Monitor > Automated Correlation Engine > Correlated Events

Correlated events expand the threat detection capabilities on the firewall and Panorama; the correlated events gather evidence of suspicious or unusual behavior of users or hosts on the network.
The correlation object makes it possible to pivot on certain conditions or behaviors and trace commonalities across multiple log sources. When the set of conditions specified in a correlation object are observed on the network, each match is logged as a correlated event.
The correlated event includes the details listed in the following table.
Match Time
The time the correlation object triggered a match.
Update Time
The timestamp when the match was last updated.
Object Name
The name of the correlation object that triggered the match.
Source Address
The IP address of the user from whom the traffic originated
Source User
The user and user group information from the directory server, if User-ID™ is enabled.
A rating that classifies the risk based on the extent of damage caused.
A description that summarizes the evidence gathered on the correlated event.
To view the detailed log view, click Details ( icon_spyglass_log.png ) for an entry. The detailed log view includes all the evidence for a match:
