Network asset visibility is a crucial investigative tool in discovering rogue devices in your network and preventing malicious activity. Understanding how many managed and unmanaged assets are part of your network provides you with vital information to better assess your security exposure and track network communication.
Cortex XDR Network Configuration provides an accurate representation of your network assets by collecting and analyzing the following network resources.
User-defined IP Address Ranges and Domain Names associated with your internal network
EDR data collected by Firewall Logs
Cortex XDR Agent Logs
Broker VM Network Mapper
Pathfinder Data Collector
In addition to the network resources, Cortex XDR allows you to configure in your Windows Agent Profile a Cortex XDR agent scan of your endpoints using Ping that provides updated identifiers of your network assets, such as IP addresses and OS platforms. The scan is automatically distributed by Cortex XDR to all the agents configured in the profile and cannot be initiated by request.
With the data aggregated by Cortex XDR Network Configuration you can locate and manage your assets more effectively and reduce the amount of research required to.
Distinguish between assets managed and unmanaged by a Cortex XDR agent.
Identify assets that are part of your internal network.
