Filters are useful when you have a large number of computers and devices on the network. WatchGuard Endpoint Security includes a number of commonly used filters that administrators can use to organize and locate network computers. These predefined filters can be edited or deleted. For examples of additional filters typically created by network administrators, see Example Filters.

Filters Tab

On the Filters tab, you can dynamically group computers and devices on the network based on their characteristics.

You can use logical operators to define complex filters. For example, you can filter your computers by operating system, software installed, or by a custom filter with specific rules for settings, protection status, hardware, software, range of IP addresses, groups, or latest proxies used by the agent. 

For more information, see Add a Filter.

My Organization Tab

You can manually assign computers to a group. Use the My Organization tab to create a multi-level structure of groups, subgroups, and computers. The organizational structure can custom, the company Active Directory structure, or a combination of the two.

The Active Directory structure is generated automatically. To include a computer in a custom group or an Active Directory path, you must install the client agent. You can move computers and devices from one path to another as necessary. For more information, see Manage Groups.

Right Pane

When you select a filter or group from the left pane, the right pane displays a detailed table of the computers on the network.

To add or remove columns in the table, click the options menu in the upper-right corner of the page and select Add or Remove Columns.
