Cyware Orchestrate Appstore: One-Stop Shop for Third-Party Integrations

Cyware Orchestrate Appstore: One-Stop Shop for Third-Party Integrations

Share Blog Post

A good orchestration solution must integrate with a wide variety of security, DevOps, and IT products and tools. What differentiates an advanced orchestration solution from a conventional one is the level of ease that the former provides to users for managing these integrations/apps. Realizing the significance of integrations, we are integrating a dedicated Appstore into our orchestration solution, Cyware Orchestrate (previously known as Cyware Security Orchestration Layer). 

The latest version of Cyware Orchestrate comes with an Appstore that contains a wide range of apps, which can integrate with other security tools to streamline an organization’s existing security processes and help them take a more comprehensive approach to security orchestration. With the ability to create, install, uninstall, clone, import, and export apps, users can easily manage their apps with our new Appstore. 

What’s New?

Users can now install apps, configure parameters, create instances, and then use these apps in a suitable Playbook. When the Playbooks are implemented, all the actions configured for the app are executed. Users can create, edit, and uninstall apps, as well as perform various other operations on apps. For every app, they can create new actions or operate with existing actions. However, the actions can be executed in a Playbook only when an instance is configured for the app. 

To communicate with an app, instances are needed and an app can have multiple instances. A Cyware Orchestrate user can create two different instances for an App to test or run a Playbook. On an App instance, users can view, add, edit, test, and delete an instance.

Last but not the least, Cyware offers over-the-air updates to apps via the Appstore. Unlike before, when the updates were manually done, users can now just view the update availability in the Appstore and simply click on Update.

About the Features

The Cyware Orchestrate provides a broad spectrum of features such as:
  • Cyware/System Apps: These apps can be used as-is, or can be cloned and subsequently, customized.
  • Support for Custom Apps: Users can now create a custom app and define actions and various other configurations as per their orchestration solutions. For customizing the apps, they can use Python and run test/debug custom actions.


  • Reusing the Apps: Users can import a custom library developed off-site to their Cyware Orchestrate environment using the Import App Package option in the apps listing page. Moreover, they can export an App package in zip format from the app listing page or the app detail page. If users want to customize and work with available Apps in the Appstore, they can clone the apps and subsequently, edit the details as per their needs. Both the apps available in the Appstore and My Apps can be cloned. 
  • Updating the Apps: Users can update an app from the Apps page or the App detail page. If an update is available, the newer versions will be listed with a version number, release date, and the corresponding release notes. 
  • Filter, Sort, and Search Apps: They can use various filters on the apps listings or sort the listing in ascending or descending order. Users can search for an app by app name in the search bar of the Apps page.


  • View Apps Status: Users can check whether an app is Ready To Use, In Progress, or Installed.
  • Agent Compatible Apps: The agent-compatible apps can function in different deployment environments—cloud, on-prem, and hybrid. These apps support the cross-environment orchestration of people, processes, and technologies.
  • View App Documentation: Users can now view the documentation for every app using the documentation link provided in the App detail page.  

Conclusion

In a nutshell, the Appstore feature allows users to seamlessly manage third-party integrations and update apps directly from the Appstore. With a rich Appstore, Cyware Orchestrate users can now install and work with apps as per their requirements to proactively identify and defend against threats targeting their organizations.
