The Custom Collector API: Seamless Metadata Collection

Lumu's new custom collector allows seamless network metadata collection from third-party tools for better, faster compromise assessment.

Network metadata collection is a crucial part of Lumu’s Continuous Compromise Assessment. We know that your infrastructure is unique and we are always looking for new ways to make this process as quick and simple as possible for your unique reality. 

Your organization may already be using defense solutions such as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) or network monitoring tools as part of their pipelines to centralize their logs. In such cases, integrating these third-party solutions through a collector for Lumu can be appropriate.

Introducing the Custom Collector API

Lumu provides the option to deploy Custom Collectors to seamlessly send your network metadata captured from third-party solutions via our API, while layering real-time Continuous Compromise Assessment.
