Before you configure the Sophos Enterprise Console integration, you must have the IP Address of the USM Anywhere Sensor.

You must download and install the Sophos Reporting Log Writer to complete this task. Follow the instructions in the Sophos Reporting Log Writer user guide to download and install the Log Writer.

The Sophos Enterprise Console plugin leverages NXLog to send data to USM Anywhere. Therefore, you must also install NXLog on your Sophos Enterprise Console.
