Zero Networks Segment Source


Zero Networks is a cybersecurity company that provides cloud-based security solutions for your networks and endpoints. Segment is a solution that aims to provide comprehensive network security by implementing zero-trust principles. With Segment, Zero Networks provides a cloud-based platform that allows you to create micro-segments across the network. These micro-segments are small, isolated portions of the network that are tightly controlled and can only be accessed by authorized users and devices.


This source is available in all deployments, including the Fed deployment.

Vendor configuration

The Zero Networks Segment source requires you to provide the API key and Network Activity Filters (optional) to access the data.

  • Sign in to the Zero Networks platform and create an API Key.
  • (Optional) Follow the below steps to create Network Activity Filters:
    1. Go to Activities page.
    2. Under Network tab, apply the required filters.
    3. Copy the filters from the URL.

Source configuration

When you create an Zero Networks Segment Source, you add it to a Hosted Collector. Before creating the Source, identify the Hosted Collector you want to use or create a new Hosted Collector. For instructions, see Configure a Hosted Collector.

To configure a Zero Networks Segment Source:

  1. In the main Sumo Logic menu, select Manage Data > Collection > Collection.  
  2. On the Collection page, click Add Source next to a Hosted Collector.
  3. Search for and select Zero Networks Segment.
  4. Enter a Name for the Source. The description is optional.
  5. (Optional) For Source Category, enter any string to tag the output collected from the Source. Category metadata is stored in a searchable field called _sourceCategory.
  6. (Optional) Fields. Click the +Add button to define the fields you want to associate. Each field needs a name (key) and value.
    • green check circle.png A green circle with a check mark is shown when the field exists in the Fields table schema.
    • orange exclamation point.png An orange triangle with an exclamation point is shown when the field doesn't exist in the Fields table schema. In this case, an option to automatically add the nonexistent fields to the Fields table schema is provided. If a field is sent to Sumo Logic that does not exist in the Fields schema it is ignored, known as dropped.
  7. Enter the API Key for authorization collected from the Zero Networks platform.
  8. Select Collect Network Activity Data, to collect network activity data.
  9. (Optional) For Network Activity Filters, enter the filters you want to apply for network activity data collected from the Zero Networks platform.

You can only use 256 characters for the network activity filters field.
