying problem persists, Cortex Xpanse highly recommends performing a periodic audit of items marked
    Acceptable Risk
    .
