Adding New Credentials

You can add credentials in Secureworks® Taegis™ VDR in order to run authenticated scans.

Credentials can be associated to groups of assets through the use of tags (see Associating Credentials to Tags). All the assets categorized under the tag to which the credentials are associated will be scanned with authentication using these credentials.

To create new credentials for your organization, follow these steps:

  1. Access the System menu by selecting the Account circle in the upper right, and then choose Settings.
