Setting Up Integrations

Sophos Integration Guide for SecurityCoach

In this article, you will learn how to integrate Sophos' Endpoint Security with SecurityCoach. Once you set up this integration, data provided by Sophos will be available under the SecurityCoach tab of your KMSAT console. This data can be viewed in SecurityCoach reports and used to create detection rules for real-time coaching campaigns. For general information about SecurityCoach, see our SecurityCoach Product Manual.

Note:If you've already integrated with Sophos, we've recently updated our integration method. Please review the new steps below and update your integration as soon as possible.

To set up the Sophos integration with SecurityCoach you’ll need Sophos API credentials from your Sophos console and then enter the credentials in your KMSAT console.

  1. Log in to your Sophos console.
  2. Navigate to Global Settings > API Credentials Management.
  3. Click Add Credential.
  4. In the Add credential pop-up window, enter a Credential name for your integration, such as “KnowBe4 Integration”.
  5. Enter a Description for your integration, such as “KnowBe4 Sophos Integration”.
  6. In the Role drop-down menu, select Service Principal ReadOnly.
  7. Click Add.
  8. On the API credential summary page, copy and save your Client ID and Client Secret in a place you can easily access. You’ll need these credentials to complete the integration.
Important:The Client Secret will only be shown once. When you’re ready to copy your Client Secret, click Show Client Secret.
