What's New! April 2017

New Dashboard Display

We enhanced the dashboard with a more comprehensive summary section which includes an Overview subsection and an Alerts by Ruleset subsection. Additionally, we updated the Infrastructure section and moved some widgets to create a better flow of information.

New Summary Section

The Summary section contains two new subsections: Overview and Alerts by Ruleset.


The Overview subsection displays an “at a glance” view of your Configuration Auditing, Software Vulnerabilities, and Alerts.

  • Configuration Auditing - displays what percentage of your resources passed evaluation out of the number Threat Stack evaluated in your AWS profiles.
  • Software Vulnerabilities - displays packages with high or medium rated CVEs across servers and AMIs.
  • Alerts - displays the number of Severity 1 and Severity 2 alerts that Threat Stack found.

Alerts by Ruleset

The Alerts by Ruleset subsection displays the current number of Severity 1 and Severity 2 alerts associated with each Rule Set you enabled in Threat Stack.

Infrastructure Section

The updated Infrastructure section contains Configuration Auditing Results and results by AWS service. Additionally, it still displays the EC2 properties and CloudTrail widgets. The Infrastructure section displays for Audit, Basic, Advanced and Pro packages.

Unchanged Sections

We did not make any changes to the Host, Vulnerabilities, and Network sections. You will continue to have access to the same data that was previously available.
