Full-scale deployment

As you get started with runZero, we recommend kicking off with our standard deployment plan and adding tasks as needed. The standard deployment plan is broken out into six stages which will help you plan out your requirements, execute the deployment, and optimize your environment based on runZero’s best practices.


This first set of tasks will help your team identify target results, get ahead of potential blockers, and help you avoid misconfigurations within runZero.


Initial configuration

Once you have your plan in place, it’s time to execute and run your initial scans. Please note that these configuration tasks are in a prioritized order to help you avoid having to reconfigure things down the road.



Now that you have done some initial discovery, it’s time to review the results. Reviewing the results and leveraging our reports will help you expand scan scope, better understand your network, as well as help you identify key issues such as misconfigurations.


Advanced configuration / Optimization

After you’ve done your initial analysis, you will want to optimize your scans and configure integrations to further build your complete asset inventory.



Now that you have optimized your scans and have analyzed your runZero data, you can automate these tasks to avoid manual effort. You can leverage this automation to run scans on a recurring basis, automate queries, and generate alerting for the team.



As your runZero deployment comes to a close, you will want to ensure all users have gone through training and ensure anyone that would get value from runZero has access to the platform.


  • Add users
  • Ensure all users are trained on runZero
  • Identify other teams interested in the asset inventory data, such as:
    • Enterprise security team
      • runZero is typically used by security teams to achieve a complete asset inventory, find gaps in their vulnerability scanning and endpoint protection, as well as discover potential vulnerabilities.
    • IT Operations team
      • runZero is typically used by IT Operations teams to achieve a complete inventory of all assets across on-premise and cloud-based infrastructure. This allows the team to identify misconfigurations as well as report on assets in the environment by leveraging our searching and reporting capabilities.
    • Penetration testing team
      • runZero is typically used by penetration testing teams for conducting reconnaissance both internally and externally, identifying vulnerable targets, and finding ways to get to these vulnerable targets by using our reporting and searching capabilities.
