Reports

Overview

The REPORTS tab in the Alert Logic console provides access to data related to exposures and incidents Alert Logic found within your deployments. You can also view data related to your product usage within your accounts.

Report data is cached and refreshed on regular intervals, so delays in reflecting the latest data seen in the console are possible.

Depending on your Alert Logic subscriptions, you will see some or all of the following report types:

  • Interactive reports—Provide interactive filtering options, visual representations of the data, and informative tooltips. All subscriptions see this content.
  • Scheduled reports—Allow you to schedule reports on a regular basis. To see this content, you must have a Cloud Defender, Threat Manager, Log Manager, Web Security Manager Premier, or Web Security Manager subscription.
  • WAF reports—Provide policy configuration settings and WAF activity statistics. To see this content, you must have a Web Security Manager Premier subscription.
  • Usage reports—Provide data related to log collegtion and network IDS traffic volumes. To see this content, you must have a Cloud Defender, Threat Manager, or Log Manager subscription.

Each report allows you to share its data by email, or to download the report as an image, data, crosstab or PDF format.

Interactive reports

Interactive Reports provide convenient access to analysis, statistics, and trending data related to the configuration, status, and outcomes from your subscribed products and services. Each report provides interactive filtering options, visual representations of the data, and informative tooltips.

Report data is cached and refreshed on regular intervals, so delays in reflecting the latest data seen in the console are possible.

Alert Logic provides interactive reports within the following categories:

  • AWS Incident Analysis Reports—Provide valuable insights and trending data for incidents discovered in your AWS environments by from Network IDS and incidents generated by Amazon GuardDuty security findings.
  • CIS Benchmarks—Provide assessments of how your environment conforms to configuration guidelines developed by the Center for Internet Security (CIS).
  • Environment Exposure Trends—Provide summary trending data for exposures within Cloud Insight environments, and provides you with at-a-glance statistics for changes over a specified time period, and for specified environments.
  • Reports—Provide valuable insights and trending data for incidents created from all subscribed detection sources (Network IDS, Log Management, Web Application IDS, Amazon GuardDuty).
  • Product Usage—Provide information regarding the billable size of your scoped Cloud Insightdeployments, which correlate to the amount billed for a given usage period. To generate the same information for Log Manager or Threat Manager subscriptions, see Usage reports.
  • Service Review—Provides summary information and visibility into product configuration, product status, and security outcomes from your subscribed services.
  • Vulnerability Analysis—Allows you to visualize and group vulnerabilities to identify patterns and outliers for assets within a Cloud Insight environment.
  • Vulnerability Reports—Provide tabular reports that list the vulnerabilities discovered withing your scoped Cloud Insight environments.

AWS Incident Analysis Reports

You can run the following reports that provide information about incidents in your AWS environments generated by Network IDS.

  • AWS Incident Daily Digest: Displays the incidents received the previous day for the selected deployments. You can view the List of Incidents by threat level, classification type, or by GuardDuty findings. You can filter this report by deployment, VPC, container image, and detection source.
  • AWS Incident Daily Digest Trends: Allows you to view a histogram chart that displays the incident daily digests for specified date range, and by deployment, VPC, container image, and detection source.
  • AWS Risk Summary: Displays the risk level for a selected group of assets, by incident count and average exposure score. The quadrant in which the selected asset group appears, and its color, indicates the risk level for the assets. You can filter the report by detection source, AWS asset, AWS account ID, date range, deployment, threat level, and CVSS Score.
  • AWS Incident Distribution Explorer: Displays incidents by threat level, classification, and incident type for a specified time period. You can filter the report by date range, detection source, deployment, and AWS account ID, container image, subnet, security group, and tag.
  • AWS Targeted Deployment Explorer: Displays the GuardDuty and Network IDS incident distribution for a specified target (AWS account ID, regions, VPC, container image, security group or subnet), filtered by AWS account ID, date range, detection source, deployment, and AWS asset within your deployments.
  • AWS Targeted Deployment Trends: Displays an interactive graph depicting incident distribution for a specified time period, by account ID, AWS region, and AWS asset.

CIS Benchmarks

Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks provide assessments of how your environment conforms to CIS Foundations Benchmark Level 2. For more information about CIS Benchmarks, see the CIS Benchmarks FAQ.

Environment Exposure Trends

Environment exposure trend reports provide summary trending data for exposures within Cloud Insight Essentials deployments, and provide you with at-a-glance statistics for changes over a specified time period, and for specified deployments.

  • Exposure Assessment Trends: Allows you to analyze the overall exposure and average exposure, per vulnerability, of Cloud Insight Essentials deployments over a selected time period.
  • Severity Trends: Allows you view the percentage of hosts with the worst exposures in the high, medium, and low rating categories. Use the graph to determine whether you are adequately addressing exposures.

Incident Analysis

Incident Analysis reports provide valuable insights and trending data for incidents created from all subscribed detection sources (Network IDS, Log Management, Web App IDS, Amazon GuardDuty).

  • Incident Daily Digest: Presents the incidents detected on the previous day for the selected detection types. You can view visualizations and list of incidents by threat level, by classification, or by incident type.
  • Incident Daily Digest Trends: Presents a histogram chart that allows you to focus on the daily incident digests results within the specified date range. You can view visualizations and list of incidents by threat level, by classification, or by incident type.
  • Incident Distribution Explorer: Presents incidents by threat level, classification, and incident type for the selected detection sources, statuses, and a specified time period.
  • Incident Attacker Explorer: Displays the top 10 attackers and geolocations, with visualizations and lists of incidents by threat level, by classification, or by incident type.
