All Alert Logic customers will now experience an updated Alert Logic® console design, which includes the combination of the Alert Logic Cloud Defender® and Alert Logic Cloud Insight™ consoles into one universal and integrated navigation.
More than the console navigation has changed. Many updates have been made to provide you with a richer, more streamlined user experience. This article provides a high-level overview of the new features and improvements that are now available to you within the Alert Logic console.
Note: A detailed and ongoing list of feature locations in the updated Alert Logic console can be found in the Find What You Need in the Alert Logic Console knowledge base article.
The Alert Logic console's navigation has been updated to emphasize actions that customers need to take rather than the product they need to complete the actions with. The main menu navigation has changed, as well as some sub-menu tabs, but most pages still have the same or very similar content within them. Learn more about this change with the Alert Logic Console Navigation Changes knowledge base article.
Role-Based Access Controls
Alert Logic user roles are now being utilized in place of permissions. There are five roles that can be applied to users, all of which provide a certain level of read and edit abilities for your assigned and managed accounts. This move to an industry standard role-based approach allows for a simplified self-service model for managing access controls. Learn more about the roles with the Role-Based Access Controls in Alert Logic Console knowledge base article.
The Alert Logic console now houses interactive reports, which provide analysis, statistics, and trending data related to your subscribed products and services and have interactive filtering options, visual representations of data, and informative tool tips. Two new report groups have also been added to your available reports - Incident Analysis and Service Review reports. Learn more about interactive reports and the new report groups with the Interactive Reports knowledge base article.
Multi-factor authentication is available to all users. Individual users may opt in to utilizing this feature, or administrators can opt all users of an account in, requiring all account users to utilize multi-factor authentication. Learn more about this feature and how to enable it with the Multi-Factor Authentication for Alert Logic Console Log-In knowledge base article.
