Asset Management Workflow

Assets are automatically created or updated whenever a scan completes or scan results are imported. We attempt to match incoming scan data to existing assets using a complex algorithm. This algorithm looks at numerous attributes of the scanned hosts and then employs a variety of heuristics to choose the best possible match. If we cannot find a match, we assume this is the first time we have encountered the asset and we create a new record for it. Otherwise, if we find a matching asset, we update any properties that have changed since the last time we encountered the asset.
