Monitors: Summary tab

The
Summary
tab on the
Monitors
page displays concise, high-level summaries of important log data to give you an immediate picture of security status. All summaries display events for the time period that you configure for the
Home
page in the
Preferences
dialog box. The default value is to display events for the last 12 hours.
You can click any chart to see more details about the summaries in a new window.
Deception summaries
Summary
Description
Top Machines with Deception Activity
Displays the top client computers that get hit by attacker activity, as indicated by events from deceptors on the given computers.
A deceptor consists of artifacts such as files that are delivered to client computers. When an attacker touches an artifact, the artifact triggers an event. By design, the artifacts are hidden from the everyday user, but are interesting to an intruder.
Top Processes with Deception Activity
Displays the caller processes that attackers use to trigger deception events. For example, if ping.exe was used to trigger the Network Lookup (DNS) Deceptor, then ping.exe is the caller process.
Top Users with Deception Activity
Displays the users that get hit by attacker activity the most, based on events from deceptors on the client computers the users use.
Top Deceptors Triggered
Displays which deceptors that were touched the most.
Virus and Spyware Protection summaries
Summary
Description
Risk Distribution
Displays the overall distribution of risks.
New Risks
Displays a table of newly found risks, the entity that detected them, and the computer that they were found on. A new risk is a risk that has been detected for the first time during the view's time period. As the summary view ages, the risks drop out of the list as the database purges log entries.
You can configure the time period that is used for the summaries from the
Home
page in the
Preferences
dialog box.
For example, suppose that you set your time period to the past 24 hours and your database to retain entries for 2 months. If the XYZ risk was last detected 6 months ago, it is no longer in an entry in the database. If
Symantec Endpoint Protection
detects XYZ within the past 24 hours, it appears here as a new risk.
SONAR
Displays the distribution of SONAR threats that have been found.
Risk Distribution by Source
Displays a summary of the risk distribution by the source of the risk.
Risk Distribution by Group
Displays a summary of the risk distribution by the groups.
