Connectors allow Lucidum to ingest data from your environment and discover, identify, and classify assets, data, and users. Lucidum includes pre-built connectors for the most commonly used solutions for security, vulnerability scanning, cloud, data warehouse, identity management, logs, network, endpoint management, IP management, file sharing, and devops.

To configure a connector, you provide credentials that allow Lucidum secure, read-only access to a deployed solution.
