ATP Cloud Events and Logs Overview

You can use the ATP Cloud Events page to view the information about security events based on ATP Cloud policies. Analyzing the ATP Cloud logs yields information such as malware name, action taken, infected host, source of an attack, and destination of an attack.

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.

By default, you can view data for all the devices. To view data for a specific device, click on the link beside Devices and select a device.

There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the summary view or the detail view.

ATP Cloud Events—Summary View

Click Summary View for a brief summary of all the ATP Cloud events in your network. 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 top infected hosts, top malware, top source countries, and top destination countries. See Table 1 for descriptions of the widgets in this view.

Table 1: ATP Cloud Events Summary View Widgets



Top Infected Hosts

Top infected hosts based on their associated threat level and blocked status.

Top Malware

Top malware found based on the number of times the malware is detected over a period of time.

Top Source Countries

Top source countries from where the event source originated; sorted by the number of IP addresses.

Top destination countries

Top destination countries targeted for the attack; sorted by the number of destination IP addresses.

ATP Cloud Events—Detail View

Click Detail View for comprehensive details of all ATP Cloud events in a tabular format that includes sortable columns. You can sort the events using the Group by option. For example, you can sort the events based on threat severity. The table includes information such as the event name, source country, source IP, destination country, malware information, and so on.

The Legacy Node option is displayed in the event viewer after the legacy log collector node is added on the Logging Nodes page. We’ve added the legacy log collector support only for read only purpose to view existing log collector data. New logs should point to Security Director Insights VM as the log collector. Select the Legacy Node checkbox to view the existing log collector data. When you clear the Legacy Node checkbox, Security Director Insights log collector data is displayed.
