It is a difficult task for a system administrator or security engineer to determine where exploitable software is installed within their environment. How can they find the exploitable software installed in their environment. Well, Symantec Control Compliance Suite Vulnerability Manager (CCS-VM) can help. One of the great features within CCS-VM is the concept of a "Dynamic Asset Group". A Dynamic Asset Group allows users to filter assets based on a set of criteria.
 
Let's create a Dynamic Asset Group that contains all assets that have Adobe Reader installed, To create a Dynamic Asset Group follow the below steps:-
 
1) Open CCS-VM web console and login Into CCS-VM.
 
      
 
2) To create a new Dynamic Asset Group, click on the "New Dynamic Asset Group" icon on the main page of the CCS-VM dashboard.
 
    
 
3) I am creating a new Dynamic Assest Group based on the "Software Name". I enter Adobe Reader in the search field.
 
    
 
4) Click on Search button, here I got the list of all the hosts which have Adobe Reader installed and which matches our search.
 
    
 
 
So it's very easy for a system administrator or security engineer to determine where exploitable software is installed within their environment With Control Compliance Suite Vulnerability Manager (CCS-VM)
