Release Time
36 times
Security Sub-System

  • Open Endpoint Manager > Click 'Security Sub-Systems' > 'Security Dashboards'
  • The security dashboard is a list of all security-related events on managed Windows endpoints. The events in this interface are generated by the antivirus, containment and application-control modules. 
  • Example events you will see in the security dashboard are:
    • When malware is blocked, quarantined or ignored
    • When someone changes the trust rating of a file, or submits a false positive
    • When a file is run in the container
    • When files are added to, or removed from the client security file list
  • The interface also lets you change the trust rating of a file, move files in or out of quarantine, and view file details and activity.
  • The dashboards has two tabs:
    • Event View - Shows all events in chronological order 
    • File View - All events concerning a particular file are grouped together in a single row
  • Click on a filename in either of the two views above to access the following:
    • File Details - Basic information about the file, including date first seen and number of endpoints on which it was found.
    • File History - A timeline of events caused by the file. This includes the device on which the event took place and the action that was taken on the file.
