Version: Cisco Switch series 2600, 2800, 1900, 2900, 3900, 4500, 6500 with IOS 12.x and 15.x
Switches are used to connect multiple devices together on the same network. In a properly designed network, LAN switches are responsible for directing and controlling the data flow at the access layer to networked resources.
Netsurion Open XDR compiles and inspects critical events from Cisco switches to provide an insight on traffic anomalies, link flaps etc.
Netsurion Data Source Integrations for Cisco Switch allows you to monitor the following components:-
- Operations – Port status changes, Administrative and Network activity.
- Security – User logon behavior, VTP management, VLAN management
- Compliance – User authentication failures, Configuration changes.
Once Cisco Switch is configured to deliver events to Netsurion Open XDR Manager; alerts, dashboards and reports can be configured into Netsurion Open XDR.
The following are the key Data Source Integration available in Netsurion Open XDR.
|Operations||Cisco Switch – Interface down or detached||This alert is generated when interface down or detached event occurs.|
