Security Center supports adding tags for assets, which helps you filter assets with the same attributes. This topic describes how to add asset importance tags, and add, modify, and delete custom tags for a server and a cloud product.

Background information

Security Center provides the following asset importance tags to classify the assets. You can select appropriate asset importance tags as needed.

An asset importance tag is transformed to the corresponding asset importance score that is used to calculate the score of the urgency to fix a vulnerability. Asset importance score affects the score of the urgency to fix a vulnerability. You can determine whether to prioritize the repair of a vulnerability based on the score of the urgency to fix a vulnerability. If you add an Important Assets tag for core assets, Security Center prompts you to fix vulnerabilities as soon as possible. The following table shows the relation between asset importance tags and asset importance scores. For more information, see Vulnerability priorities.

Type Asset importance score Recommendation
Important Assets 1.5 Assets that are related to core businesses and store core business data. Virus intrusion adversely affects the business system and causes major losses.
General Assets 1 Assets that are related to non-core businesses and are highly replaceable. Virus intrusion causes less effect on the system.
Test Assets 0.5 Assets for performance test, or assets that cause fewer effect on the system.
Note If you do not add asset importance tags, the tag for each asset is set to General Assets by default, which specifies the asset importance score is 1.
