The Assets view allows you to view and manage all of your assets. You can quickly see which assets are new or updated, which class the asset belongs to, and other useful asset information.

Important: Because they do not include a hardware ID attribute, Microsoft Entra ID devices managed by Microsoft Intune's mobile device management (MDM) are not visible in the Tenable Inventory Assets view.

To access the Assets view:

  1. Access the Inventory View view.

    The Assets view appears by default.

Important: Because a Person can have more than one Account, Tenable Inventory automatically applies a default filter to hide account class assets from this view. This reduces confusion and avoids the appearance of duplicate assets in your asset list.
To view all assets including accounts, remove the filter from the top of the list:

Additionally, when you search or filter the asset list, Tenable Inventory automatically removes the default filter to ensure your search query results are accurate. For more information about asset classes, see Asset Classes.

In the Assets view, you can:

  • View the total number of assets within your container.

  • View the total number of new assets discovered within the last 7 days.

  • View the total number of updated assets within your container in the last 7 days.

  • In the class drop-down, filter the asset list by a specific asset class. For more information, see Asset Classes.

    The asset numbers at the top of the page and the asset list update accordingly.

  • Use the search box above the asset list to search for a specific asset in the list.

  • View a list of your assets, including the following information:

    • Name — The asset identifier. Tenable Inventory assigns this identifier based on the presence of certain asset attributes in the following order:

      1. Agent Name (if agent-scanned)

      2. NetBIOS Name

      3. FQDN

      4. IPv6 address

      5. IPv4 address

      For example, if scans identify a NetBIOS name and an IPv4 address for an asset, the NetBIOS name appears as the Asset Name.

    • AES — The Asset Exposure Score for the asset. The AES represents the asset's relative exposure as an integer between 0 and 1000. A higher AES indicates higher exposure.

      Note: Tenable Inventory does not calculate an AES for unlicensed assets.

    • Class — The class type associated with the asset. For more information, see Asset Classes.

    • Weaknesses — The weaknesses associated with the asset. For more information, see Weaknesses.

      Tip: Click on a Weakness count to navigate directly to the Weaknesses view.
    • Number of tags — The number of tags applied to the asset. For more information on tagging an asset, see Tag Assets via the Assets View.

    • Last updated — The date and time at which the asset was last updated.

    • Sources — The application the asset originated from, for example, Tenable Vulnerability Management.
