You can add your own business context to assets by tagging them with descriptive metadata in Tenable Vulnerability Management. An asset tag is primarily composed of a Category:Value pair. For example, if you want to group your assets by location, create a Location category with the value Headquarters. You can then manually apply the tag to individual assets, or you can add rules to the tag that enable Tenable Vulnerability Management to apply the tag automatically to matching assets.

Note: If you want to create tags without individual categories, Tenable recommends that you add the generic category Category, which you can use for all your tags.
