Asset Criticality Score

With GAV, you can apply tags manually or configure rules for automatic classification of your assets in logical, hierarchical, business-contextual groups. Assign Business Criticality through tags to establish priorities, and automatically calculate the asset criticality score of an asset based on highest aggregated criticality.

Once you've created tags with asset criticality score and added tags to the asset, the asset criticality score of the asset will be calculated. For more information related to defining asset criticality score for the tag, refer to the Configure Tags section.

In the following example, asset has three tags with asset criticality score - 5, 4, and 3. So the criticality score of the asset is 5 (the maximum asset criticality score among the three tags).

 If the tags associated with your assets do not have criticality score set, by default the asset criticality score '2' will be applied to that asset.
