What’s new with runZero 3.1?

  • Sync your Active Directory users, groups, and machines with runZero
  • Import assets and external services from Shodan
  • Launch integrations from Explorers

Connect and sync Active Directory with runZero

runZero Professional and Enterprise users can now enrich their inventory with asset data from Microsoft Active Directory and Azure AD. runZero Enterprise users will also be able to view, search, analyze, and export users and groups imported from Active Directory. This integration brings Active Directory context to your existing assets and simplifies the process of identifying unmanaged assets.

Once the sync completes users can query the asset inventory to identify unmanaged assets on the network. Using a query like source:runzero AND NOT (source:azuread OR source:ldap) will return a list of assets that weren’t in the integration results. Enterprise users can also leverage queries to search the attributes of users and groups. For example, to find accounts that have never logged in, you can use the following query: last_logon_at:<1.

To get started, set up a connection to Azure AD or your Active Directory domain controller.

Active Directory integrations

runZero Enterprise users can now sync data about their public-facing assets from Shodan Search. Assets and services pulled in from Shodan can be correlated against public-facing assets in your runZero inventory. All Shodan users can craft custom queries to gather Shodan data about public assets and services, and licensed Shodan users can also add filters for more specific criteria. Licensed Shodan users can also have runZero automatically build a filtered query to search all external IP addresses in your inventory. This correlation supports cyber hygiene and attack surface management efforts across IT and security teams.

The external view of your environment provided by Shodan may not match the current state of your assets. By first importing the public data for your external IP addresses from Shodan then scanning them with runZero, you can determine what has changed. Reviewing the Assets changed section of a completed task will let you see what has changed on your public-facing assets since the last scan.

To start pulling asset and service data from Shodan, set up a connection.

Shodan Search integration

Launch integrations from Explorers

You can now run third-party integrations from your runZero Explorers as well as the runZero cloud. This feature is useful for IT and security teams that restrict the allowed network traffic connecting to the APIs of their various tools and platforms. This capability also allows integrations to on-premise tools to run as an independent connector in addition to being run as part of network scans.

To run an integration from an Explorer, use the Connect menu to choose the source and then select an available Explorer from the configuration dialog.

Connector Tasks on Explorers

Add custom fingerprints to runZero

runZero users that have a self-hosted platform or standalone scanner now have the ability to add custom asset and service fingerprints. Following the structure and format of the open-source Recog fingerprint database, users can author their own fingerprint XML files and add them to a directory that the runZero platform or scanner can access. This capability can be useful in adding new fingerprint coverage for unique or custom assets and services, such as a device prototype or a proprietary, internal-use application or service. Custom fingerprints can also be configured to override similar runZero fingerprints by using a same-or-higher certainty value.
