NOC - SOC Monitoring

The NOC (Network Operations Center) and SOC (Security Operations Center) is designed for a network and security operations center where multiple dashboards are displayed in large monitors in a NOC and SOC environment.

NOC - SOC displays both real-time monitoring and historical trends. This centralized monitoring and awareness help you to effectively monitor network events, threats, and security alerts.

Use NOC - SOC dashboards to view multiple panes of network activity, including monitoring network security, compromised hosts, vulnerabilities, Security Fabric, WiFi security, and system performance.

A typical scenario is to set up dashboards and widgets to display information most relevant to your network and security operations. Use the main monitors in the middle to display important dashboards in a bigger size. Then use the monitors on the sides to display other information in smaller widgets.

For example, use the top monitor in the middle to display the Top Threat Destinations widget in full screen, use the monitor(s) below that to display other Security Monitor widgets, use the monitors on the left to display WiFi Monitor widgets at the top and System Performance widgets at the bottom, and use the monitors on the right as a workspace to display widgets showing the busiest network activity. You can move, add, or remove widgets.

Hide the tree menu on the left to display dashboards in full screen.

To prevent timeout, ensure Idle Timeout is greater than the widget's Refresh Interval. See Idle timeout and Settings icon.
