Advanced Analytics Capabilities
This is a product which intends to go beyond the offerings of standard reporting.
Here is a list of some of the key capabilities of Advanced Analytics:
In terms of data availability, it gives you the ability to "slice and dice" over 500 attributes for events and alerts. It also allows you to report on API protection, incidents, policies and CSA data sets. As well as the ability to report on detail and summary data.
For visualisation, it provides a variety of options to choose from whether that bar, pie, trend lines, tables, pivots etc. It also offers advanced options such as Sankey diagrams, Treemaps, Gauge and others.
The reporting capabilities offer a variety of predefined reports which address different personas. It also produces an automated cloud risk assessment, something which was previously offered but not automated as well as the ability to drill down with interactive widgets and reports.
Other aspects worth mentioning including the standard abilities such as exporting to CSV, Excel, PDF and the ability to create custom fields, table calculations, custom filters and more sorting options.
The dashboards offer a comprehensive look into your analytics which are fully customisable. The dashboard is relatively easy to use, and information is all displayed clearly. Overall, it is nice to look at and is not too complex, even though it is offering such a large variety of information. Below are some images which give you a sneak peek, but of course the best way to see this product in action is through a demo.
