Screen shot of Dashboard
What is this thing?This is the management dashboard for a Next Generation Intrusion Protection Device.
The NextGen IPS device like a fancy firewall that understands the content in corporate IP traffic which allows corporate management to monitor and control traffic by user (or contrived) groups, application type and more.
Here are some examples of what this device can do (and what you can manage via this dashboard):
- A manager could allow all employees to view Facebook, but not allow the Finance group to use Facebook Chat application.
- A manager could view which applications are hogging the corporate bandwidth
- A manager could see who's trying to send credit card or SSN information across the network
