FireEye Events Dashboard

by Josef Weiss
July 23, 2014

When managing an organization’s risk, being able to evaluate security events is an important first stage. Understanding potential indicators of compromise allows organizations to better manage evolving threats. The FireEye Events Dashboard displays a summary status of FireEye events, providing an overview of collected events using several techniques. This dashboard further allows organizations to consolidate event data from multiple devices into one location, without the need for individual access.

Organizations have the responsibility to translate a mountain of security data to understand the security risk imposed on them. This dashboard displays events collected from a FireEye device and includes indicators based on triggered FireEye events. Organizations that utilize FireEye platforms to protect themselves against advanced cyber threats will benefit from this dashboard.

Using FireEye audit checks, this report highlights the pass/fail results of audit checks, allowing a security analyst to review the configuration and status of the device without requiring device management privileges. This information provides risk managers and system administrators with a list of items which require immediate focus and provides leadership with easy to understand pass/fail audit findings.

With this information, security teams and system administrators can better understand possible gaps in threat prevention which require additional focus. When using this dashboard, the security team can easily identify and focus on specific problem areas and triggered events that require further investigation. System administrators can take the same information to help set the priority to corrective actions and mitigation strategies. Overall this dashboard is beneficial to several groups within the organization to better reduce cyber risk.

The dashboard is available in the SecurityCenter Feed, a comprehensive collection of dashboards, reports, Assurance Report Cards and assets. The report can be easily located in the SecurityCenter Feed under the category Threat Detection & Vulnerability Assessments. The dashboard requirements are:

  • SecurityCenter 4.8.2
  • LCE 5.0.2
