To make the investigation more accurate and more efficient it’s recommended that you apply filters.

From the following table you can choose which filter you are going to use. Notice that you can apply multiple filters simultaneously.  Once you click on a filter a new typing field is added. You can add/remove filters easily as you see fit.

The cyber detection page

The cyber detection page in the Barac ETV Platform reveals any attempt of breach sorted by severity from low to critical with time details.

Users can simply open an investigation of any displayed beach in this page directly and with a simple click on the “Endace URL”  button view any detected attack within the Endace vision page.

Once you click on the “Endace URL” button , the attributes of the beach detected by the Barac ETV platform will automatically be taken and used to generate the pivot to vision URL and create an investigation for this attack in the Endace Vision console which will let you analyze the packets and understand more about this breach.

For example the values of the start and the end of the detected attack will be automatically used instead of adding filter and typing manually , as well as the ip address and ports
