How do I create one or more hosts?

You can create a single host manually by adding it one by one, or create many hosts at once (discovery scan) by scanning an IP range asset and all live hosts will be added automatically as separate hosts into your asset list.

If you have a larger number of assets we recommend that you follow the instruction for adding multiple hosts. Notice that previously added hosts (manually or through a discovery scan) will not be overwritten when performing a discovery scan where the same IP exists.

Add a single host:

  1. Login to Security Center.
  2. Click Assets in the main menu.
  3. Click on +Add asset.
  4. Under the headline General information enter the following:
    • Business impact: this property is used for prioritizing vulnerabilities and used to calculate the Overall business risk in reports.
    • Type: here select Host which means single host.
    • Here you can also review:
      • IP addresses in subscription: the total number of IP addresses you can scan with your subscription.
      • IP addresses in use: the number of IP addresses in use, which is the number of assets you have.
  5. Under the headline Network addresses enter the following:
    • Asset name: a name for the asset, like Primary database server.
    • IP: the host's IP number.
  6. Under the headline Tags you search and check one or more tags that you want to add to the asset.
  7. Under the headline Host attribute enter the following:
    • Owner: select the owner of the asset.
    • Description: here you can enter a description for the asset.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Done!

Add multiple hosts - discovery scan:

  1. Login to Security Center.
  2. Click Assets in the main menu.
  3. Click on +Add asset.
  4. Under the headline General enter the following:
    • Business impact: this property is used for some prioritizing vulnerabilities and used to calculate the Overall business risk in reports.
    • Type: here select IP range and enter the range, e.g. 123.123.123/24, that can consist of one or many hosts.
      • IP addresses in subscription: the total number of IP addresses you can scan with your subscription.
      • IP addresses in use: the number of IP addresses in use, which is the number of assets you have.
  5. Under the headline Network addresses enter the following:
    • Asset name: a name for the asset, like Primary database server.
    • IP: the host’s IP number.
  6. Under the headline Tags you search and check one or more tags that you want to add to the asset.
  7. Under the headline Host attribute enter the following:
    • Owner: select the owner of the asset.
    • Description: here you can enter a description for the asset.
  8. Click OK.
  9. The next step is to scan the assets IP range to automatically create hosts. You can either schedule a recurrent scan or perform a scan once.
  10. As soon as the scan is done you will see hosts added in you asset list.
  11. Done!
