Introduction

Security teams today work together to identify and defend against the massive number of cyberthreats out in the world today.

Manually sifting through all that data may be overwhelming, but by streamlining the views to present meaningful information for each role, it enables increased efficiency and simplifies tasks.

CrowdStrike provides fully customizable dashboards to ensure that the various roles on the security teams are provided with the information that they need. The dashboards go beyond just allowing static prebuilt widgets that can be moved around on a page, but provide customizable data views that enable each individual widget to be tailored for the analyst.

This ensures that each team member can see relevant information quickly and minimizes the time required to remediate any issues identified.
