Cato Reports

This article describes Cato's reports that highlight the significant data and information related to different services for your account.


You can generate different types of reports that highlight various aspects of the Cato service that are useful for multiple stakeholders in the organization, from executives to CISO/CIO and IT professionals. Create the template for the Predefined Report with the sites, SDP users, or other items that are included in the report over the defined time range. Then you can generate a report for the defined time range, and download it as a PDF that you can easily share in your organization.

Working with Reports

The report templates are granular and flexible, and show the relevant data and information in your account over the time range for the report. You can define reports to only show data for specific items (such as sites and/or SDP users) and customize the time range for the report.

After you create the report template, you can then generate the PDF and download it to your device.

Understanding the Report Time Range

By default, the Predefined Report templates fo reports show data and information for all sites and SDP users for the past week. The Time Range of the report defines the range of data that is included when you generate the report. For example, if you create and generate a Predefined Report on May 7 to show data for the Last Week, it shows data from May 1 - 7. When you generate this Predefined Report on May 20, it shows data from May 14 - 20, and then you could generate another report on June 10 to show data from June 4 - 10.

If you create a Predefined Report with a custom time range, then the report shows data for that time range when it's generated again.

The maximum Time Range for a report is three months. For example, you can define the start date five months earlier, however the maximum time range of the report is three months after the start date. The start date (From) of the Predefined Report is based on the Data Processing Agreement (DPA) for your account.


Generating and Downloading a Report PDF

Download the report as a PDF from the Generated Reports tab. For reports with a large amount of data, it make take a few minutes to generate the report.

You can use the Reload button to refresh the Generated Reports tab, and see if the report is Ready to download.

You can generate an up-to-date version of a Predefined Report, and then download it. Admins with viewer permissions are allowed to download reports.


To generate and download the PDF of a report:

  1. From the navigation pane, select Monitoring > Reports.

  2. (Optional) From the Predefined Reports tab, find the report template and click Generate.

  3. From the Generated Reports tab, find the Predefined Report and click Download.

    Is there a timeline for the 'scheduling reports to be sent automatically' feature to be released?

    I too am interested in automated reports, especially detailing user activity. 

    I recognise that these reports can contain sensitive information and so perhaps what would be emailed/sent would be a link to the report rather than the report itself as is done with other vendors of security solutions.

    Are we assuming the columns Scheduling and Recipients are EA features?

    How can we be EA testers?

    Yes scheduled reports are very important to a couple of our customers.
