Now What?

You now have the ability to raise and review tickets via the Samurai Help Center.

We encourage you to review Samurai XDR Application Overview and then jump right into Setup.



With access to the Samurai XDR application, you can begin Setup.  The data sources we gather telemetry data from will require configuration. For cloud based products or services, a cloud collector is typically used which is native to the XDR application. Alternatively if your device supports Syslog over TLS you can send your logs straight to us!

Please review Samurai XDR Collectors to understand and determine what type of collectors you require. Don't worry if you are unsure, the device configuration knowledge guide will help you.



Once you have worked through your collector requirements you can then move to integrations.  Review Integrations Overview  for more information and then select Integrations for steps to integrate your products with Samurai XDR.


If you have any questions please email us or raise a ticket in the Samurai XDR Help Center
