Executive Summary

Executive Summary presents a concise security overview of all protected endpoints in your network and is specially designed to help you monitor, analyze and provide executive management with easy-to-interpret data.

Composed mostly of widgets, enhances visibility by offering details about endpoint modules, detections and taken actions, threat types and techniques, your company risk score, and others.

Executive Summary - Overview

Important

  • All the provided statistics are based on data collected after enabling the feature. No prior events are included.

  • The Executive Summary feature is not available for Bitdefender EDR Cloud.

The initial sections located on the upper side of the page are:

  • Managed endpoints

    This section presents all the machines in your network that have the security agent installed.

  • Active endpoints

    This section informs you about all the endpoints that were online in the selected period or are online at the moment of reporting.

  • Blocked threats

    This section presents the total number of blocked threats identified on your endpoints.

  • Inventory

    This section provides details about the endpoint types and their operating systems.

  • Company risk score

    In this section, you can find information about your company's level of risk.

In the upper right corner of the page, you can find multiple options available.

You can type the name of a company or select from the dropdown menu the company of interest. Please keep in mind that the summary provides statistics for a single company at a time and not for the entire tree structure.

You can also select a predetermined time interval, relative to the current time:

  • Last 24 hours

  • Last 7 days

  • Last 30 days

You can export the summary in a PDF format or generate an Executive Summary report using the Actions dropdown menu. For more information about the report, refer to Report Types.

Note

  • All the presented data is directly correlated with the selected period and company.

  • To make sure the console displays the latest information use the Refresh button at the upper right side of the page.

Depending on the selected interval, you may observe a difference (delta) shown as a percentage in some sections.

Delta values indicate the differences in your network that occurred between two specific periods:

  • The period prior to the selected interval with the same number of days or hours.

  • The selected interval.

For example, in the image below, the total number of blocked threats in your network has decreased by 6% in the Last 30 days. This percentage resulted after comparing values from the exact 30 days prior to the selected interval with values from the last 30 days.

Executive Summary - Delta

The main widgets of the summary are:

  • Top 5 types of blocked threats

    The widget offers information about the most frequent threat types based on the number of detections on your endpoints. The column on the left displays the threat types and correlated in the right column you can find the number of detections for each type as well as delta values.

    Executive Summary - Top 5 types of blocked threats

  • Threats breakdown by endpoint type

    This widget presents the types of endpoints, workstations, servers, containers, container hosts, and the number of detections on each.

  • Incidents status

    This widget details the security incidents across the company network.

    The incidents categories are described as follows:

    • Detected by prevention modules security events identified as threats by GravityZone prevention modules.

    • Require investigation suspicious incidents requiring investigation upon which no action was taken yet.

  • Remediation actions

    This section describes the actions that were taken upon blocked items based on the applied policy settings.

  • Endpoint modules status

    Provides an overview of the protection modules coverage for your endpoints. The chart presents the modules and whether they are enabled, disabled, or not installed on your endpoints.

  • Company risk score

    This widget provides information about the level of risk your organization is exposed to by misconfigured system settings, known vulnerabilities of currently installed applications, and potential risks caused by user activity and behavior.

  • Policy rule-based detections

    This section details the number of detections and their types based on rules customized in the policy by the administrator.

    The detection types include:

    • Blocked devices - the number of detections based on Device Control rules.

    • Blocked connections - the number of detections based on Firewall rules.

    • Blocked applications - the number of detections based on Application Blacklisting rules.

    • Blocked websites - the number of detections based on Web Access Control rules.

  • Blocked websites

    This widget presents the number of detections organized by threat types and identified on your endpoints by Network Protection.

  • Blocked network attack techniques

    This section provides information about the blocked attack techniques discovered in your network.

Exploring multidimensional data

Executive Summary provides you with the possibility to explore data, by browsing from a statistical level to a more granular and detailed view. The drill-down capability helps you navigate instantly from widgets to specific sections of the Control Center.

To navigate from each widget:

  1. Click the Monitoring page and select Executive Summary.

  2. Find the widget of interest.

  3. Click the widget’s title or content, depending on your selection. For example, if you want to view only the threats discovered on workstations, directly click On workstations instead of the widget’s title.

    After your selection, you are automatically redirected to the corresponding area of the Control Center. Each section displays complex information in a customized way so that you can identify and analyze with ease the aspects you are interested in

To navigate to the Threats Xplorer section, where you can view in detail the detected threats in your network, use the following widgets:

  • Blocked threats

  • Top 5 types of blocked threats

  • Threats breakdown by endpoint type

  • Remediation actions

  • Policy rule-based detections

  • Blocked websites

  • Blocked network attack techniques

To navigate to the Network area where you can view the endpoints list, the corresponding operating systems, and versions, the types of endpoints, and others, use the following widgets:

  • Managed endpoints

  • Active endpoints

  • Inventory

The Company risk score widget redirects you to the Risk Management section where you can find information about the level of risk your organization is exposed to by misconfigured system settings, known vulnerabilities of currently installed applications, and potential risks caused by user behavior.

The Incidents status widget redirects you to the Incidents section, which provides details about all the security events detected by the Incidents Sensor.

The Endpoint modules status widget automatically generates an Endpoint modules status report when accessed. The report provides details about the protection modules coverage for your endpoints.

Important

The sections to which you are redirected are automatically filtered according to your widget selection.

For example, when you click the Blocked threats widget and you are redirected to the Threats Xplorer page the following columns will have preselected and active filters:

  • Endpoint type

    Active filters: Workstation and Server

  • Detecting module

    Active filters: Antimalware, Network Protection, Storage Protection, Exchange Protection

  • Action taken

    Active filters (only remediation actions): Blocked, Deleted, Quarantined, Disinfected, Malicious process killed, Replaced attachment, Rejected/deleted email, Deleted attachment, Rejected email attachment

  • Detecting technology

    Active filters: multiple GravityZone technologies corresponding to the selected modules

  • The reporting interval and the company are automatically correlated with your selection from the Executive Summary section.
