What is a Cisco Web Security Appliance?

Cisco Web Security Appliance (Cisco WSA) is a web security solution that focuses on securing web traffic and providing granular control over internet access. WSA offers features such as URL filtering, application visibility and control, antivirus scanning, and data loss prevention for web traffic. It helps organizations protect against web-based threats, enforce acceptable use policies, and ensure regulatory compliance.

How to monitor a Cisco Web Security Appliance?

ServicePilot makes it very easy to monitor a Cisco Web Security Appliance. Simply configure the SNMP interface of the Cisco Web Security Appliance. Then use the ServicePilot web interface to add a resource from the ServicePilot security-cisco-secure-web-appliance package.

The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • CPU
  • Memory
  • Network Interfaces
  • Other SNMP statistics

Network Interfaces and Environment Sensors will be automatically discovered.

How to install a cisco-secure-web-appliance resource?

  1. Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
  2. Add a new cisco-secure-web-appliance resource via the web interface (/prmviews or /prmresources) or via API (/prmpackages page), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.

Details of the cisco-secure-web-appliance package are located in the /prmpackages page of the software.
