Scheduled reporting in RDS
The RDS portal user can configure daily, weekly and monthly reports on detections perceived in the monitored IT environment. The reports contain information about detections, sensors and the threat intelligence from public honeypots.
Each report includes an overview page showing the trend for all detections in different detection states (Confirmed, Unconfirmed and False Positive), and a summary of all Endpoint, Network and Honeypot sensor detections reported by the Rapid Detection and Response Center (RDC) analysts during the reporting period. Also, the amount of sensors that have been seen online during the past 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days is included in the reports.
Attention: Reports include potentially sensitive information, such as hostnames and detection descriptions, so bear this aspect in mind before sharing downloaded reports as email attachments.
Reports are downloaded from the portal and portal users can create as many scheduled reports as they need.
