This document provides users with a comprehensive overview of the Assets. It is assumed that the reader has basic access to the OUTSCAN/HIAB account with Appsec subscription.


Assets are unique hosts found during the discovery stage or added automatically while creating a configuration. An asset can also be linked to a group of configurations. So, one asset can have hundreds of configurations which are being scheduled and scanned independently.

These assets are uniquely defined based on their IP or hostname. Their risk profile in form of top recommended solutions and risk charting provide a quick way of assessing the criticality of an asset, its association with other assets and already performed scans.


The Assets view lists all tracked IPs and hostnames. 

To customize the view,

  1. Click on Filter icon to see the available columns and filtering options. See Common Settings, for more information. 
  2. Add desired columns by clicking on the Show/Hide Column icon.

Select an asset to view its details on the right side of the window.
