AlienVault® USM Anywhere™

Deleting the Assets

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst   Manager

Keep in mind these points when your environment has an AWS Sensor, Azure Sensor, or a VMware Sensor installed:

  • USM Anywhere scans EC2 instances, VMware virtual machines, and Azure virtual machines every 20 minutes.
  • You can manually delete an asset from USM Anywhere, but if the asset is still included in an AWS, Azure, or VMware environment, the asset will be automatically added to your asset inventory after the following scan.
  • You can delete an asset from USM Anywhere, but if the IP of the asset is up and running and you run an asset discovery after deleting the asset, this asset will be automatically added to your asset inventory.

Important: Keep in mind that if you terminate an AWS instance, an Azure virtual machine, or a VMware virtual machine, any assets that have vulnerabilities associated with them will not be automatically deleted when the discovery scan finds them terminated in AWS, Azure, or VMware vCenter/vSphere.
