Right away you will see that USM Anywhere has collected information about the systems in your environment and any threat indicators associated with them. Here we can see that we have sensors deployed in AWS cloud and in the on-premises ESXi environments.
The dash boards give you summary views of what is happening in your hybrid environment that includes alarms, vulnerabilities, and events; prioritized to help you schedule your work. Or you can narrow the view to look for details specific to your Cloud environment.
If we look deeper into an alarm, we can see the details associated with the events that triggered the alarm as well as recommended remediation steps.
The asset view can be filterable by many parameters including categories like has alarms, has vulnerabilities or by operating system. If we select an assets full details, we see even more information, like configuration issues, alarms, discovered vulnerabilities, software and services available on the asset, and events associated with that asset.
You also have the ability to start and schedule recurring scans to continuously assess changes in configurations, software and services, and the vulnerabilities on the assets. To do that, first ensure that you have applied credentials to that asset, create a new scan job, then specify how frequently and when you want the scans to occur. Click save, that’s it, easy.
Now you can see how quick and easy it is to get started with USM Anywhere. In under 30 minutes, you can have USM Anywhere detecting threats and delivering actionable intelligence, to help you secure your on-premises, cloud, and Hybrid environments.
