Evaluation Of Results from Policy Monitor Questions


You can evaluate the results that are returned from a policy monitor question in JSA Risk Manager.

Approving a result of a question is similar to tuning your system to inform JSA Risk Manager that the asset that is associated with the question result is safe or can be ignored in the future.

When a user approves an asset result, the policy monitor sees that asset result as approved, and when the policy monitor question is submitted or monitored in the future, the asset is not listed in the question results. The approved asset does not display in the results list for the question unless the approval is revoked. The policy monitor records the user, IP address of the device, reason for approval, the applicable Device/Rule, and the date and time.

Policy monitor results that are approved are not returned from policy monitor questions. Approve results to policy monitor questions that don't represent risk in your network.
