Control Evaluations

The Monitor tab shows a complete picture of the security posture.

Various calculations portraying the security posture of the controls evaluated.

Let us see what each number signifies

1 - Total number of controls that are evaluated

2 - Total number of evaluations. A unique combination of resource and control is treated as one evaluation.

3 - Number of evaluations that Passed

4 - Number of evaluations with Failed

5 - Number of failed evaluations with high criticality

6 - Number of failed evaluations with medium criticality

7 - Number of failed evaluations with low criticality

Note: When you change criticality of a control, the revised control criticality for existing evaluations is effective upon next connector run.

Each control is evaluated against the applicable resources which is represented by Total Resources. Number represented by green represents the number of pass resources that have the desired configuration as per the control. Number represented by red represents the number of failed resources.

Click any control to get details of all the resources evaluated against the control.
