Dashboard

You can create a dashboard with widgets that are specific to ETP. These widgets allow you to track events, traffic, ETP client downloads, risky applications, devices, and more across your organization. The dashboard gives administrators and report viewers the ease of viewing data at a glance. This information allows you to not only learn about the activity or user actions that generated events, but it also gives you the information you need to investigate data in ETP reports and take action to remove threats or compromised machines from your network.

When you add a dashboard, you can select the ETP widgets that you want the dashboard to include. This allows you to create a view that shows the data you need to monitor. For example, you can create a dashboard that’s focused only on HTTP events, while creating another dashboard that tracks risky applications or application operations as part of an application visibility and control configuration.

If your organization is also licensed for Enterprise Application Access or Multi-factor Authentication, you can add widgets for these products.

After you select widgets for the dashboard, you can preview the dashboard and make modifications by adding or removing a widget. Once the dashboard is saved, you cannot add new widgets to it.

When viewing a dashboard, you can filter data to show results for a specific time period. Clicking data in a dashboard directs you to the related ETP report where you can investigate the findings even further.

Enterprise Center also includes predefined dashboards that contain the widgets you’ll need to track threats, traffic, and more. For more information, see Predefined dashboards.

ETP DNS server information is contained in the Connection Info widget. By default, this widget appears in the Threat Overview dashboard. However, you can add it to any dashboard you create. To easily reference this information, consider adding it to your custom dashboards.

Predefined dashboards

While you can create a custom dashboard with the widgets you define, you can also view data in dashboards that ​Akamai​ has defined for you. These dashboards are available in Enterprise Center:

  • Threat Overview. This dashboard contains widgets that show threat events and activity at a high level. This Threat Overview widget shows threats events based on severity, allowing you to focus on the most critical events.

  • Security. This dashboard contains widgets that show blocked access control categories, a list of infected machines, DNS traffic, as well as an overview of threats.

  • Operations. This dashboard contains widgets that show installed ETP Clients, errors for ETP Client, DNS activity by locations, overview of threats, and traffic that is directed to ETP Proxy.
