FortiView Monitors dashboards

FortiView Monitors include predefined dashboards.

Both predefined and custom dashboards can be modified with widgets, including: Threats widgets, Compromised Hosts widgets, Traffic widgets, Applications & Websites widgets, VPN widgets, WiFi widgets, Endpoints widgets, Local System Performance widgets, Global Threat Research widgets, Security Fabric widgets, FortiClient Software Inventory widgets, Shadow IT widgets, and FortiFirewall widgets (Traffic and VPN).

For example, the default Threat Monitor dashboard includes four widgets: Threat Map, Top Threat Destinations, Top Threats, and Top Virus Incidents Over Time. These widgets can be removed, enlarged, reduced, or customized, and new widgets can be added to the dashboard.
