1. Key Benefits of Integration

ManageEngine PAM360 integrates with Rapid7 InsightVM, a vulnerability management tool that automatically scans and collects data from all endpoints available in a network and identifies the ones that may pose a security risk. The PAM360-InsightVM integration helps you secure and centrally manage the shared credentials that are necessary to run vulnerability scans, right from the PAM360 interface.

2. How Does the Integration Work?

PAM360 sources data from InsightVM through their API and using their host name and login credentials. Once the integration is complete, all the services in InsightVM will be populated in PAM360, after which you can associate and manage the InsightVM  credentials from the PAM360 interface.

3. Prerequisites for Performing the Integration

Before commencing the integration, verify if all of the below prerequisites are satisfied:

  1. PAM360 supports connection via HTTPS only, hence it is mandatory to import a valid SSL certificate in the server. Follow the steps given here to import a certificate in the server.
  2. To remotely update passwords for InsightVM services after integration, you need to have the remote password reset enabled for resources in PAM360. Click here to learn more about setting up remote password reset in PAM360.

4. Steps to Configure the Integration

To enable and configure the PAM360 - InsightVM integration, follow the below steps:
