Labels & Business Units


You can add labels to projects from the settings for more advanced filtering options. For example, a user may use the label Payment to filter the projects which have been associated with that label. You can also associate labels with global security criteria presets to automatically apply the global preset in the projects with the specified label.


There are eight built-in labels: Severity Plus, Severity Minus, Payment, Secrets, Sensitive Data, GDPR, Internal and DB Access. It is also possible to create custom labels with custom color codes.

Labels can be added to projects in the Info step when adding or editing a project.

It is also possible to give Risk Values to the labels, which can be used while arranging Business Criticality Thresholds structure.

Business Units

Business units are label-like elements associated with products to create custom hierarchies within the organization. Multiple products can be grouped under a business unit. Business units are related to products in the product editing section.


Only products and manager accounts can have business units.

Business Units can be added to products and manager accounts in the info step when adding or editing a product and a manager account.

There are two prominent use cases of business units;

  • You can use them to filter the organization dashboard based on business units.
  • They can be associated with manager-level users to create a custom view for managers who want to track the progress of respective business units. This action occurs when a new user with the manager role is created manually (as seen in the screenshot below) or fetched from a single-sign-on tool. A user can be associated with multiple business units.
