Monitor Activity and Create Custom Reports Based on Threat
Threat categories classify different types
of threat signatures to help you understand and draw connections
between events threat signatures detect. Threat categories are subsets of
the more broad threat signature types: spyware, vulnerability, antivirus,
and DNS signatures. Threat log entries display the
for each recorded event.
Filter Threat logs by threat category.
Add the Threat Category column so you can view the
Threat Category for each log entry:

Threat Category and in the

to the filter:

Select the Threat Category to filter all ACC tabs.
Create custom reports based on threat categories to receive
information about specific types of threats that the firewall has
as the source for the custom report—in this case, select
either of the two types of database sources, summary databases and Detailed logs. Summary
database data is condensed to allow a faster response time when
generating reports. Detailed logs take longer to generate but provide
an itemized and complete set of data for each log entry.
In the Query Builder, add a report filter with the
and in the Value
field, select a threat category on which to base your report.
