runZero Asset Management

runZero Vulnerability Management Integration

Integration Overview

runZero is an asset inventory and network visibility solution that helps organizations find and identify managed and unmanaged assets connected to their networks and in the cloud.

Integration with runZero Asset Discovery enables you to sync your asset data contained in the runZero console to the Nucleus Asset Inventory. By connecting your vulnerability scan results with other sources of asset information, you gain key insights useful in the Vulnerability Management process.

Nucleus automatically imports your runZero tags as nested Nucleus Asset Groups, so you can utilize your existing organizational hierarchy from runZero. This allows you to implement filters and automation rules from your runZero data on your vulnerability scan results.
