Prisma Cloud Compute Connector Guide

How to set up and use the Prisma Cloud Compute connector in Ivanti Neurons RBVM/ASOC.

Overview

Prisma Cloud - Compute delivers cloud workload protection (CWPP) for modern enterprises, providing holistic protection across hosts, containers, and serverless deployments in any cloud, throughout the application lifecycle.

The Ivanti Neurons RBVM/ASOC platform provides an API-based connector that integrates with Prisma Cloud - Compute, enabling customers to bring in their findings. It allows customers to gain visibility into their overall risk due to vulnerabilities in their endpoint and a more straightforward, more efficient way to manage those vulnerabilities.

User Prerequisites/Prisma Cloud - Compute Setup

Ivanti Neurons requires a user account with the following access to communicate with and pull data from Prisma Cloud - Compute.

  • Read access to the assets and their associated issues.
  • API access.
  • The Ivanti Neurons integration supports the Self-Hosted/SaaS version of Prisma Cloud – Compute.

Under Connector Specific options, Users can optionally turn on Enable auto URBA (Update Remediation by Assessment).

Suppose Enable auto URBA (Update Remediation by Assessment) is turned on. In that case, we have an optional sub configuration, where the user can configure URBA to close the findings associated with assets that are no longer available. This textbox allows only whole numbers and specifies the number of consecutive uploads Ivanti Neurons must wait until the asset is no longer available. If the assets are not coming in as part of the specified consecutive uploads, then Ivanti Neurons will close the associated findings of the asset.

On marking the Create Assets that do not have vulnerabilities options, Ivanti Neurons will create assets with zero findings. This option will be selected by default, and the user can opt to turn it off.

Prisma Cloud Connector - Connector Specific Options

Users can specify the type of vulnerability information from Prisma Cloud - Compute into Ivanti Neurons. The default option is All Data.

If the user clicks on Select Data, they can choose the type of asset data that needs to be pulled into Ivanti Neurons.

  • Host Security: Under this, we can pull Vulnerabilities/Compliance findings.
  • Image Security: Under this, we can pull Vulnerabilities/Compliance findings.

Prisma Cloud Connector - Pull Vulnerability Information

Click the Save button to save the connector’s configuration and create the connector. Once saved, the connector is visible on the Integrations page under Currently Configured Integrations.

Clicking the History button displays the connector details for each pull. The Sync button allows users to perform on-demand sync. The Edit button allows the user to edit the connector configuration. The Delete button allows the user to delete the connector.
