Sophos Central has secured APIs available for customers. These allow the retrieval of event and alert data from Sophos Central, for use in other systems.
The primary goal for these APIs is to allow integration with SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) solutions; the Sophos Central SIEM Integration script achieves this.
If you wish to write your own integration for SIEM or other purposes, we have documentation on the APIs and you may find our existing SIEM integration script a useful starting point. See, Sophos Central APIs: How to send alert and event data to your SIEM.
NOTE: Sophos Support is available only for the APIs and our unmodified script. We do not provide advice and troubleshooting for customer created integrations. Your Sophos partner may provide such services, and arrange to involve Sophos’ own Professional Services team if you need assistance beyond Sophos Support’s remit.
This article describes the procedure to create an API token, modify config.ini to include token data, and launch the script to import data into your SIEM solution.
