Investigate an Asset

Investigate host insights, such as users, groups, services, drivers, hardware, and network shares.
The Asset View provides a powerful way to investigate assets by reducing the number of steps it takes to collect and research hosts. Cortex XDR automatically aggregates information on hosts and displays the host insights and a list of related incidents.
To investigate an asset:
  1. Open the Asset View for an asset.
    You can access the view from:
    • A host with Cortex XDR agent installed in Cortex XDR console by right-click >
      Open Asset View
      .
    • The IP View of an internal IP address with a Cortex XDR Agent by selecting Host Insights from the navigation bar.
    • The Quick Launcher, by searching for a specific Host Name.
  2. Review the Asset overview.
    The overview displays the host name and any related incidents.
    1. Review the Host name.
    2. Add an
      Alias
      or
      Comment
      to the host name.
    3. Review any related incidents:
      Related Incidents
      lists the most recent incidents that contain the host as part of the incident
      Key Artifacts
      according to the
      Last Updated
      timestamp. If the host belongs to an endpoint with a Cortex XDR agent installed, the incidents are displayed according to the host name. To dive deeper into specific incidents, select the Incident ID. To view all the related incidents, select
      View All
      .
  3. Filter the host information you want to display.
    Select from the following criteria to refine the scope of the host information you want to display. Each selection aggregates the displayed data.
