What's a site? What's an asset group? How is a static site different from a dynamic site? What is discovery? Is it the same as vAsset discovery? What's an unmanaged asset? What's a node? What's Total risk? And what about all those acronyms: CPE, CCE, SCAP, USGB…?

Every Nexpose customer document and the Help site include a comprehensive glossary of terms that you will find in Nexpose. It covers names for features, workflows, user roles, and industry-standard terms and concepts that are essential to using Nexpose effectively.

Entries are cross-referenced so that you can compare and contrast similar terms and get a better understanding . For example, if you look up Asset, you'll find convenient cross-references to Managed asset, Unmanaged asset, and node.  

The Doc team will keep building up the glossary. If you can't find a particular term that you're looking for, please let us know.

You can find Nexpose documents here in the Community by clicking the Documents tab. You can also download them from the Support page in Nexpose by clicking the Support link in the Web interface. You can find Help by clicking the Help link.
