This topic explains how to select an ESA and the rules to run on it. Administrator, SOC Manager or DPO role permissions are required for all tasks in this section.
To create a deployment, you need to perform the steps described in Deployment Steps
How Deployment Works
A deployment consists of an ESA service and a set of ESA rules. When you deploy rules, the ESA service runs them to detect suspicious or undesirable activity in your network. Each ESA rule detects a different event, such as when a user account is created and deleted within one hour.
The ESA service performs the following functions:
- Gathers data in your network
- Runs ESA rules against the data
- Applies rule criteria to data
- Generates an alert for the captured event
In addition, you may want to perform other steps on your deployment, such as deleting an ESA service in your deployment, editing or deleting a rule from your deployment, editing or deleting a deployment, or showing updates to a deployment. For descriptions of these procedures, Additional Deployment Procedures.
