Control Center Pages


Customer type companies without a monthly subscription can view a Control Center home page that presents a high-level overview of the GravityZone capabilities. By employing a series of widgets, the page displays user-friendly content that simplifies basic tasks and provides access to the latest news.





The Dashboard consists of a series of portlets that provide you with security event information from your environment. You can customize the portlets and create your own, specifying the protection mechanism you would like the monitor and the time interval you would like to see in the data.

Portlets are interactive; if you wish to display further information on any event you can click on the datapoint in the portlet representing said event. Doing so will display a report that is representative of the time interval in which the event occurred and provides more in-depth information.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary page presents a high-level, endpoint-focused version of the Dashboard, providing a series of widgets displaying details about endpoint modules, detections and taken actions, threat types and techniques, your company risk score, threat breakdowns, statistics, and many more.


As opposed to Dashboard portlets, the widgets in the Executive Summary screen are static and read-only.



The Incidents screen provides you with a list of recent security incidents going back 90 days, and the ability to search for security incidents in all your managed companies or using a variety of filters and search criteria.

Clicking any incident will display additional information about the event.

You can search for three types of incidents:

  • Extended Incidents


    Available in Ultra Plus.

    The Extended Incidents tab displays all organization-wide incidents which require further investigation.

  • Endpoint Incidents


    Available in GravityZone Business Security Enterprise, Ultra Plus and EDR companion standalone.

    The Endpoint Incidents tab displays all endpoint-related incidents detected by the BEST Cross-Technology Correlations module which require further investigation.

  • Detected Threats


    Available in GravityZone Business Security Enterprise, Ultra Plus and GravityZone Business Security Premium.

    The Detected Threats tab displays a list of threats that have been identified and stopped (or reported, depending on your policies) by GravityZone prevention technologies.


Blocklists stop the spread of malware detected by EDR to other endpoints. To be able to identify these threats, they are given a hash value.

The Blocklist screen displays incidents related to a specific hash value and manage the hashes you are currently tracking.


The search page provides you a complex search engine to locate incidents based on a high number of criteria and parameters. It also provides several predefined search options and the ability to save your preferred search criteria.

Custom Rules

The Custom Rules page allows you to create and manage rules that block or whitelist specific behavior or events.

  • Detections - They mark specific behavior that might occur in your environment as a valid detection. Any event matching this behavior will generate an appropriate incident.

  • Exclusions - They mark specific behavior that might occur in your environment as safe. Any event matching this behavior, even if it would normally be flagged, will not generate any event.

Threats Xplorer

Threats Xplorer is specially designed to offer you highly increased visibility over the detected threats in your network. The feature centralizes detection events from multiple GravityZone technologies and classifies them by category, threat type, remediation actions, and many others. You can easily identify and analyze any event from your company over a specific time interval by using the available filters. You can select filters from the drop-down menu or type keywords that match your desired results.



In the Network page you can display, search for, and manage your companies, networks and endpoints. For each entity you can perform various operations such as display additional information, create tasks and reports, assign policies, troubleshoot and more.

You can set the tasks to run recurrently on specific endpoints and choose from a large number of indicators of risk to search for to locate any vulnerabilities.

In the Policies page you can create, customize and assign your company's security policies.

A policy specifies the security settings to be applied on target network inventory objects (computers, virtual machines or mobile devices). You can create as many policies as you need based on security requirements, for each type of managed network object.

Configuration Profiles

In the Configuration Profiles page, you can create and manage collections of settings outside policies so that you apply them in your network in an efficient manner.

Several different report types are available so that you can easily get the information you need. The information is presented as easy-to-read interactive charts and tables, allowing you to quickly check the network security status and identify security issues.

Ransomware Activity

You can search or filter through the list of files, display additional information on each of them and decides on whether to restore, download or delete the files.

When a virus or other form of malware is in quarantine, it cannot do any harm because it cannot be executed or read. GravityZone moves files to quarantine according to the policies assigned to endpoints.
