Assets Section

The Assets page provides a centralized view of the vulnerabilities discovered by the attached Nessus Network Monitors. On this page, vulnerabilities may be viewed in several categories, including assets, vulnerabilities, applications, operating systems, and connections. The results may also be exported in different formats for use in other programs.

Across all of the viewable methods available on the Assets page, filter options are available to increase granularity when viewing results. Click the heading of a column to sort items within that section in ascending or descending order.

Note: After deleting results, you must restart Industrial Security to see the most up-to-date information.

The Actions drop-down allows you to export or delete results, or apply/remove a label to/from multiple assets if one or more assets are selected.

Note: The Criticality column rates asset criticality from 1-5. 1 is the least critical, while 5 is the most critical.

The Filter <section name> box allows for quick filtering based on entered text for the Assets page. To view a list of filterable plugin attributes, click the down arrow for any quick filter text field. Results display based on a match of Any or All entered fields. The search field contains example hints when empty, but if an incorrect filter value is entered, the field displays a red border.

Tip: For instructions on performing the actions available on the Assets page, see the related How To section of this guide.
