Activity Log

The Web Security Service maintains log records of all transactions to enable you to review past results and activity. By default, log transactions are stored for 3 months.

This log offers an indication of the amount of transactions per selected period. For each record, the following information is displayed:



Date & Time (UTC)

Shows the date and time of the transaction.

User (email address)

Shows the name of the user that performed the transaction.

Note: N/A is displayed when the user was not available. 


Shows the name of the site from where the transaction was performed.

Note: N/A is displayed when the site was not available.


Shows the transactions protocol type, HTTP or HTTPS or DNS.


Shows the transaction’s host name.

Risk Level

Note: N/A is displayed when the risk level was not calculated. For example, if the transaction was blocked by URL filtering, then the transaction risk level is not calculated.
