About Machine View

Machine View is an extremely powerful and flexible tool. It enables you to display current information about every machine in your network that has been previously scanned and whose information resides in the database. It organizes all of the scanned machines so they are displayed in one comprehensive view, regardless of when the machines were scanned. Machine View provides an easier method to both view and manage the current security state— across both agent-based and agentless systems. Machine View differs from Scan View, which requires you to first locate the scan in which the machine was assessed before drilling down to view the machine’s scan summary.

The advantages of Machine View include:

You are not restricted to viewing just those machines involved in a particular scan. You can view all the machines that have ever been scanned.

You can quickly assess the status of all machines in your organization.

You can view patch and asset information at the same time. With Scan View you can only view patch information.
