Processing Overview

You can select to view data for the last week, month or even the last year. The height of the bar represents the volume of files processed by MetaDefender for Secure Storage. Hover over it to see more details:

The processed quantity field represents the total amount of data processed with MetaDefender for Secure Storage. This quantity will exceed your actual storage data if you have triggered more than one process in the defined time unit (day or month). That is because every time you process a file this quantity will be increased even if you’ve processed the same file multiple times.

The number of suspicious files, as well as the counters on the top of the page, represent unique files. If the hash of the file has not changed, MetaDefender for Secure Storage will only count it once.

Active processes

The right-side area of the dashboard allows you to trigger an instant process of your storage. To do this, click Start process and give this process a name so you can easily identify later.

This process represents an Instant process and will produce a report that has ‘Instant’ as a type. This is useful for your to differentiate between scheduled and instant processes.

Please note that this might take a while if your storage contains a significant amount of data. While it is possible for one (or more!) scheduled processes to start while an instant process is running we recommend to avoid that for large storage units.

If that happens, however, you will see a list of your currently running processes in the right-side area for the dashboard and be able to switch between them.

As you can see in the picture below, when a process is in progress the panel will display basic information about this process like the number of pending, blocked or failed files.

Click Process details if you want to see more information about this process. You will be redirected to a page that contains the following information:

  • The progress of the discovery

  • Progress of the overall process

  • Individual file processing progress

Ongoing process details

When clicking Process details you will be redirected to the ongoing process page:

Here you can find the information we previously mentioned as well as the time elapsed since this process was started. Click back if you want to go back to the dashboard.

High Risk Accounts

On the right side of the dashboard, you can find the High Risk Accounts section, which presents you the number of user accounts from your storage unit that contain potentially dangerous files (this feature is available for OneDrive and Box storage units).
