Security Overview Report

To help gain a better perspective of security-related activity within your Umbrella environment, the Security Overview report provides you with easy to read charts of your organization's identities and their activity. You can easily see what's going on with groups of identities and the types of internet requests they're making and where any problems might be popping up. Then you can pivot from this Security Overview report to more advanced reports and determine if there are security risks to your environment that require you to take action.

    A percentage appears to compare the current time selected with the previous. For example, if 30 days is selected, the graphs will show as a percentage increase or decrease from the previous 30-day period to the last 30-day period. Similarly, if Yesterday is selected, the graphs will show a percentage increase or decrease from the day before yesterday's data to yesterday's data.
