- Policy Recommendation ScansArmor scans the hosts’ operating system, installed applications, Windows registry, open ports, directory listings, file system, any running processes and services. If vulnerabilities or outdated rules are detected, recommended policy changes will be provided to the customer or the customer can choose to have those changes automatically implemented.
- Log and Data Management Armor can ingest additional log sources to be analyzed and correlated against threats. These sources include event logs from cloud-native sources, network appliances and security devices. With the Log Search and Visualization feature, customers can do deep querying and analysis, create custom dashboards, and produce charts, graphs and custom reports of their data sets. Armor has also added Security Incident Connectors so that a security event or incident, discovered by Armor, can easily be ingested and analyzed by the customer’s internal security tools.
