Severity Filter

The severity filter allows the user to spot the findings with their severity level. There are four severity levels in the ACS platform e.g. Critical severity, High severity, Medium severity, and low severity.

Region filter

Different assets might belong to different regions e.g. US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), etc. So the region filter allows the user to spot the findings of different regions’ assets.

Service filter

The service filter allows the user to spot the findings by different cloud services of his account e.g. ec2 instance, s3 bucket, lambda function, iam, etc.

Compliance family filter

All the assets of a cloud account are evaluated against 474 rules in the ACS platform. These 474 rule belongs to 13 different compliance family e.g. SOC 2, FedRAMP Low Revision 4, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), CIS v1.4.0, RBI Cyber Security Framework, PCI v3.2.1, HIPAA, etc. The compliance family filter allows users to spot the findings of these compliance families.


Remediation is the most exciting feature of the findings page. By clicking the remediation button the user can find the remediation of the findings. View more about remediation {Remediation doc will be linked here}
