Perception Update - User Interface Updates

Added ability for user to disable live updates to the screen, shortcut links to useful external websites and download packet capture option from alert detail view.

When reviewing the summary list of alerts this option allows the user to disable live updates.

Part of the process of reviewing alerts involves looking up details pertaining to alert meta-data on external websites (e.g. IP addresses, URLs etc.).  This feature provides shortcut links to these websites directly from the alert detail screen. 

When reviewing the alerts, analysts typically require easy access to the packet captures associated with the alert.  This feature allows the analyst to download the packet capture directly from the alert detail view.

We’re constantly trying to make the Perception UI as easy to use and effective as possible for our analysts and self-monitored customers.  As a result we’ve made some small modifications to how the UI behaves so that reviewing and investigating is simpler and faster.  After all, a happy analyst is an effective analyst.

This update is SOC based, and is now actively in use by all analysts working on monitored customers.  Self-monitored customers can update their own SOC boxes using the software upgrade process.  If you have any further questions about this upgrade please contact us at
