In Tenable Vulnerability Management, assets are defined as network entities that potentially represent security risks. Assets can include laptops, desktops, servers, routers, mobile phones, virtual machines, software containers, and cloud instances. Tenable Vulnerability Management allows you to track assets that belong to your organization, helping to eliminate potential security risks, identify under-utilized resources, and support compliance efforts.

Use the API to list assets, get individual asset information, import assets, and list and check the status of asset import jobs.
