Effective August 18, 2023, the integration between Rapid7 and Nebula has reached its End of Maintenance (EOM). While the integration remains available for use, we would like to inform you that it will no longer receive updates. We encourage you to exercise caution when using this integration, as any use will be at your own risk. We are committed to providing ongoing support for common product usage questions and access to our online articles.
To configure the integration, you will need to:
- Install the Collector component on a designated Windows™ or Linux™ server.
- Configure a syslog communication endpoint to send Nebula syslog data to your Collector.
- Add the Nebula event source in Rapid7 InsightIDR.
Configure Collector and syslog endpoint
- Install the Collector component on a Windows or Linux server. For more information, see Rapid7's Collector Overview support documentation.
- Log in to Nebula and go to Configure > Syslog Logging.
- Designate one of your Malwarebytes Windows endpoints to forward syslog data to your Collector. Follow the steps in the article Configure Syslog in Nebula platform. When configuring Syslog Communication Settings, enter your Collector's IP address for the IP Address/Host field.
