Article summary

Shodan - Enrich Asset Data enriches each of the assets that are the results of the query with additional data from Shodan, such as: hostname, ports open to the world, vulnerabilities, address information (country, region, city), ISP, and more.
The data enrichment is done per device based on its public IP address (IPv4).
