It manages and monitors network devices and their functions. SNMP version 3  has improved security and privacy. You can run an SNMP (version 3) discovery job for assets. All network devices configured with SNMP version 3 will be discovered in such a scan. If you wish to do so, you can also onboard the discovered assets.
