The Cortex® Xpanse™ Cloud Monitoring Connector is a multi-purpose
You can use this integration to:
Add context to cloud assets and exposures that are only
available in AWS, such as instance ID and resource type.
Audit all publicly accessible AWS resources and any exposures
on those resources.
Compare what you are already tracking in your known IaaS accounts
with what Cortex Xpanse identifies independently. As part of attribution,
when using the Expander AWS Cloud Connector, Expander pulls public
resources from your AWS instances and then delineates between “AWS
Identified” and “Cortex Xpanse Identified” cloud assets. Expander
provides a great way to audit what you believe is running on AWS
and what Cortex Xpanse finds on AWS. You’re still covered even without
the AWS Cloud Connector since Cortex Xpanse still scans all AWS
Take down or move rogue assets from unsanctioned to sanctioned
Improve the visibility and effectiveness of security products
that use APIs to build the asset list they monitor.
