Get Started with Networks

Do you have overlapping IPs? You can now manage overlapping IP ranges within your subscription. This allows you to define discrete private networks to keep overlapping blocks isolated from each other. We'll help you get started. There's just a couple steps.

Common use cases:

- M&A events
- Air gap networks
- Business continuity/disaster recovery
- Development/test environments
- IaaS environments
- "Cloned" small office environments

Start Here

Go to Assets > Networks > New > Network (Manager only). Follow the wizard to give your network a friendly name and assign it one or more scanner appliances. These appliances will be used to scan the IP addresses in the network.

Click the down arrow to load the list of appliances. Note that only the first 100 appliances, sorted alphabetically by name, appear in the list. If your appliance is not listed, enter a search string and a list of appliances that match your input string appears. Ensure that you enter at least three characters to initiate the search.

Note: Each scanner appliance can be included in only one network.

Organize assets by network

Create asset groups and associate them with your network. Go to Assets > Asset Groups > New > Asset Group. Give your group a name, select a network, and then add assets to it. Tip - Each asset group can be associated with only one network. Once the asset group is saved, you cannot change its network assignment.

I'm ready to scan my network. What are the steps?

Go to Scans > New > Scan. Select the network you want to scan, select All Scanners in Network (or a scanner appliance name), and identify target IP addresses. You can launch a scan on one network at a time.

Which IPs can I scan?Which IPs can I scan?

All IPs in your account are available for scanning.

Where can I see host scan data?Where can I see host scan data?

Once your scan is finished and the results are processed you can view the host scan data. Go to Assets > Host Assets, expand the network, identify the IP address, and view the host information. If the same IP address is scanned in a different network then it will have its own set of host scan data.

Note: If Asset Group Management Service (AGMS) is enabled for your subscription, you will see the Address Management tab instead of Host Assets. To understand the changes that happen when AGMS is enabled for your subscription, refer to Introducing AGMS.

Want to scan IPs on your network perimeter?Want to scan IPs on your network perimeter?

Choose the Global Default Network. This is the only network that can be scanned using our external scanners.

Tell me about reporting

Go to Reports and launch a new report from the Reports list or run a template from the Templates list. You have the option to filter reports by network or include IPs across all networks.

How do I report on IPs in one network only?How do I report on IPs in one network only?

There's a couple of ways you can do this. 1) Enter the IPs/ranges you want to report on and select a network name from the drop-down. Your report will be filtered to the selected network only. 2) Select only asset groups that belong to the network you're interested in.

Can I create a report including IPs on different networks?Can I create a report including IPs on different networks?

Yes. You can:

1) Enter the IPs/ranges you want to report on and select the "All" network option. We'll report on the IPs across all of the networks in your account.

2) Select asset groups that belong to different networks.

Will the network be identified in my report?Will the network be identified in my report?

Yes. We'll display the network name next to each IP address in your report for quick identification.
