AlienVault® USM Anywhere™

Requirements for USM Anywhere Sensor Deployment on Azure

To ensure that you can successfully deploy USM Anywhere in your Azure subscription and monitor all of your Azure resources, make sure you have the following available in your Azure environment:

  • An Azure account with privileges in the resource group or subscriptions in which you want to install the USM Anywhere Sensor

    Note: You can deploy a single USM Anywhere Sensor to monitor all of your Azure resource groups. To do this, you must assign the application you create to the entire subscription.

  • Administrative access to Active Directory within Azure

    This Active DirectoryActive Directory (AD) is a directory service that Microsoft developed for Windows domain networks. access allows you to create an application required to install resource groups or a subscription for monitoring.

  • A virtual network inside the resource group
  • A subnet inside the virtual network
  • A storage account

Sensor Ports and Connectivity

For USM Anywhere Sensor deployment in the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), the Cloud Deployment Manager template automatically creates the firewall rules needed for network connectivity between the instances within the virtual private Cloud (VPC).

Note: The required firewall rules are outlined below.
