AlienVault® USM Anywhere™

Deployment Requirements

Before you deploy a USM Anywhere Sensor, you must configure your firewallVirtual or physical device designed to defend against unauthorized access to data, resources, or a private network. A firewall’s primary purpose is to create segregation between two or more network resources, blocking undesirable traffic between them. permissions to enable the required connectivity for the new sensor. Initial deployment of a sensor requires that you open egress or outbound ports and protocols in the firewall for communication with USM Anywhere and AT&T Cybersecurity Secure Cloud resources. The sensor receives no inbound connections from outside the firewall.

Note: To launch the USM Anywhere Sensor web user interface (UI) during the initial setup, you need to allow inbound traffic to the sensor IP address through TCP port 80. You can remove access to this port after the sensor successfully connects to USM Anywhere. You do not need to allow inbound traffic to this port from the Internet.

Each USM Anywhere Sensor has unique requirements. See the following topics for detailed information about these sensor-specific requirements:
