Customizable Visibility

Every organization requires different information regarding security posture, events, and network usage. Next Generation SmartEvent allows users to create customized views and reports to tailor a view to reflect and display only the information that is relevant to your organization; whether you need to understand severity of attacks, common attacks, or attack origin or destination.  Further optimize the visual display of the data by adding widgets and customizing the chart types to make security data easy to understand at a glance.

Personalized Reporting

Next Generation SmartEvent provides flexibility to be able to produce customized and tailored reports for specific stakeholders within your organization.  A C-level executive may need an overview of high risk events in the last month, but the department head may need to know where employees are going online. Next Generation SmartEvent enables you to easily create reports customized to display only the information relevant to the stakeholder, providing them easy access to the information they need to make informed security decisions.

Quickly Investigate Security Incidents

Next Generation SmartEvent enables one click exploration of security incidents.  In a single click, move from a high-level overview to specific details needed for forensic analysis, including type of attack, timeline, application type and source.  Next Generation SmartEvent provides the tools to rapidly conduct forensic investigations and delivers complete visibility into potential threats.
Next Generation SmartEvent also provides a free text search to facilitate searching through billions of logs in just seconds. Recent searches, suggestions and favorites help make your search even faster.

Correlate Logs to Identify Suspicious Activity

With Next Generation SmartEvent, monitor all activity and events and correlate multiple logs to identify suspicious activity from the clutter.  Rapid data analysis, and the ability to create customized event logs, immediately alerts administrators to discrepancies and inconsistencies such as someone attempting to use the same credential in multiple geographies simultaneously.
