Purpose

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

Introduction

The Unified View 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.


Prerequisites

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