FortiSIEM can automatically discover the devices, applications, and users in your IT infrastructure and begin monitoring them. You initiate device discovery by providing the credentials that are needed to access the infrastructure component, and from there FortiSIEM is able to discover information about your component such as the host name, operating system, hardware information such as CPU and memory, software information such as running processes and services, and configuration information. Once discovered, FortiSIEM will also begin monitoring your component on an ongoing basis.
Though FortiSIEM is able to automatically manage device discovery, the pulling of event information such as logs and IPS events from your device, and establishing what aspects of your device functionality it can monitor, you can also manually configure the way FortiSIEM interacts with your infrastructure by creating custom event pulling methods and monitoring profiles for your devices.
