Getting Started with the Kenna Platform

Once you have access to Kenna, you can start exploring and learning about the platform. Check out the attached pdf below for the complete Kenna Getting Started Guide!


Implementing a platform like Kenna Security that offers so much in terms of value and functionality can be a truly daunting task. Even with training and an abundance of help articles that are publicly available, having a rounded understanding of the platform can still feel elusive. This document aims to serve as a guide to introduce concepts that are fundamental to working in the platform, as well as instructions for carrying out some common tasks and activities in Kenna. As much as possible, topics build on already covered ideas and so should be of great value to a person who has minimal exposure to the Kenna platform. For individuals already familiar with Kenna, it can still serve as a reference to review a forgotten concept, or how a particular task is done.

Items to be covered in this documentation includes the following:

  1. Overview of the Kenna platform - Dashboard, Explore, AppSec, Settings
  2. Common Concepts – Asset Statuses in Kenna, Vulnerability Statuses in Kenna, Risk Meters / Asset Searches, Asset prioritization, Scoring in Kenna - Vulnerability score, Asset Score, Risk Meter Score
