How to use your free seedata.io account
Why do you need one? Where should you put your seeds? Who gets alerts?
All new tools and platforms come with a learning curve. Seemingly, lots of them also come with hoops to jump through and barriers to adoption that increase friction for any eager user who may want to see how good the service could be for them. We recognise this as a major headache for everybody involved, so we’ve done two things, deliberately to combat this:
- Built an intuitive platform, easy-to-implement platform with plenty of guidance
- Provided a free-forever account that anybody can sign-up for
This post will help you understand a couple of options on how to get value from the free account, and signpost you to some more detailed explanations on how to configure it. As always, we’re available to help anytime, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
What does the free account give?
You can use all features, and benefit from all analysis and integrations. You can add unlimited users and configure al the alert recipients you need. Plus, we give you 20 credits to use within the first month of signing up.
The credits do expire, so it’s a “use it or lose it” scenario, but the seeds you create with those credits, and our full monitoring, analysis and alerting services will be available forever.
Where should you put your seeds?
- Intelligence on the attack traffic happening on your perimiter; or
- Alerts on insider threat privilege misuse.
The following deployment scenarios could be considered quick wins for typical users of our platforms.
Your web applications
Your cloud platforms
Your file storage
Your code repositories
Where should you send alerts?
You should aim to receive alerts wherever the following step of your incident response processes start from. Below are a few typical suggestions.
For many of you, this will be a SIEM or SOAR tool (splunk, Q-Radar, etc), or maybe a ticketing/service desk platform (Jira, ServiceNow, etc). You may also want some human oversight, in a comms platform (email, Slack, etc).
SIEM / SOAR / XDR
