Integrate IoT Security with Cisco Prime

Import select device details into IoT Security from Cisco Prime Infrastructure.
By integrating through Cortex XSOAR with Cisco Prime Infrastructure, IoT Security imports select information about the devices (or
endpoints
) it’s monitoring from Cisco Prime. A specified on-premises XSOAR engine fetches the following information from Cisco Prime and then sends it through the Cortex XSOAR cloud to IoT Security to incorporate into the data it has already gathered from network traffic and behavior analysis:
  • Connection type—wired or wireless
    If it’s a wired device:
    • Name and IP address of the switch with which the device is connected
    • Ethernet port on the switch to which the device is connected
    If it’s a wireless device:
    • Hostname and IP address of the switch that’s cabled to the AP (access point) serving the wireless device
    • Ethernet port number on the switch to which the AP is cabled
    • ID and name of the VLAN to which the device is assigned
With this information, IoT Security can provide more granular endpoint reports and better detection of misconfigurations and anomalies. For example, the following illustrations show information that IoT Security learned from Cisco Prime Infrastructure about a PACS station named GRADLT900:
  • Connection type: wireless
  • The hostname and IP address of the switch that’s cabled to the AP serving GRADLT900
  • The Ethernet port number on the switch to which the AP is cabled
  • The VLAN to which the PACS station is assigned
IoT Security can integrate with multiple Cisco Prime instances at one site or multiple sites, which is sometimes necessary for large deployments where a single Prime instance is not enough. In these cases, one or more XSOAR engines integrate with one or more of the Prime instances.
Make sure each XSOAR engine can form a network connection on TCP port 443 to the Prime instance with which it’s coupled. Then follow the instructions below to set up the integration between the two.
Integrating with Cisco Prime requires the purchase and activation of a third-party integration add-on. The basic integration plan includes a license for three integration add-ons, one of which can be used for Cisco Prime. The advanced plan includes a license for all supported third-party integrations.
