About Resources

The Analytics > Resources page allows you to view all of your IaaS and Container Resources in AWS, Azure, and GCP enabled with MVISION Cloud.

It also provides visibility into Amazon’s storage container service, Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), and provides the compliance status for each resource that has a Config Audit Policy incident, DLP incident, or McAfee CWS threat.

The Resources page also provides visibility of container assets for Azure Container Registry (ACR) and Google Container Registry (GCR), displaying container images stored as resources, and operating system inventory from container images. 

Users with the Usage Analytics role can access the Analytics > Resources page.

You can also add the Resources card to your Dashboards. For details see About My Dashboard

Risk Score

At any given time, your IaaS infrastructure has hundreds of resources and thousands of incidents, and it is difficult to prioritize critical incidents for analysis and remediation. To solve this issue, MVISION Cloud provides risk scores for all resources in the Risk table column, (Low: 1-3, Medium: 4-6, High: 7-9). This allows you to focus on the riskiest resources first.

Risk scores are calculated based on different types of incidents like Configuration Audit, DLP and Malware, Vulnerabilities, Workload Hardening, and related attribute categories. For details, see Resource Risk Details

Table View

The Resources page Table view is the default view. 
resources_table_5.3.1.png

The Resources page provides the following information and actions:

  • Filters. Select options on the Filters tab to scope down your search. 
  • Views. Select Saved Views created by you or shared with you by another user to reuse specified search parameters from a previous search on current data. 
  • Search. Search via the Omnibar.
    • On the Resources page, you can also use the Omnibar to search based on tags for specific values across AWS accounts and Azure subscriptions. For example, tag-based search allows you to search for specific values across AWS accounts and Azure subscriptions, such as:
      • List all Untagged Resources, where no tags are defined. This is used, for example, if your company has a policy that all resources must have a set of mandatory tags.
      • List all resources that have All possible values for a given tag-key.
      • List all resources with No Values, or where only a tag-key is defined.
    • You can also search by CVE Number. For details, see CVE Number Search
    • On the Resources page, supported for ECR and ACR, you can also search for:
      • Namespaces. For example, Ubuntu or Centos. 
      • Packages. For example, OpenSSL or bZIP. 
      • Operating systems. 
  • Save View. Click to create a Saved View from your search query. 
  • Actions. Click Actions to:
  • Risk. Provides the resource's risk score and allows you to investigate resources based on your priorities. Click the Risk score (Low: 1-3, Medium: 4-6, High: 7-9) to See Risk Details in the Cloud Card. Filter the table by Risk Type for Low, Medium, and High risk resources.

Resource Risk Details

In the Resource Cloud Card, when you click See Risk Details, the Resource Risk Details modal is displayed. The Resource Risk Details modal provides risk score and distribution of incidents based on Priority Groups and attribute categories.

MVISION Cloud policies are mapped to attribute categories. Based on the severity of the policies, they are grouped into four priority groups. 

  1. Priority Group 1. Contains all policies with High severity from the attribute categories Unrestricted Access, Network Security, Data Exfiltration, and Malware.
  2. Priority Group 2. Contains all policies with High severity from the remaining attribute categories.
  3. Priority Group 3. Contains all policies with Medium priority from all the attribute categories.
  4. Priority Group 4. Contains all policies with the severity Low, Warning, and Info from all the attribute categories.

For example, in the following screenshot, you can see one incident in each Priority Group 1, Priority Group 2, and Priority Group 4. You can see three incidents under Priority Group 3.

Connections Graph View

The Resource Connections Graph View provides an interactive graph of IaaS and Container Security resource asset connections and network flow for AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). 

If you have enabled Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Flow Logs, the connections graph is also overlaid with VPC Flow Logs data. For example, you can view all external IP addresses, including malicious IP addresses, communicating with your infrastructure at a resource level. You can also see the other resources a particular resource is communicating with, as it may not be allowed. 

To configure VPC Flow Logs for MVISION Cloud, see Enable Amazon VPC Flow Logs for MVISION Cloud

When you click on the Connections View icon, you will see your full inventory of Resources.

The Resources Connections Graph provides the following columns, which represent all of the resource entities in your environment as interactive nodes:

  • Services
  • Instances
  • Accounts
  • Regions
  • Resource Types
  • Resources

To search for Resources in the Connections Graph:

  1. Use Filters and Omnibar search terms to display only relevant resources and interconnections for your investigation and highlight resource compliance.
  2. Click through the graph nodes to navigate and drill down for more information.
  3. The graph displays 10 nodes per column, but when you have many more resources available, they are combined into an aggregated node. It displays a number in front of the name in parenthesis (such as (8) More Re., for Regions). Select the aggregated node to display a dialog, and you can search the remaining Regions or Resources
