Understanding the Site Security Dashboard

In Managed Workplace, you can access the Site Security Dashboard to get an overview Antivirus Security, Patch Security, User Security and Network Security. Please see the below image of an environment from a member of the Manager Workplace Support team staff.

Here you can make new, copy, delete or modify Schemas. You can also modify the Security Score Ranges to reflect at a glance the conditions on your Site Security Dashboard.

To modify a schema, you simply click on the hyperlinked name and it will open the following screen.
