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. Tip - 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.

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?

Can I create a report including IPs on different networks?

Will the network be identified in my report?
