In Malwarebytes Cloud Platform, an Event is a general term for a threat that has occurred, remediation or other action taken on a threat, and other endpoint-related activity. Similarly, queued or pending endpoint actions are referred to as Tasks. This article provides a brief overview of the Events and Tasks screens and how they are useful for endpoint management.

 

Events

This screen displays a record of threats, remediation and other activities on endpoints. The bar graph at the top of the screen shows system activities over the past 30 days. Use the drop-down lists to filter the entries shown.

 

There are several types of events, varying in severity. Here's a sample of each event severity type:

  • Severe: A threat has been found.
  • Warning: A threat has been cleaned.
  • Info: A scan has finished.
  • Audit: An endpoint has been registered, or an exclusion has happened at the policy level.

 

 

Next to an event, click the timestamp to show details. If an event is related to a policy level exclusion, hover over the Policies item to show the policies affected. If the event is a Threat Found, click the View Report link to check out the report for the scan that identified the threat.


Tasks

This screen shows on-demand activities requested on endpoints. These activities can be asset management scans, malware scans, quarantine restore, or quarantine delete. The timeframe displayed is the last 30 days.

 

Details regarding each activity are logged. These details may include who issued the command, which endpoint was affected, and when the command occurred. The current status of the task is also shown.

 

Use the drop-down menus at the top of the screen to limit the number of entries shown.

 

Any pending tasks that the endpoint hasn't handled within 90 days expire and are automatically removed from the Tasks list.
