Reporting on Security

  • Last updated on

Barracuda Managed Workplace provides predefined Security Assurance reports that you can use to track security audit scores and status, as well as reports that let you track the history and trends of your Security Assessment scores.

Generating Site Security Reports

The following predefined reports present the results of Security Assessments for a Site Security Category, each with a different level of detail and available options:

  • Site Security Summary—Shows the results of the most recent Security Assessment for one or more Site Security Categories. This report generates an easily consumable overview, ideal for showing clients an at- a-glance overview of the assessment.
  • Site Security Report—Shows not only the results of the most recent Security Assessment for one of the Site Security Categories, but also goes into more details on the individual tests, the severity of the test results, and the number of devices put at risk by each test. This report includes the option to hide unassessed tests.
  • Site Security Detailed Report—Shows the results of each test in a Site Security Category as well as the overall score. This report results in a report that goes into the most detail of any of the reports, providing information on the test itself, what the impact of the test it, suggested remediation steps, as well as a complete list of the devices put at risk by the test. This report includes the option to hide unassessed tests.

If you run a site security report on a site that doesn't have a site security assessment running, the generated report will be empty since there is no data for that site.

To see the Predefined Site Security Reports

  1. In Service Center, click Reporting > Reports.
  2. Click the arrow next to the category where your saved your Site Security Reports.

    The default category is Network Assessment.

  3. Click any of the site security reports:
    • Site Security Summary
    • Site Security Report
    • Site Security Detailed Report

You can change the Site Security Category that the report displays for a selected site. By default, the category is set to Site, but you can go to the Content tab and select the category you want to report on. For the Site Security Summary, you can report on multiple categories. Each category you add appears on a different page of the report.

Before previewing or scheduling these reports, you can edit the report properties by clicking the report name, then clicking the Content tab to see the available options.

To create custom reports for each category, make a copy of the report with a new name and then change the category of the report. For example, to create an Antivirus Security Detailed report, copy the Site Security Detailed report and give it the name "Antivirus Security Detailed report", then open the report and choose the Antivirus Security category.

  • Network Assessment is a report category. Categories are editable, so if you have edited the title of the category, the category won't be called Network Assessment.
  • In Barracuda Managed Workplace 11 SP1 and earlier, Site Security Assessment reports were in the Security Assurance category by default. In Barracuda Managed Workplace 11 SP2 and later, they are downloaded to the Network Assessment category by default.

Generating Site Security History Reports

The following predefined reports present the history of Security Assessments for any of the categories on the Site Security Dashboard, each with a different level of detail and available options:

  • Site Security Daily Historical Report—Shows a history of the results of a site's security assessment score for a Site Security Category over a period of time. Data points are reported on a daily basis.
  • Site Security Weekly Historical Report—Shows a history of the results of a site's security assessment score for a Site Security Category over a period of time. Data points are calculated as the mean average of the results over each week.
  • Site Security Monthly Historical Report—Shows a history of the results of a site's security assessment score for a Site Security Category over a period of time. Data points are calculated as the mean average of the results over each month.
  • Site Security Historical Trend Report—Shows the trend of your security scores in one or more of the security categories. This report helps you visualize the trends in your security scores over a period of time that you choose.

If you run a site security historical report on a site that doesn't have a site security assessment running, the generated report will be empty, since there is no data for that site.
