The Status Dashboards
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
The Threats tab of the Status > Dashboard page appears first when you log on to the Web module of the Forcepoint Security Manager. It shows information about suspicious activity that may be related to malware threats in your network (see Threats dashboard).
All dashboard elements are visible to Super Administrators. Most other elements are available to delegated administrators with permission to view reports on the Status > Dashboard page (see Editing roles).

The first time an administrator logs on to the Security Manager and navigates away from the Status > Dashboard page, the Save and Deploy button activates. This happens regardless of whether any changes were made, in order to save default dashboard settings for each administrator account.
After the initial defaults are saved, navigating away from the dashboard activates the Save and Deploy button only when charts are added, removed, or edited.
In addition to Threats, the dashboard includes 3 other tabs:
*
Risks shows information about blocked and permitted requests for URLs that fall into the Security Risk class. See Risks dashboard.
*
Usage shows information about traffic patterns in your network, including bandwidth information and summaries of blocked and permitted requests. See Usage dashboard.
*
System shows alert messages, status information, and graphical charts that show the current state of your deployment, focusing on Internet activity in your network. See System dashboard.
The Risks, Usage, and System dashboards can each display up to 12 elements (charts, status summaries, or counters) at a time. Most dashboard charts can be customized to change their time period (today, last 7 days, last 30 days, and so on) and their display format (stacked column, stacked area, multi-series line, and so on). You can include multiple versions of the same chart on a tab (for example, showing different time periods).
*
All elements on a tab are also updated when any element on the tab is modified. For example, if the time period for one chart is changed, data is refreshed in all of the elements on the page.
