Discovering cloud resources

BigFix 10 provides the capability to discover resources that you own on any of the supported cloud providers.

The discovery is performed by the cloud plugins. Each plugin periodically queries the corresponding cloud provider, and retrieves available cloud resource data. Retrieved data is then processed by the Plugin Portal, and eventually sent to the BigFix Server. In case of cloud resources on which the BigFix Agent is installed, the new cloud provider inspector allows retrieving data that is used for computer correlation purposes.
