System Requirements

Orbital can be automatically deployed by Secure Endpoint Advantage customers, using Secure Endpoint Connector version 7.1.5 or later for Windows, Connector version 1.16 or later for Mac, and Connector version 1.17 or later for Linux. In order to deploy Orbital, the Secure Endpoint user must be assigned the role of admin.

Cisco XDR or SecureX Admin Users

Orbital has only one user permission profile, write. A user assigned the write profile can log on, create queries, and read the query’s results. Anyone who is an Cisco XDR or SecureX admin automatically gets write access to Orbital.

Cisco XDR or SecureX users assigned the admin role can grant non-Orbital users, in their organization, the necessary rights to use Orbital, such as creating queries and viewing the results of those queries. These access rights are granted using the User Settings page, located in the top-right corner of the screen, as shown in the figure below.
