AlienVault® USM Anywhere™

The AlienVault Agent

USM Anywhere enables you to deploy agents on your assets. Through an agent you can monitor locally connected end user hosts and servers in cloud and on-premise environments.

When a deployed agent does not have an associated asset, you must make this association in USM Anywhere in order to enable queries and log collection for the host system. The Agents page displays an alert when there are one or more unassociated assets and provides tools designed to help you associate these agents with assets. It provides a list of suggested assets for selection and an easy way to create a new asset using the information provided by the agent. In case you have agents that are not associated with any asset, see Agent and Asset Associations.

Important: You need to install the USM Anywhere Agent and deploy it. See AlienVault Agent Installation on Linux Hosts and AlienVault Agent Installation on Windows Hosts.
