Web Reputation events

This article covers how to access and work with web reputation events. For general best practices related to events, see Events in Deep Security.

To see the web reputation events captured by Deep Security, go to Events & Reports > Events > Web Reputation Events.

What information is displayed for web reputation events?

These columns can be displayed on the web reputation events page. You can click Columns to select which columns are displayed in the table.

  • Time: Time the event took place on the computer.
  • Computer: The computer on which this event was logged. (If the computer has been removed, this entry will read "Unknown Computer".)
  • URL: The URL that triggered this event.
  • Tag(s): Event tags associated with this event.
  • Risk: What was the risk level of the URL that triggered the event ("Suspicious", "Highly Suspicious", "Dangerous", "Untested", or "Blocked by Administrator").
  • Rank: Rank provides a way to quantify the importance of events. It is calculated by multiplying the asset value of the computer by the severity of the rule. (See Ranking settings.)
  • Event Origin: Indicates from which part of the Deep Security system the event originated.

See details about an event

Double-clicking an event (or selecting an event and clicking View) displays a window that contains additional information about the event. The Tags tab displays tags that have been attached to this event. For more information on event tagging, see Apply tags to identify and group events.

You can also right-click an event and select Computer Details to open the Computer editor for the computer that generated the event.

Add a URL to the list of allowed URLs

If you want to add the URL that triggered an event to the list of allowed URLs, right-click the event and select Add to Allow List. (To view or edit the Allowed and Blocked lists, go to the Exceptions tab on the main Web Reputation page.)

Find a particular event

You can use the drop-down lists at the top of each events page to filter and group the events. Select the values that you want to filter for and then click the large blue arrow on the right side to apply the filter. You can also use the search bar in the upper-right corner to search for a specific event.

To perform an advanced search, select the drop-down in the search bar and click Open Advanced Search

The Period setting lets you filter the list to display only those events that occurred within a specific time-frame.

The Computers setting lets you organize the display of event log entries by computer groups or policies.

Advanced Search functions (searches are not case sensitive):

  • Contains: The entry in the selected column contains the search string
  • Does Not Contain: The entry in the selected column does not contain the search string
  • Equals: The entry in the selected column exactly matches the search string
  • Does Not Equal: The entry in the selected column does not exactly match the search string
  • In: The entry in the selected column exactly matches one of the comma-separated search string entries
  • Not In: The entry in the selected column does not exactly match any of the comma-separated search string entries

Pressing the "plus" button (+) to the right of the search bar will display an additional search bar so you can apply multiple parameters to your search. When your search parameters are ready, click the large blue arrow on the right side.

Export a list of events

Clicking Export exports all or selected events to a CSV file.

Tag events

Clicking Auto-Tagging displays a list of existing auto-tagging rules that have been applied to the events. You can also right-click an event to manually add or remove tags. (See Apply tags to identify and group events.)
