Microsoft Azure Connector
The Microsoft Azure Connector provides real-time visibility and inventory of assets in Microsoft Azure accounts.
To import and analyze information about assets in Microsoft Azure, you must configure Azure to support connectors and then create an Azure connector in Tenable Vulnerability Management.
To assess Azure assets for vulnerabilities, Tenable recommends that you use Frictionless Assessment to assess for vulnerabilities in the cloud. Alternatively, you can run a Nessus scanner or agent scan, both of which run plugins locally on the host.

The cloud connector discovers Azure assets without assessing them for vulnerabilities. Optionally, you can scan discovered assets later using a Nessus scanner or agent scan.
