About using sites

All assets and all Data Processing Service (DPS) instances are assigned to a site. Assets are always assigned to a single site. A DPS must be assigned to a site and can be assigned to more than one site. If a site has assets assigned, the site must have at least one DPS Collector assigned to collect data from the assets. Sites are created, assigned, and managed using the Control Compliance Suite console. Only users with appropriate privileges can make changes to sites.

All Control Compliance Suite deployments must include at least a single site. A default site is created when you install the Control Compliance Suite. You can create as many additional sites as you need. You can also rename or delete any site except the default site.


If a DPS is removed from a site, it cannot collect data from the assets assigned to that site.
