What do I get out of the box?


We know how important it is that you get access to your data as soon as possible. After all, your business depends on it. 


Because of that, we took the time to build out default gauges (KPIs), pre-built dashboards, and report templates, available to you the day you open a BrightGauge account.


With Sophos, you get 26 KPIs, 2 dashboards, and 1 report.


Gauges (KPIs)


The defaults that come with the Sophos integration relate to alerts, endpoints, and tenants. 


Alerts are notifications generated in Sophos that require administrative action and come in categories such as ‘general’, ‘updating’, and ‘connectivity’. They are classified by severity. 


Endpoints are defined as a server, computer, or other device protected and managed by Sophos. 


A tenant is a collection of resources such as devices, events, policies, and people. 


With these BrightGauge KPIs, track the status of your endpoints, the severity of your threats and alerts, and your total number of tenants.

Two default Sophos dashboards give you a bird’s-eye view of where you stand at any given time. Access these right off the bat so you don’t miss a beat when it comes to your important data. 



Custom reports are powerful because they show a real sense of transparency between you and your team or you and your clients, which helps build important long-term relationships. 


With BrightGauge, build your own reports, or get started with a report template. The Sophos report template shows Endpoint and Alert data for a given period of time.
