Because CylancePROTECT is part of the Virus scanning category, information from this event source will provide information to Notable Behaviors and Virus alerts.

Before You Begin

You must configure CylancePROTECT to forward its logs to a syslog server. Additionally, you must change several settings for the events to be collected by a SIEM, or the InsightIDR collector.

To make these changes in CylancePROTECT:

  1. Go to the CylancePROTECT Admin console and navigate to the "Settings" panel.
  2. Check the Syslog/SIEM box to enable this configuration.
  3. Choose which events you want to send to syslog and for InsightIDR to collect.
  4. Configure the other mandatory options.

Configure InsightIDR to collect data from the event source

After you complete the prerequisite steps and configure the event source to send data, you must add the event source in InsightIDR.

To configure the new event source in InsightIDR:

  1. From the left menu, go to Data Collection and click Setup Event Source > Add Event Source.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Search for Cylance Protect in the event sources search bar.
    • In the Product Type filter, select Virus Scan.
  3. Select the Cylance Protect event source tile.
  4. Choose your collector and event source. You can also name your event source if you want.
  5. Choose the timezone that matches the location of your event source logs.
  6. Optionally choose to send unparsed logs.
  7. Configure your default domain and any Advanced Event Source Settings.
  8. Select a collection method and specify a port and a protocol.
    • Optionally choose to Encrypt the event source if choosing TCP by downloading the Rapid7 Certificate.
  9. Click Save.
