Retina Insight Pivot Grids, Custom Report Sharing on BeyondTrust Forums

Posted May 29, 2012    Morey Haber

Around this time last year I wrote a blog on the Pivot Grids within Retina Insight and how they allow a user to custom build historical reports based on almost every piece of data collected by Retina Insight. Recently I spoke with an analyst on this same topic and he was very pleased to see that we have true ad-hoc reporting (vulnerabilities, asset data, and even attacks and malware) built directly into the solution. He also commented that while a few other vendors claim to have “ad-hoc reporting”, they are restricted by templates and conditions of custom report editors. Retina Insight does not have those types of limitations. When we say custom, we mean it. Our users can (truly) customize reports based on any data that is collected from our vulnerability management and endpoint protection solutions and then filter those results, publish them as automatic subscriptions, and even export the templates to be shared with other users and installations.

If you are a Community user of Retina, this is a prime example of the benefits achieved from the licensed solution. And, to take it one step further, we have now created a new Forums page for users to share their Pivot Grid templates so then others can benefit from their handy work. Visit the Forums to Learn More.

Pivot Grids

This new location has new sample templates that can be downloaded and loaded into your Retina Insight, Pivot Grid installation. Our Professional Services and development teams will be contributing to these on a regular basis and will help you build the unique reports based on your business requirements. I would like to personally encourage you to share your templates with the Retina Community and start getting involved by uploading them to this forum as well.

The strength of the solution comes from its flexibility, performance, and ultimately reporting. Learning and sharing with other users will help make your installation of Retina excel in meeting your technical and business requirements.
