Configure AlienApp for CrowdStrike Falcon in USM Anywhere

To enable the AlienApp for CrowdStrike Falcon

  1. In USM Anywhere, go to Data Sources > AlienApps.
  2. Click the Available Apps tab.

The HTTPS connections to the API will originate from this sensor, so it is important to make sure the sensor has network access to the AlienApp API endpoints.
