Automatic Asset Joining With Netsec


This document describes the ways assets are automatically joined in the Portal.

Technical Preview

This document is a technical preview of a feature that is currently under development and may be hidden behind a feature flag.


Assets in Portal is a collection of of unique identifies that combined together makes up an asset, for example a web server will have a mac address, an IP, and a hostname. With the asset concept these are all tied together into one unit called Assets.

Automatic Asset Joining

Assets are constructed using a micro service that through different heuristics evaluate the matching between the asset identifiers found during a scan with the already existing assets in the database.

There are several different types of identifiers such as:

  • IP
  • Hostname
  • MAC

If multiple matches are found, the one with the highest score will be selected. If the service determines that none match ?enough? a new asset is established instead.

Assets related to SWAT, Snapshot, and Assure subscriptions will never be joined with assets constructed by the other products.
