Version: InQuest Manager version 3.87.x or later

InQuest focuses its analysis on identifying, processing, and inspecting files downloaded over the web or received via email to detect malicious code in transit. In addition to threat detection, InQuest encounters sensitive data in motion like confidential documents and personally identifiable information.

Netsurion Open XDR facilitates monitoring events retrieved from the InQuest. It’s dashboard, category, alerts, and reports will benefit you in tracking possible attacks, suspicious activities, or any other threat noticed.

First, configure the InQuest to deliver events to the Netsurion Open XDR Manager, and then configure the dashboards and reports in Netsurion Open XDR.

The following are the key Data Source Integration available in Netsurion Open XDR.
