Log files are boring.

Yep, I said it. They’re overwhelming and while it’s not hard to build a report around them, you often need to import the data into another tool like Excel to make it truly easy to understand. From there, if you need high level insights for consistent reporting, you might need to clean up the data or manipulate it. In today’s day and age of active threat monitoring and constant report building, there needs to be a better way to visualize file data.

That’s why interactive visual analytics tools are necessary and exactly why we built our SmartStats visual dashboard for our on-prem customers. The goal? To give you a quick way to breakdown audit data regarding your files and users. But telling you about it is one thing, showing you is another. Here are 3 videos that show you the power of visual file analytics.
