Generate, schedule, and view reports about devices, risks, and (for medical IoT) device utilization.
The Reports section (
Logs & Reports
) is where you can view and download reports of various types:
  • Summary
    provides a summary of device inventory, risk assessment, and alerts.
  • Discovery
    provides a view of devices that
    IoT Security
    discovered on your network, their distribution in different subnets/VLANs, and devices with high-risk scores and pending alerts.
  • New Device
    reports all the new devices detected on your network since the last report.
    IoT Security
    can generate reports on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
  • Risk
    summarizes all risks associated with IoT devices. It reports an overall risk score, at-risk devices, alerts, vulnerabilities, risk-related trends, and the status of risk remediation efforts.
  • Inventory Gap
    IoT Security
    is integrated with a CMMS) shows devices discovered by
    IoT Security
    , those in your CMMS (computerized maintenance management system) inventory, and where the two sets of devices do and do not overlap.
  • Utilization
    provides data visualizations about medical IoT device operations and usage.
  • Filtered Inventory
    prepares a device inventory report using a previously defined filter of your choice from the Devices page.
There are two ways to generate a report—immediately and scheduled. The scheduled reports can be generated either once or on a recurring basis.
  • Discovery reports can be generated only immediately
  • All the other report types must be scheduled
  • Risk reports and Utilization reports can be generated both ways

Configure Reports

You can configure your reports to either generate on demand or schedule them to be generated at a later date.
Generate a Report Now
You can only generate Discovery, Utilization, and Risk reports immediately; all others must be scheduled. To generate a report immediately, click the
icon on the top right of the reports page and select
Generate a report now
. Provide or choose the required details and click
  • Report type
    : Choose the report type from the drop-down list.
  • Report Name
    : Enter a name for the report.
  • Sites
    : You can choose all sites, an individual site, or–if you arranged your sites in hierarchical groups–a group of sites.
  • Alert Severity
    Risk Level
    : For Discovery reports, alert severity is for security alerts and risk level is for vulnerabilities. You can choose one, two, or three severity and risk levels.
    IoT Security
    will filter the devices it includes in the Discovery report based on your choices. If you leave these empty, then alert severities and risk levels aren't used to filter which devices to include in the report.
  • Device type
    : Optional for Risk reports; choose all device types or one or more individual types (automotive, industrial, medical, and so on). For Discovery reports, choose from either discovered or monitored. “Discovered” are devices that
    IoT Security
    knows are on the internal network but it's not monitoring and protecting. “Monitored” devices are also on the internal network and
    IoT Security
    is monitoring their network activity to do device profiling, behavioral analysis, and risk monitoring.
  • Device Category
    : For Utilization reports, the device category field for an Inventory report is limited to infusion systems and image scanners (X-ray machines, UltraSound machines, MRI machines, CT scanners, and PET scanners).
  • Subscribe
    : Choose the email address to which you want to send the reports.
  • Select a time range
    : Choose from the available time ranges or create a custom time range for which you want to generate reports.
The report gets generated in a few moments and is available on the reports page.
Schedule a Report for Later
Scheduled reports can be generated once or on a recurring basis. All reports can be scheduled except Discovery and Utilization reports.To schedule a report for a later date, click the
sign on the top right of the reports page and select
Schedule a report for later
. Provide or select the required details and click
In addition to the fields described in the the previous section, fields specific to scheduled reports are described below.
  • Scope
    : For Summary reports, this decides what the report will include and can either be set as Site or Device Type (automotive, industrial, medical, and so on). Choosing
    does not filter for sites or device types.
  • Saved Filters/Queries
    (optional): For Filtered Inventory reports, choose from the saved filters from the drop-down.
  • Set a recurring schedule
    : You can schedule reports to be run on a daily, weekly, monthly, or custom time basis.
    • Summary reports: Weekly, Monthly on Day 1
    • Risk reports: Daily, Weekly, Monthly on Day 1, Custom schedule (set to any day and time of the week)
    • New Device and Filtered Inventory reports: Daily, Weekly, Monthly on Day 1
    The first time a scheduled report is generated, it will include data that
    IoT Security
    gathered over the time period set in the report configuration. For example, if you create a monthly recurring New Device report on 27 October to start on the first of the month,
    IoT Security
    will generate its first report on November 1 with 31 days worth of new devices starting from October 1. The same holds true for daily and weekly scheduled reports. After a scheduled report is initially generated,
    IoT Security
    continues to produce reports at the specified interval with data in each new report gathered during the time since the last one.
The report is now scheduled to be generated at the time you selected. Similar to immediate reports, this report is also available on the Reports page.

View Reports

You can view your reports in either the card view or list view. The view setting is in the upper right of the Reports page between the
icon and Search field.
card view
on the Reports page displays similar reports grouped inside a card. Cards are grouped by three parameters: Report type, Scope, and Schedule. For example:
  • All Discovery reports with a scope set as “All Sites, Discovered” and a schedule set as 1 day are grouped together under a single card.
  • All Summary reports with a scope set as “All Sites, Monitored” and a schedule set as “Weekly on Friday at 5 PM” are grouped together under another single card.
list view
on the Reports page displays all reports in a list format. You can sort the reports according to Report name, Configuration, Scope, and so on. You can delete a report only in the list view.
Similar reports by multiple users are grouped together under a single card in the card view. Similar reports by multiple users can be viewed by sorting them in the list view. A report generated by a user can have multiple versions.

as can be seen in the following sample use case:
John and Beryl generate the same report: Discovery report with a scope set as “Paris, Discovered” and a schedule set as 1 day. The reports of both are placed inside a single card. Each time John clicks
Generate now
to generate his report, the
View report history (n)
increases incrementally. For example, when you see View report history (3) for John’s report, it means that John has generated his report three times. So,
View report history
indicates the different versions of the same report by the same user. The
View report 1 of 2
at the bottom indicates that this report (which is also the latest) was generated by John and that there’s a second, similar type of Discovery report generated by some other user.
To view the second user’s report, click
at the bottom of the card, the number now changes to
View report 2 of 2
(see image below). Report 2 was generated by Beryl. Beryl generated her report four times, so we now see
View report history (4)
View Reports in a Browser
Because Summary, Connectivity, Discovery, Risk, Inventory, and Utilization reports are generated as HTML, they can be viewed in a browser. To view your reports, click on
View Report History (n)
View Report (m) of (n)
on the report. You can also print and download them as PDF files.
Download Reports to View
Because New Device reports and Filtered Inventory reports are generated as .csv files, they can only be viewed in a spreadsheet reader or editor after downloading them. To download your reports, click on
View Report History (n)
View Report (m) of (n)
on the report.

Edit, Copy, and Disable Reports

Click the Action menu icon (
) on a report to edit, copy, and disable it.
Edit Reports
Edit a report to adjust settings. For example, you might want to increase or decrease the frequency of a scheduled report or add or remove subscribed email addresses.
You can also generate a scheduled report on demand instead of waiting for the scheduled time. When you click
Generate Now
for scheduled reports,
IoT Security
generates a report based on the period of time-daily, weekly, or monthly-that's set in the configuration, going back a day, a week, or a month from the moment you clicked
Generate Now
and generates a report for till that moment. For example, if you have a New Device report scheduled to be generated every Monday at 3:00 AM and you click
Generate Now
on Wednesday at 10:00 AM, you’ll then get a report for a full week (7 days) from the previous Wednesday at 10:00 AM up to the moment you clicked
Generate Now
Copy Reports
Copy a report to keep your original report but create another one based on it with some changes; for example, you might want to regularly generate two New Device reports-one report each day for a daily sanity check and another each month for a monthly team report.
Disable Reports
Disable a report to suspend its scheduled generation, perhaps during a scheduled network maintenance. However, you can still view existing reports while it’s disabled. You can enable the report again later when you want to resume its use.
