Take Forensic Snapshot and Isolate

Out of Box

Response Workflow

This workflow initiates a Cisco Orbital forensic snapshot for the endpoint identified by the provided observable and then attempts to enable host isolation using Cisco Secure Endpoint. Supported observables: ip, mac_address, amp_computer_guid


Change Log

Date Notes
Jun 29, 2020 - Initial release
Sep 10, 2021 - Updated to use the new system atomics

See the Important Notes page for more information about updating workflows


  • The following system atomics are used by this workflow:
    • Orbital - Query Endpoint
    • Secure Endpoint - Get Connector GUID
    • Secure Endpoint - Isolate Host
    • Threat Response - Generate Access Token
  • The following atomic actions must be imported before you can import this workflow:
    • None
  • The targets and account keys listed at the bottom of the page
  • Cisco Secure Endpoint with Orbital

Workflow Steps

  1. Make sure the observable is supported and set the corresponding local variable
  2. If the observable wasn’t a computer GUID, try getting a GUID from Secure Endpoint
  3. Generate an access token for Orbital
  4. Execute a forensic snapshot
  5. If a GUID was found, request host isolation
