Organizing Assets into Asset Groups

It's best practice to identify, prioritize and organize assets into logical asset groups. By doing so, you can limit the scope of network security audits to subsections of your network, making scan results and remediation tasks more manageable. You can also more easily distribute assets to multiple users to facilitate the delegation of responsibilities.

Optionally, you may wish to go one step further and organize asset groups into business units. By doing so, you can grant management responsibilities to dedicated Unit Managers. Unit Managers are tasked with overseeing assets and users within their respective units.

The asset management process is outlined in the diagram below.
