Endpoint activity over time reference

Overview

The Endpoint activity over time graph on the Risk Exposure dashboard shows all file activity that has occurred on an endpoint across your organization for up to the last 90 days.

Endpoint activity over time shows when files are moved to a cloud sync folder on an endpoint, but does NOT include files in your cloud services that were made public (permissions were increased). To see when files in your cloud services are made public, see the Cloud sharing over time graph or the Cloud sharing tab of the All activity view.

To view the Endpoint activity over time graph, sign in to the Code42 console.

For more information about the Risk Exposure dashboard, see: 

For more information about how to use these dashboards, see Review unusual file activity with the Risk Exposure dashboard.

For permissions, licensing, and visibility considerations for the Risk Exposure dashboard, see Risk Exposure dashboard reference

d On removable media Displays when files have been moved to an external device such as a USB drive or hard drive. Click a point on the graph to see the vendor name of the removable media device.
Removable media vendor preview
If vendor details do not appear in this view, you can still view them in Forensic Search. The removable media vendor is not available in this view for file events that occurred prior to August 12, 2020.

For example, you may see vendor details when looking at the last 7 days of file events, but if you switch to 90 days and that view includes file events that occurred before August 12, 2020, those details will not be available in this view. Instead, click Investigate in Forensic Search to see those details.
