Getting Started with CORE


This document describes how to get started with the Outpost24 CORE interface.


The CORE is a way to centralize the data from all of our scanners such as NetSec, AppSec, and CloudSec in to one view and also providing a powerful tool to drill down in the data to help identify vulnerabilities in key systems.


To view the results in Outpost24 CORE, the user needs an exclusive license for CORE along with Netsec, Farsight and/or Appsec licenses.

Assets are unique hosts provided by the scanners or added automatically while creating a configuration. An asset can also be linked to a group of configurations. One asset can have multiple configurations that are 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.

For more information, see CORE Assets document.
