Companies

Introduction to companies

Companies can be one level of specificity within your organization's structure. Creating and using companies in your application allows you to view data with business context. Vulnerabilities are associated to hosts, which are associated with the rest of the structure in a chain: Host > Business Service > Business Unit > Division > Company > Location. Data can then be sorted on reports and searches so that users can view, e.g. vulnerabilities by company.

The way different pieces of the organizational structure relate to each other can by modified by changing the reference attributes on each organizational data model.

Navigating to Administration > Organization > Companies will take you to the Manage Companies page, which displays a list view of companies and allows for the creation of new ones.
