The Threats section within the ASE product lists all of the confirmed threats that have been received by ASE from products operating in your account. Depending on the threat object type, ASE will perform additional checks to try and minimise false positives and negatives before accepting the threat. ASE will track the number of times the threat has been detected, which product last detected it and at what time.

The Threats section provides an overview of the threats your account has been exposed to and in conjuction with the Rules section can provide automated response to minimise exposure to the threat.

The core platform products will be the source of the threats that appear in this section. For maximum effectiveness, we recommend licensing Web Security, Email Security and LinkScan. Additional products will support ASE in the coming months.
