Vendor installation instructions


This data connector depends on a parser based on a Kusto Function to work as expected which is deployed as part of the solution. To view the function code in Log Analytics, open Log Analytics/Microsoft Sentinel Logs blade, click Functions and search for the alias CyclanePROTECT and load the function code or click here, on the second line of the query, enter the hostname(s) of your CyclanePROTECT device(s) and any other unique identifiers for the logstream. The function usually takes 10-15 minutes to activate after solution installation/update.

  1. Install and onboard the agent for Linux

Typically, you should install the agent on a different computer from the one on which the logs are generated.

Syslog logs are collected only from Linux agents.

  1. Configure the logs to be collected

Configure the facilities you want to collect and their severities.

  1. Select the link below to open your workspace agents configuration, and select the Syslog tab.

  2. Select Add facility and choose from the drop-down list of facilities. Repeat for all the facilities you want to add.

  3. Mark the check boxes for the desired severities for each facility.

  4. Click Apply.

  5. Configure and connect the CylancePROTECT

Use the IP address or hostname for the Linux device with the Linux agent installed as the Destination IP address.
