Engaged Sweeper

Setting aside for the moment the constant NVD popup spam, I'm sort of blown away at how unusable the interface is for all of the Lansweeper Cloud Vulnerability content is.  The number of fields/columns available at any given level is terribly inconsistent and if you get a layer or two into anything you've lost all of the asset-relevant fields as filter options. 

The Risk Insights section ought to be where all the value is and instead its just an endless ghost-chasing exercise.  All value there is nullified to zero by the lack of filtering capabilities.  It's just all noise and the value add is negative relative to any other approach to this including manual efforts. 

99% of the reports and findings are just bloated with stale data from offline endpoints (e.g. laptops, tablets, etc.) and there's zilch in the way of practical filtering that is standard in other software of the sort to filter out endpoints that haven't been scanned in X days.  

Dashboard editor is similarly limited and little of it functions as you'd desire.  Things scale incorrectly such pie graphs will eat up any scale-up space rather than allowing for the legend/data to be viewable regardless of how large things are sized to be. 

At best you can maybe get an idea from the Risk Insights section of potentially vulnerable software and then use the Software section rather than the security sections to do the actual endpoint identification and targeting/evaluation as you can filter there based on a 'last seen' field which is MIA from the Risk Insight module entirely. 

Open to anyone's recommendations on how they've managed to squeeze value out of this as it's been a major disappointment so far.
