Use projects to manage findings and information pertaining to your penetration tests and vulnerability scans.

What does a project represent?

A project often represents a single vulnerability scan or penetration test. In some cases, a project contains findings from a set of related scans or tests. For example, you might have completed penetration testing on group of web servers on the same network. You can create a separate project for each individual web server test or you can create a single project that contains all of the web server tests.

In another example, you might have an application that undergoes testing on a regular basis. Although you could separate each test into its own project, you might want to use a single project for continuous testing.
