Security Dashboard

On the Security Dashboard page for any Firebox, FireCluster, or group, you can see the top threats in each security area protected by your configured Subscription Services, and take action on the threats.

    The Devices or Groups page appears.
  2. Select a Firebox or group in the list.
    If the Firebox or group has only a logging connection to Dimension, the Executive Dashboard page appears.

  3. If the Device Summary page appears, select Security Dashboard.
  4. From the Start and End drop-down list calendars, select the start and end dates to include in the report data.
    The top blocked threats in each category appear, for the selected date and time range.
