About the IPS Events Page

To access this page, click Monitor > Security Events > IPS.

Use the IPS Events page to view information about security events based on IPS policies. Analyzing IPS logs yields useful security management information, such as abnormal events, attacks, viruses, or worms.

Using the time-range slider, you can quickly focus on the area of activity that you are most interested in. Once the time range is selected, all of the data presented in your view is refreshed automatically. You can also use the custom button to set a custom time range.

There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the Summary View tab or the Detail View tab.

Tasks You Can Perform

You can perform the following tasks from this page:

Summary View

The data presented in the area graph is refreshed automatically based on the selected time range. You can use widgets to view critical information such as IPS severities, top sources, top destinations, top reporting devices, top IPS attacks, top source countries, and top destination countries.
