Control Center

Monitor dashboard

The Control Center dashboard is a customizable visual display providing a quick security overview of all protected endpoints and network status.

Dashboard portlets display various real-time security information using easy-to-read charts, thus allowing you to quickly identify any issues that might require your attention.


This is what you need to know about dashboard portlets:

  • Control Center comes with several predefined dashboard portlets.

  • Each dashboard portlet includes a detailed report in the background, accessible with just one click on the chart.

  • There are several types of portlets that include various information about your endpoint protection, such as update status, malware status, firewall activity.


    By default, the portlets retrieve data for the current day and, unlike reports, cannot be set for longer intervals than one month.

  • The information displayed via portlets refers to endpoints under your account only. You can customize each portlet's target and preferences using the dashboard.edit Edit Portlet command.

  • Click the chart legend entries, when available, to hide or display the corresponding variable on the graph.

  • The portlets are displayed in groups of four. Use the vertical scroll bar or the up and down arrow keys to navigate between portlet groups.

  • For several report types, you have the option to instantly run specific tasks on target endpoints, without having to go to the Network page from the left side menu to run the task (for example, scan infected endpoints or update endpoints). Use the button at the lower side of the portlet to take the available action.

The dashboard is easy to configure, based on individual preferences. You can edit portlet settings, add additional portlets, remove or rearrange existing portlets.
