Azure Overview & Support

Getting Started with Azure and InsightCloudSec


New Azure Onboarding

Beginning with InsightCloudSec version 23.4.11, a new Azure onboarding experience is available. This experience replaces our previous onboarding process. Review Azure - Onboarding for more details.

As usual, if you have issues or need support reach out to us through the Customer Support Portal with any questions.

After InsightCloudSec is successfully installed, you're ready to enable visibility into your target Azure Management Group(s) and/or subscription(s). Review the sections below to determine the best starting point for your environment.

Azure Support

What does InsightCloudSec support from Azure?

As one of the leading public cloud service providers, InsightCloudSec provides broad support for Microsoft Azure. Review the full list of Azure-specific supported regions and services on the Azure Support Reference page.

How do I start seeing my Azure environment(s) in InsightCloudSec?

InsightCloudSec relies on a process called "harvesting" to pull data from various CSPs. Review Azure - Onboarding for details.

What do I do after my environment(s) is being harvested?

After at least one Azure account is harvested by InsightCloudSec, you're free to configure additional Azure features as necessary to enhance, optimize, or further secure your experience. Review Azure Additional Configuration for more information. You may also want to review the Azure Least Privileged Access (LPA) feature.

How can I optimize harvesting?

InsightCloudSec harvesting is the term we use to describe the process of data collection from a selected cloud service provider (CSP) within InsightCloudSec. Check out our Harvesting Overview documentation to understand the basics and refer to Harvesting Strategies for details on specific strategies.

In addition, InsightCloudSec offers Event-Driven Harvesting, which requires additional configuration but optimizes harvesting by only pulling in new data when certain Azure events occur. Review our Azure Event-Driven Harvesting documentation for more information.
