Introduction to Cloud Discovery & Visibility - Adaptive Applications - BlueCat Gateway - 23.3.2

Cloud Discovery & Visibility Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Gateway
The BlueCat Cloud Discovery & Visibility (CDV) Adaptive Application lets you look for network objects and infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environments, then import the discovered objects into Address Manager. This provides continuous, real-time visibility into the changes to your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructure.
Note: BlueCat CDV provides visibility only into your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructures. You cannot use the CDV to export Address Manager data into your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructure.

The application imports the following information from each cloud environment:

  • AWS Private VPCs/Subnets
  • AWS Public IP Ranges
  • AWS EC2 Instances
  • AWS DNS Hostnames (Internal)
  • AWS DNS Hostnames (External)
  • AWS Elastic Load Balancers v2 (ELBv2)
  • AWS Elastic Network Interfaces (ENI)
    Note: ENI devices are not created, but CDV does display their allocation.
  • AWS Route 53 (Private DNS)
  • AWS Route 53 (Public DNS)
  • AWS VPC Endpoints
  • AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS)
  • Resource Groups
  • Azure Virtual Networks and Subnets
  • Azure Virtual Machines
  • Azure Load Balancers
  • Azure Private DNS Zones
  • Azure Public DNS Zones
  • Azure Private Endpoints
  • Azure Kubernetes Service Clusters
  • GCP VPC/Subnet
  • GCP Public VPC/Subnet
  • GCP Virtual Machines
  • GCP Load Balancers
  • GCP Cloud DNS (Private Zones)
  • GCP Cloud DNS (Public Zones)
  • GCP Private Endpoints
  • GCP Kubernetes Engine
Note: AWS, Azure, and GCP accounts are configured during setup. They are used to continuously monitor and retrieve changes from your AWS, Azure, and GCP infrastructure. You do not need to be logged into the AWS, Azure, and GCP workflow for visibility to occur.
