Purpose

This document describes Assets.

Introduction

Assets are uniquely identified either physical or virtual devices and IT resources like, servers, laptops, containers, container images, cloud accounts etc.

These assets are currently sourced from other Outpost24 offerings:

  • Outpost24 Netsec
  • Outpost24 Cloudsec

Since the risks associated with those assets contribute to the overall security posture of the business, the Assets view provides a quick way of assessing the criticality of the assets and helps with the prioritization efforts.

The Assets Tab

Clicking on the cards in the dashboard displays a table of assets.

OptionDescription
Age *Number of days since the findings are detected on the asset.
AppStak UUIDThe unique identifier of the AppStak the Assets belongs to.
Asset Name *Name of the asset.
Business Criticality *

This is a value the user can set on the targets in OUTSCAN that show up in Unified View on assets:

  • Critical
  • High
  • Medium
  • Low

See Unified View Dashboard for more information.

This result affects the risk calculation.

Category  *

Which category the asset belongs to. See Unified View Configure Categories for more information.

Exposed *

Exposure identifies whether the asset is directly reachable on the internet and therefor increase the risk of the asset. If the address is private, then the default is no.

This result affects the risk calculation.

Findings *

Number of findings associated with that asset.

See Unified View Findings for more information.

Last Scan *When the last scan was performed.
PlatformAssets OS platform
Risk *

Risk level on a scale from A to F where F represents the most critical risks.

An Asset's risk is calculated based on:

  1. Business criticality (priority)

  2. Exposure

  3. The single most critical finding (weakest link) on the asset

Sources *From where are the assets discovered. NETSEC, APPSEC, and CLOUDSEC. More then one can be present on the same asset.
Tags *

See Unified View Filters and Tags for more information.

UUIDThe unique identifier of the Asset.
