View Assets in CSAM

The Inventory > Assets tab gives you asset information, such as identity, running services, installed software, open ports, users, and more. CyberSecurity Asset Management (CSAM) gives you deep visibility into your assets, granting you a detailed, multidimensional view of each one that encompasses both its IT and security data. You can flag issues such as configuration problems, security risks, IT policy violations, and regulatory non-compliance with an asset profile that includes a wealth of data.

You can see an overview of assets in your organization from the Assets tab.
