Take a quick tour of the ACC.
The ACC includes three predefined tabs that provide visibility into network traffic, threat activity, and blocked activity. For information on each tab, see ACC Tabs.
Each tab includes a default set of widgets that best represent the events/trends associated with the tab. The widgets allow you to survey the data using the following filters:
For information on each widget, see ACC Widgets.
The charts or graphs in each widget provide a summary and historic view. You can choose a custom range or use the predefined time periods that range from the last 15 minutes up to the last 30 days or last 30 calendar days. The selected time period applies across all tabs in the ACC.
The time period used to render data, by default, is the Last Hour updated in 15 minute intervals. The date and time interval are displayed onscreen, for example at 11:40, the time range is 01/12 10:30:00-01/12 11:29:59.
The Global Filters allow you to set the filter across all widgets and all tabs. The charts/graphs apply the selected filters before rendering the data. For information on using the filters, see ACC Filters.
The application view allows you filter the ACC view by either the sanctioned and unsanctioned applications in use on your network, or by the risk level of the applications in use on your network. Green indicates sanctioned applications, blue unsanctioned applications, and yellow indicates applications that are partially sanctioned. Partially sanctioned applications are those that have a mixed sanctioned state; it indicates that the application is inconsistently tagged as sanctioned, for example it might be sanctioned on one or more virtual systems on a firewall enabled for multiple virtual systems or across one or more firewalls within a device group on Panorama.
The risk factor (1=lowest to 5=highest) indicates the relative risk based on the applications used on your network. The risk factor uses a variety of factors to assess the associated risk levels, such as whether the application can share files, is it prone to misuse or does it try to evade firewalls, it also factors in the threat activity and malware as seen through the number of blocked threats, compromised hosts or traffic to malware hosts/domains.
The data used for the ACC display. The options vary on the firewall and on Panorama.
On the firewall, if enabled for multiple virtual systems, you can use the Virtual System drop-down to change the ACC display to include data from all virtual systems or just a selected virtual system.
On Panorama, you can select the Device Group drop-down to change the ACC display to include data from all device groups or just a selected device group.
Additionally, on Panorama, you can change the Data Source as Panorama data or Remote Device Data. Remote Device Data is only available when all the managed firewalls are on PAN-OS 7.0.0 or later. When you filter the display for a specific device group, Panorama data is used as the data source.
You can export the widgets displayed in the currently selected tab as a PDF. The PDF is downloaded and saved to the downloads folder associated with your web browser, on your computer.
