☁️ Introducing Cloud Event Sources

We’re proud to announce that cloud-based event collection is now possible in InsightIDR!

You now have the option to collect data from several event sources either through the cloud or through a collector. Cloud connections take less time to configure and provide a direct integration between your event data and InsightIDR.

Today, we’re launching support for 6 major event sources on the cloud, which marks the beginning of a new phase of seamless integration with the Rapid7 Platform.

This will be a phased release, so if your environment is not yet displaying the new Cloud option for these 6 event sources, please be patient–your environment will update shortly.

The following event sources are now available for configuration directly in the cloud:

  • Cisco Umbrella
  • Duo Security
  • Mimecast
  • Okta
  • Proofpoint TAP
  • Zoom

Now, we’re eager to hear from you. What other event sources would you like to see running on the cloud? Share your thoughts in the thread below :point_down:.


Any plans for something like custom log cloud sources? I have a cloud application that can send to a syslog. I do not what to send those logs to my collector as it would require opening more ports on the firewall. Just would like to send the logs directly to rapid7.

Thanks for the response! We don’t have active plans for custom cloud sources right now, but I’ll raise this feedback with our team.
