Beta integrations are provided " AS IS " and free of charge during the beta phase. All use of beta integrations is at your sole discretion, and any use is subject to Sophos End User Terms of Use.

You can integrate CylanceOPTICS with Sophos Central so that it sends data to Sophos for analysis.

The key steps are as follows:

  • Get details of your CylanceOPTICS service.
  • Generate an application secret in CylanceOPTICS.
  • Configure an integration in Sophos Central.

    • South America
    • US Government
  • Your CylanceOPTICS tenant ID.

  • Your CylanceOPTICS application ID.
