The new flexible, interactive custom dashboard experience uses actionable data to optimize user operations and workflows.

Sophos Central is the AI-native security platform used by more than 600,000 organizations worldwide to secure their organization against ransomware and breaches. It enables customers to connect and control all of their cyber defenses in a single interface, reducing day-to-day management overheads and accelerating protection.

Simplifying security management and increasing operational efficiencies has always been at the heart of Sophos Central. Today, I’m pleased to announce a further major step on that mission with the introduction of custom dashboards.

This new feature makes it easy to curate a single view within a managed customer environment using a variety of data points, ranging from threats and endpoint signals to alerts and firewall telemetry. You can now replace your Sophos Central landing page with the dashboard of your choice.

Quickly create the views you need

With an elevated, intuitive user experience and flexible layout, creating customized dashboards is quick and easy, ensuring the content that matters most to you is always at your fingertips. Data visualizations (widgets) offer interactive filtering with actionable data, enabling you to drill down for further details and context when you need it.
With widgets already available for most Sophos products, it takes mere minutes to create estate-wide views that eliminate security silos. Exclusively available to partner administrators is the ability to use the same estate-wide view across managed customers within the same data region. Whether you want a single dashboard with diverse types of data, targeted views of specific data, or all the above, the custom dashboards do it all.

Feature highlights

Key features of the dashboards include:

  • User-based: Create and modify dashboards to build your own bespoke views of the information you need across managed tenants within the same data region
  • Flexible: Customizable layout allows resizing and rearranging
  • Extensive: We currently have more than 17 interactive widgets, each offering multiple views:
  • Account health, device health, threats, firewall connectivity, XDR and MDR
