Data Collection

With this feature enabled, InsightCloudSec collects:

  • Expanded anonymous product data; for example: numbers of specific resource types, totals of active Insights, and specific cloud types. This data helps us determine how and where our features are being used.
  • We also collect anonymous information around navigation within our tool. We are able to observe navigation with all PII and customer data completely masked. This data is extremely helpful in the analysis of overall navigation and user experience workflows. It allows us to observe and replicate errors so we can track the steps taken that result in a broken workflow or poor user experience.

With this feature disabled, InsightCloudSec only collects license validation and high level counts around generic product metadata (e.g., number of organizations, number of Insights, etc.)


All Data Collection is Anonymous

As explained in the examples provided above, all data is anonymous and collected with the sole intention of improving our product and user experience. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to us through the Customer Support Portal.

Additional information pertaining to Billable Instances is organized into two different tables below the graph:
