Data Visualization Toolset
Here are a few Feature Request for you - I would like to see the integration of more powerful data visualization toolsets into enVision.
Treemaps would be an excellent starting point. Perhaps drill down capabilities within the treemaps.
Also a device network map that can automatically be generated from a Managed Monitored Device List would be awesome. This could tie into the alerting process to show attack vectors, etc.
These toolsets would give enVision the competitive advantage it needs to combat some of the newer SIM tools in the market place that already have some portion of these integrated within their systems.
Any plans for these? If you would like further input I would be more than willing to contribute.
Some good books on data visualization if anyone is interested:

I am trying to promote some of these ideas internally as we continue to evolve the envision solution. Please comment on the ideas you like.
I was just wondering if we have a solution for the data visualization toolset? Archer reporting and dashboard is tedious and not that flexible. Do you guys have or are planning a solution other than having to use a third-party?
