Extended visibility into Google Workspace

runZero 3.3 furthers the visibility into your Google ecosystem through a new integration with Google Workspace. runZero Professional+ users will be able to sync Google Workspace asset details from mobile devices, endpoints, and managed Chrome systems, while runZero Enterprise users will also be able to sync Users and Groups. Once the integrations are configured, users can view, search, analyze, export, and alert on attributes from both Google Workspace and Google Cloud Platform.

One of the key reasons to leverage the runZero integrations is to get better insight into the scope of your environment and completeness of coverage since MDM and IAM platforms can’t provide any insights into devices that haven’t been onboarded. To identify assets on your network that aren’t onboarded to Google Workspace, use the query source:runZero AND NOT source:googleworkspace. Conversely, use this query to find assets from Google Cloud Platform or Google Workspace that have not been scanned by runZero yet: (source:gcp OR source:googleworkspace) AND NOT source:runzero. These queries can help you keep pace with unmanaged and disconnected assets.

The integration also pulls in many Google Workspace attributes to give you comprehensive asset visibility. This could include attributes like when a device was last synced, whether a device has a password enabled or is encrypted, or whether it supports the use of a work profile. The Recent Users list in the asset details can also provide insight into device ownership and usage. You can filter for a specific user by using the @googleworkspace.mobile.email attribute for mobile devices or the @googleworkspace.chromeos.recentUsers attribute for ChromeOS devices. To find mobile devices that aren’t locked with a password try the query @googleworkspace.mobile.devicePasswordStatus:="Off", or use @googleworkspace.mobile.encryptionStatus:="Not Encrypted" to find ones without encryption enabled. The wildcard operator also lets you find results with a range of OS versions, such as using @googleworkspace.endpoint.osVersion:="MacOS 12.% to find Google Workspace assets running macOS Monterey.

runZero offers unmatched active network scanning, while also integrating with an ever-growing list of data sources so that you have a complete asset inventory at your fingertips. To get started, set up a connection to Google Workspace or Google Cloud Platform.

Google Workspace integration

Queries for Google Workspace users and groups

runZero Enterprise users can leverage the new queries tailored for the Google Workspace integration to quickly find and alert on accounts that match particular parameters, in addition to being able to run searches in the Users and Groups inventories. Identify administrator accounts, suspended accounts, and accounts without MFA to improve IAM efforts and better protect your environment. These queries are included in the Query Library and can also be used to create alerts.

Run queries about Google Workspace users or create an alert rule to find assets of interest.

Query and Alert on Google Workspace Results

Fingerprinting for Google assets

runZero includes fingerprints for the metadata returned by the Google integrations, including Google Cloud Platform and Google Workspace. This will help provide the most accurate operating system and hardware data about the assets in your inventory.

In addition to Google fingerprints, runZero has also improved fingerprinting coverage of Microsoft 365 Defender assets and SNMP devices. Additional support was added or improved for products by Apache, Aruba, Avaya, Axon, Cisco, CyberPower, Debian, Eaton, Epson, Fortinet, Fujifilm, Geist, Hikvision, Lexmark, Oracle, Sato, Sony, Vivi, and VMware.

Identification of OpenSSL services

In preparation for the OpenSSL vulnerability announcement, runZero released remote, unauthenticated fingerprinting for OpenSSL 3 services, allowing our users to get ahead of the mitigation process prior to the vulnerability details becoming public. This capability has since expanded to detect even more TLS implementations and track the TLS stacks in use on each asset. runZero users can find OpenSSL endpoints using the query product:openssl, in the assets, services, and software inventories.

The server-side exposure only applies to services that process client certificates. runZero already performs checks for this, even though it is not a common configuration. To identify services running OpenSSL 3.0.x variants that may be vulnerable to exploitation, use the following query in the service inventory search: _service.product:"OpenSSL:OpenSSL:3" AND tls.requiresClientCertificate:"true".

Improvements to the runZero Console

The 3.3 release includes several changes to the user interface to improve the performance of the runZero console. The tables on the Explorers, Sites, Organizations, and Your team pages now perform and load faster. This will let users query and sort the results in tables more efficiently, getting to the answers they need faster.

The release also extends the availability of the All Organizations view. All users now have a view that will show them the results from all of the organizations that they have access to. The available permissions in that view reflect their per-organization permissions so that they can manage resources just like they would when viewing a single organization.

About runZero
runZero, a network discovery and asset inventory solution, was founded in 2018 by HD Moore, the creator of Metasploit. HD envisioned a modern active discovery solution that could find and identify everything on a network–without credentials. As a security researcher and penetration tester, he often employed benign ways to get information leaks and piece them together to build device profiles. Eventually, this work led him to leverage applied research and the discovery techniques developed for security and penetration testing to create runZero.
