What are CSPM findings?edit

CSPM findings indicate whether a given resource passed or failed evaluation against a specific security guideline. Each finding includes metadata about the resource evaluated and the security guideline used to evaluate it. Each finding’s result (pass or fail) indicates whether a particular part of your infrastructure meets a security guideline.

Group and filter findingsedit

By default, the Findings page lists all findings, without grouping or filtering.

Group findingsedit

Click Group findings by to group your data by a field. Select one of the suggested fields or Custom field to choose your own. You can select up to three group fields at once. . When grouping is turned on, click a group to expand it and examine all sub-groups or findings within that group. . To turn off grouping, click Group findings by and select None.

Multiple groupings apply to your data in the order you selected them. For example, if you first select Cloud account, then select Resource, the top-level grouping will be based on Cloud account, and its subordinate grouping will be based on Resource.

Filter findingsedit

You can filter findings data in two ways:

  • KQL search bar: For example, search for result.evaluation : failed to view all failed findings.
  • In-table value filters: Hover over a finding to display available inline actions. Use the Filter In (plus) and Filter Out (minus) buttons.
Customize the Findings tableedit

You can use the toolbar buttons in the upper-left of the Findings table to select which columns appear:

  • Columns: Select the left-to-right order in which columns appear.
  • Sort fields : Sort the table by one or more columns, or turn sorting off.
  • Fields: Select which fields to display for each finding. Selected fields appear in the table and the Columns menu.

You can also click a column’s name to open a menu that allows you to perform multiple actions on the column.

Remediate failed findingsedit

To remediate failed findings and reduce your attack surface:

  1. First, filter for failed findings.
  2. Click the arrow to the left of a failed finding to open the findings flyout.
  3. Follow the steps under Remediation.

    Remediation steps typically include commands for you to execute. These sometimes contain placeholder values that you must replace before execution.

Generate alerts for failed Findingsedit

You can create detection rules that detect specific failed findings directly from the Findings page.

  1. Click the arrow to the left of a Finding to open the findings flyout.
  2. Click Take action, then Create a detection rule. This automatically creates a detection rule that creates alerts when the associated benchmark rule generates a failed finding.
  3. To review or customize the new rule, click View rule.
