From the Cortex XDR management console, you can manage your different network assets.

Cortex XDR provides a central location from which you can view and investigate information relating to assets in your network. Using your defined internal network configurations, Broker VM Network Mapper, Cortex XDR agent, EDR data collected from firewall logs, and logs from third-party vendors, Cortex XDR is able to aggregate and display a list of all the assets located within your network. As soon as Cortex XDR begins receiving network assets, you can view the data in AssetsAsset Inventory.

The following are some of the main features available to you on these pages.
