Using the DLP Dashboard

  • Updated

This article discusses how to use the DLP Dashboard to get a quick overview of data related violations and events in your network. You can then drill-down and analyze the threat types and easily open the relevant events.

Overview of DLP Dashboard

The DLP Dashboard lets you view the data and content related activity in your network based on the data control policies. The screen contains several widgets that provide visibility for the different data violation criteria. The screen also lets you filter according to a specific time frame to drill-down and focus on the relevant data violations and events in your account.

Getting Started with the DLP Dashboard

The DLP Dashboard screen shows the total number of data violations over the time range.

Selecting the Time Range

The default time range for the data violations is the previous two days. You can select a different time range for the DLP Dashboard to show a longer or shorter time period. For more information, see Setting the Time Range Filter.

The maximum date range for the DLP Dashboard is 90 days.

Working with DLP Dashboard Widgets

The DLP Dashboard widgets give you a high-level overview of data control violations in your network.

Understanding the DLP Widgets

The DLP widgets provide information about the data violations detected by the DLP engines. These are the DLP widgets:

  •  Top Violating Rules - Shows the top data control rules in the Application Control screen according to the rule name and the number of events for each one.

  • Events Violations Over Time - Shows the number of data violations over the time frame. You can filter the widget by:

    • Rule name - select the data control rule that is shown in the widget.

    • Application - select the applications that are shown in the widget (only shows applications that were actually used during the time frame).

    Use the mouse to select a smaller time range for the threat data, the screen is automatically updated.

  • Events by Actions – Shows the percentage of events based on the rule actions.

    Hover over the widget to show the absolute number of events.

  • Events by Severity – Shows the number of events based on the severity for the Data Control rules.

  • Event Violations by Sites - Map of the top physical site locations with the number of events per site.
