Top Threats Report

The Top Threats report highlights threats your organization may have been exposed to over a set time and whether they were blocked or allowed.

When no new threats are detected in the set time, a notification appears in the Threat Activity Breakdown.

Note: Not all threats identified by Umbrella have a corresponding threat type. You may see activity blocked under Security Activity but not see anything blocked under Top Threat Types. This is normal when a threat does not currently have a threat type associated with it.
