User roles

The following list identifies the functional roles of TrueSight Vulnerability Management users and describes how those users interact with the product:

  • Operators—Responsible for day-to-day administration tasks in the data center, such as patching. In TrueSight Vulnerability Management, operators can define Remediation operations that can automatically run tasks in endpoint managers. Typically, those tasks are Patch Analysis Jobs in TrueSight Server Automation, rule changes in TrueSight Network Automation, or Software Updates in SCCM. When TrueSight Vulnerability Management is connected to an endpoint manager, users with access to the endpoint manager can also log onto TrueSight Vulnerability Management.

  • Endpoint administrators—Responsible for configuring and administering TrueSight Vulnerability Management, such as security groups and service level agreementsDuring the configuration process, an administrative role is specified. Any user of the endpoint manager who belongs to that role is considered an endpoint administrator.
  • Security administrators—Responsible for managing an organization's security infrastructure. Security administrators can use the Security Dashboard in TrueSight Vulnerability Management to identify situations that may require immediate attention and prioritize remediation actions.
