Abstract

View your cloud resources that were ingested through the Prisma Cloud integration for Cortex Xpanse.

The Prisma Cloud integration for Cortex Xpanse enables Expander to ingest cloud context from Prisma Cloud for for the following providers:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)

  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

  • Microsoft (MS) Azure

  • Alibaba Cloud

Expander identifies services and creates alerts and incidents based on the ingested context and uses the data to identify the following categories of cloud assets:

  • Managed Prisma Cloud—Cloud assets that were discovered by Xpanse and are supported and present in your Prisma Cloud inventory. For example, if Xpanse finds a service on AWS that is also in Prisma Cloud, the asset is considered Managed Prisma Cloud.

  • Unmanaged Prisma Cloud—Cloud assets that were discovered by Xpanse but are not present or supported in your Prisma Cloud inventory. For example, if Xpanse finds a service on HiNet, it is considered Unmanaged Prisma Cloud because it is not one of the supported providers. If Xpanse finds a service on a MS Azure asset that is not in Prisma Cloud, it is also considered Unmanaged Prisma Cloud

Incidents and alerts have a Cloud Management Status field that enables you to filter and sort on Managed Cloud and Unmanaged Cloud.

Note

Unmanaged Cloud Dashboard

The Unmanaged Cloud dashboard provides an overview of Cortex Xpanse-discovered services and alerts that are not under the management of your Prisma Cloud deployment. The data on this dashboard will help you quantify the scope and risk of your unmanaged Prisma Cloud services, and provide actionable details on services that may need to be brought under Prisma Cloud management.

The Unmanaged Cloud dashboard also provides insights into services and alerts that are under the management of your Prisma Cloud deployment.
