The Device Collector option automatically collects any devices assigned to it with no need for you to manually enter hostnames and IP addresses into scans.

The Device Collector option is useful for security management as it automates the process as well as dynamically responds to your changing infrastructure and network. This is ideal for IT managers who use management tools that beSECURE integrates with (Amazon, Azure, Tufin, Atera, etc.).

Using the Device Collector allows users to have hosts assigned to each vendor (for example, to Azure servers) to be scanned without needing to manually add the hosts in the scan range. After the integration is complete, beSECURE automatically extracts the hosts from each vendor.

All changes to integrated vend are tracked as beSECURE makes a request every 30 minutes to check if hosts were added, removed, or changed.

Setting up Device Collector integration

Note: Once you configure a device collector integration, you won't be able to manually add hostnames, IP addresses, or IP address ranges to the scan, but you can exclude them.

To set up a Device Collector integration, do the following:

  1. Log in to beSECURE.
  2. In the upper-left corner of the Home page, select DevOps.
  3. Select Scans > Scans List.
  4. From the Scan List page, select the desired scan.
  5. From the Settings tab, select the Device Collector (Optional) tab.
  6. In the Collector Type box, select the desired device collector. The corresponding parameters will vary depending on the device collector you chose.
