NSM is a centralized management application that addresses automation, control, and visibility of your security elements. It uses a tiered, or layered, approach to managing complex inter-related information. Understanding how the tasks and commands are grouped on the interface can help you effectively navigate to the commands and views you need.
Many of the elements across the tool have been unified. For example, the Inventory table looks similar to the Templates table. Once you know how to navigate one you can easily navigate others. This section describes the layout and the common navigation tools and icons used throughout NSM.
