Filter by CVE Let’s start by filtering the view by common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE).
Filter servers by vulnerabilities Filter the dashboard to exclusively view servers that have corresponding CVE(s).
Filter by CVE results Two servers with different levels of risk have been identified as affected by the CVE that you selected. Now, let’s look at the applied iFixes for the first affected server on the list.
View applied iFixes View the list of iFixes that have been applied to a server, consolidated on a single screen, in this case for WebSphere name01.
View server details This screen gives access to detailed information for specific servers.
Server details Here the operator can see the WebSphere and JDK versions as well as all of the applied iFixes and relevant CVE(s) for this server, which is at a high risk level today.

Security alerts The security alerts tab provides immediate and consolidated access to critical information that is fundamental to maintaining secure operations. 
View all security alerts On this screen, each CVE is ranked by risk level and shown with the corresponding affected servers so that the highest risks and their impact are listed at the top, ready for resolution.
Affected servers Two servers in this screen have been identified as impacted by this CVE and labeled with the appropriate risk level.
View affected servers The dashboard is now filtered to show servers that have been identified as affected by that specific vulnerability.
