Although Security Analytics has five pre-configured roles, you can add custom roles. For example, in addition to the pre-configured Analysts role you can add custom roles for AnalystsEurope and AnalystsAsia. 

AdministratorsFull system access
OperatorsAccess to configurations but not to data
AnalystsAccess to data but not to configurations
SOC_ManagersSame access as Analysts plus additional permission to handle incidents
Malware_AnalystsAccess to malware events only

Depending on the user role, you can set the following access permissions to access the Warehouse Analytics module:

  • Define Jobs
  • Delete Jobs
  • Manage Jobs
  • View Jobs
