Get Ready


To expedite the full installation of Asset Manager IPsonar and enable you to produce actionable cybersecurity intelligence about your organization quickly, ensure the following:

  • You are a licensed user of Asset Manager IPsonar
  • You will deploy Asset Manager IPsonar to a virtual machine (VM)
  • You will initialize the system remotely via SSH.
  • You have login credentials to Asset Manager's SFTP site.
  • You know or can find out the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway for your host.

If you do not meet these prerequisites because you are upgrading from a previous IPsonar release, see Upgrade Path & Process page. If you are unlicensed, intend to configure an physical IPsonar appliance rather than deploy a virtual machine (VM), will not be accessing the IPsonar system over SSH, lack login credentials or access to other essential network address information, please contact us for assistance.
