Configuration Remediation Trends

The Configuration Remediation Trends report evaluates the overall responsiveness of your organization to known issues in the Remediations page that degrade the effectiveness of collection, scanning, detection, or response capabilities deployed in your environment.

To access the Configuration Remediation Trend:

  1. In the Alert Logic console, click Reports, and then click Remediations.
  2. Click Configuration Remediations, and then click Configuration Remediation Trends.

To refine your findings, you can filter your report by Date Range, Customer Account, Deployment Name, Network, and Asset Tags.

By default, Alert Logic includes (All) filter values in the report.

To add or remove values in a filter:

  1. Click the drop-down menu in the filter, and then select or clear values.
  2. Click Apply.
