Cisco Secure Cloud Analytics Sensor Deployment for Total Network Analytics and Reporting

Secure Cloud Analytics Sensor Overview and Deployment

Terminology Note: Secure Cloud Analytics is the new name for Stealthwatch Cloud. As Cisco transitions to the new name, you may find references to either Secure Cloud Analytics or Stealthwatch Cloud. These are the same products.

Required License: Total Network Analytics and Monitoring

If you obtain a Total Network Analytics and Monitoring license, after you provision a Secure Cloud Analytics portal, you can:

  • Deploy and configure a Secure Cloud Analytics sensor within your on-premises network to pass network flow data to the cloud for analysis.
  • Configure your cloud-based deployment to pass network flow log data to Secure Cloud Analytics for analysis.

Firewalls at your network perimeter gather information about traffic between your internal network and external networks, while Secure Cloud Analytics sensors gather information about traffic within your internal network.

Note: FTD devices may be configured to pass NetFlow data. When you deploy a sensor, do not configure it to pass NetFlow data from any of your FTD devices which you also configured to pass event information to CDO.

See the Secure Cloud Analytics Sensor Installation Guide for sensor deployment instructions and recommendations.

See the Secure Cloud Analytics Public Cloud Monitoring Guides for cloud-based deployment configuration instructions and recommendations.

Note: You can also review instructions in the Secure Cloud Analytics portal UI to configure sensors and your cloud-based deployment.

See the Secure Cloud Analytics Free Trial Guide for more information about Secure Cloud Analytics.

Note: Cisco Secure Cloud Analytics is the new name for Secure Cloud Analytics.
