Get notified when changes occur.


To keep your attack surface secure, you must be aware of unexpected changes and act swiftly to remediate them. We created the Events feature to help you streamline this process.

When we identify a change or a new issue, we call that an event.

There many types of events, but a few examples include:

  • A scan finishes

  • A new vulnerability is detected

  • A new target is added to your account

For a full list of event types, see:

pageEvent Types

Viewing events

You can easily see a summary of events we've detected at Events > Overview. You can see the counts by timeframe, target, type of event, and more.

To see a full list of the events and filter down to specific types of events, go to Events > List. You can view the details of any event on the list by clicking the magnifying glass icon.

You can filter events by timeframe or by using the search function. The search input matches the subject and details of the event. To limit to a specific detail, you can surround it in parentheses.

To limit results to a specific target, go to the Events > Overview and click the target you'd like to see events from.

Acting on events

Reviewing events is valuable for diagnosing issues based on when changes occurred, but when things change unexpectedly it often means you need to take action. There are a few ways you can use events to quickly respond to potential issues:


You can configure certain events to trigger an email alert any time they happen, and even filter those alerts to certain targets.
