Help Center: Your Data and Importing

Active Accreditation currently supports only Nessus data and it must be in XML format. All other data types will be rejected by the system. You must use Credentialed Scans in order for Active Accreditation to work properly.

In future versions, we will strive to continue to adopt and support more data types to empower you to utilize a robust array of data points for a comprehensive model of your security posture.

Credentialed Scan

A credentialed scan is a type of scanning technique where a secured scanning of the system is performed to analyze the processes, configurations, and vulnerabilities of the computer networks. During a credentialed scan, users validate their identity by logging into the computer network with authenticated credentials and receive a definitive list of required patches and misconfigurations.
