About the Antivirus Events Page

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

Use this page to view information about security events based on antivirus policies. The event viewer provides a view of all antivirus events and the action taken by the virus scanner.

The antivirus scanner inspects files transmitted over several protocols to determine if the files exchanged are malicious (for example, viruses, Trojans, rootkits, and 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:

  • View a brief summary of all the antivirus events in your network. See Summary View.

  • View the comprehensive details of events in a tabular format that includes sortable columns. See Detail View.

Summary View

The top of the page has a swim lane graph of all the antivirus events against the blocked events. You can use the widgets at the bottom of the page to view critical information such as top blocked protocol commands, top reasons, and top sources.

Table 1 provides guidelines on using the widgets on the Detail View page.
