Managing Your Sentinel Appliance

The Sentinel UI allows you to perform some appliance administration tasks from Sentinel itself: to do this, log in to Sentinel, go to the Admin Tab, and select Appliance Management.

From here, you can view network requirements and current appliances and status (separated by DAST or SAST), download an appliance, request cloud hosting for a Sentinel Source appliance, or download installation instructions.

If you have an appliance and would like an additional appliance, please contact Customer Service at or by phone at 408.343.8300.

From the list of appliances, you will see each appliance’s id and version (e.g. Ubuntu 14 is shown below), its connection status, and the number of assets (sites or applications) associated with that appliance.

In addition, you can download an appliance or request WhiteHat Cloud Hosting.

Appliance Maintenance

The Sentinel Appliance VM should be backed up and maintained as you would do for any of your servers; in addition, WhiteHat may from time to time push patches or updates to the VM or reboot it as needed.
