1.1. Introduction

ASGARD Management Center is the central management platform for THOR scans. It manages distributed THOR scans on thousands of systems, collects and forwards scan results.

The ASGARD Management Center can control and execute complex response tasks if needed. It features built-in response playbooks for quarantining endpoints creating and collecting triage packs, opening live remote command prompts and other actions incident response specialists will find useful.

ASGARD additionally provides an easy to use interface for creating custom multi-step response playbooks, which can execute any command on your endpoints and collect the respective outputs.

ASGARD Management Center is available as a virtual appliance and also as a hardware appliance. Both are based on Debian Bullseye and require a setup procedure in order to generate customized agent installers and cryptographic keys.

This document describes all functions and steps for the setup and operation of the ASGARD Management Center. It will describe how to add systems for scanning and performing individual or group scanning with separate parameters.
