When you open the dope.swg portal, you’ll arrive at the dope.swg dashboard.
The dashboard gives you a comprehensive overview of how dope.swg is working across your organization, so you can see any security issues or threats which exist.
The world map shows the geographic location of each dope endpoint across your organization, each location represented with a colored dot.
Green dot = Active (No policy violations in this area)
Yellow dot = Above average violations in this area (*see note)
Red dot = Error (Endpoint in geolocation is in Error or Fail Open State)
The dots will vary in size:
- The smallest dot displays where 1 to 5 endpoints are running in this location.
- The middle-sized dot displays where 5 to 15 endpoints are running in this location.
- The large dot displays where more than 15 endpoints are running in this location.
You can zoom in to an area on the map or click on a dot to find out more information about what’s going on at each location.
- Total number of devices using the system
- Total volume of data transferred (Uploaded+Downloaded)
- Total number of transactions
- Total policy violations
- All endpoints in Error
- All endpoints in Fallback
The information will appear like below on clicking on the dot.
Sitting comfortably? Alright. At the bottom of the dope.swg analytics overview dashboard, you’ll see this information for the last seven days.
So let’s take a closer look at the details here...
Policy Violations At the bottom left of your dope.swg homepage dashboard, you can see real-time information on the total number of policy violations within your organization over the last seven days. This is updated every 10 seconds.
Violation Detail (Top Blocked Category) This displays the dope category that has generated the most blocks in your organization over the last seven days.
Productivity (Category Most Viewed) This displays the most viewed dope category across your organization over the last seven days.
Shadow IT (Most used cloud app) This displays the most used cloud app across your organization over the last seven days.
Each of these sections is clickable — that click will bring you to the associated analytics view.
Searching the overview dashboard will bring you to the Detail view filtered to show the violation data that matches your search.
When you place your cursor in the search bar in the overview dashboard, you will see some suggestions for the other analytics views that exist i.e. Overview, Policy, Productivity, Shadow IT, Detail.
When you start entering text into the search bar, dope.swg will suggest users, groups or locations that match the text you are entering. You can then search policy violation for a specific user, group or location.
You do not have to select a valid user, group, or location to search the detail view from the overview dashboard. You can simply enter text and the console will search for policy violations for users, groups, or locations starting with the text you have entered.
You need to have imported users and groups’ data into the console to search for groups or locations.
