Organizations and Sites

Rumble uses the concept of Organizations and Sites to manage information within your account. An Organization represents a distinct entity; this can be your business, a specific department within your business, or one of your customers. All actions, tasks, agents, scans, and other objects managed by Rumble are tied to specific organizations and isolated from each other. Your active Organization can be switched by using the drop-down select field in the top right of the Rumble Console. Organizations can be created, modified, and deactivated from using the icon on the left-hand sidebar.

Every Organization has at least one Site, but may also have multiple Sites. A Site represents a distinct network segment, usually defined by addressing, or accessibility. All analysis actions within Rumble occur at the Site level. This allows for multiple Sites to use the same RFC1918 space, something common in retail, while still being possible to differentiate their assets within the Inventory. For flat networks, a single Site is usually enough, but complicated, sprawling, and highly-segmented environments benefit from the use of Sites. Sites can also be tied to specific Agents, which can help limit traffic between low-bandwidth segments. The Site configuration allows a default Scan Scope to be defined, along with an optional list of excluded Scan Scopes. These fields set the defaults for future scans of this Site.

By default, your account includes a single Organization, which itself contains a single Site, named Primary. The default site cannot be removed, but it can be renamed and have it’s assets purged as necessary.
