About Cloud Connector


Skyhigh Cloud Connector (also called GroundLink) is a lightweight on-premises application that runs on a virtual machine to ingest and process logs from egress devices, such as proxies or firewalls. It identifies relevant log entries, while tokenizing confidential information, enhancing the value of your existing infrastructure investments. Then Cloud Connector compresses the data and securely uploads it to Skyhigh CASB for discovery and analysis. Sensitive log data is tokenized on-premises, making sure no personally identifiable information or confidential data such as usernames and IP addresses leave your organization. Cloud Connector also integrates with edge devices (proxies and firewalls) for Closed-Loop Remediation, Active Directory, SIEM, and SMTP. 

Download and Install

Cloud Connector runs on a virtual machine, and is available for download and installation on Windows or Linux environments. Before installing, review Skyhigh Cloud Connector Prerequisites
