  1. Reviewing Requirements: Before beginning, it’s crucial to understand what you’ll need for a successful setup.

  3. Configuring Cato Networks in InsightIDR: This step involves setting up the Cato Networks event source within InsightIDR.
  4. Verification: Finally, it’s important to verify that the configuration is functioning correctly.

Detailed Setup process

Understanding the RequirementsTo get started, you’ll need:

  • Access to a Cato Networks account with Editors access.
  • An API Key.
  • An Account ID.

Creating an API Key and Account IDHere's how to do it:

  1. Accessing Account Information: Log into your Cato Networks Editors Account and note down your Account ID, which can be found in the URL, such as <https://rapid7.catonetworks.com/#!/1234/topology.>
  2. Navigating to API Management: Within the Cato Networks interface, go to the Administration section and select API Management.
  3. API Key Generation: Create a new API key by naming it and applying it. A window displaying the new API key will appear.

  5. Enabling Event Feed: On the API Management page, activate the Event Feed to allow your account to send events to the Cato API servers.
