How to use custom filters

Learn how to store, use, and delete your own custom filters.

Safetica NXT audits outgoing data transfers from endpoints on which it is installed and provides details about them to the admin. Since users may perform hundreds of such operations every day, Safetica NXT allows them to be filtered in Data security > Overview.

Creating a custom filter

In the Event overview table, you can apply several filters at once and then store this selection as a custom filter under a name. You can then use this custom filter anytime to only display information you are interested in.

There are several default filters available in the My filters drop-down , so you can investigate important issues faster right after deploying Safetica NXT.


To create a custom filter:

1.  Select the desired filters in the Event overview table by clicking and choosing the appropriate options .

2.  To add or remove columns, click above the table .

The other two main elements of the page – the Events per user table and the Events in time chart always change based on the filters selected in the Event overview table.

3.  Click the Save filters button which appears above the table .

4.  Name the filter.

5.  The newly created filter is stored in the My filters drop-down .
