The ZeroLock® Management Console - Dashboard

Details regarding the user interface of the ZeroLock Management Console's main Dashboard

    The home screen of the ZeroLock Management Console (ZMC) is called the Dashboard. Providing a wealth of information at a glance, the display is split into five (5) areas:  Banner, List of Homepages, Status, Recent Alerts, and Activity Log.

    Main Screen v2.0


    The ZeroLock banner is the starting point for managing the ZeroLock Management Console (ZMC) itself. From this point on the upper right of the ZMC, you are able to access the current alerts status, edit the contact information of the logged in user, change the password for the user, and setup Multifactor Authentication (MFA) for the user.

    1) Open Alerts 

    Selecting OPEN ALERTS takes you to the ALERTS section.  The three (3) tabs to the right represent the counters for the severity types of alerts – High, Medium, and Low. Selecting any of these will also take you to the ALERTS section.

    2) User Profile

    To the right of the counters is the Profile button. The initial on the button represents the logged in user who, in this case, is the Default Tenant ‘superuser’. On selecting the button, a drop-down screen appears with the User name and Manage Account.  The user name is static, but Manage Account is interactive.

    3) Logout

    This will log you out of the ZeroLock Management Console.

    List of Homepages

    On the left side of the screen there is a list that links to the corresponding homepage and, like the ZeroLock banner, is visible on the left side of the screen regardless of the section you are in.  The section you are currently in will appear as blue on this list.

    White arrows indicate that there are subsections within a homepage. For example, selecting Manage Users opens a drop-down list showing the subsections Users, User Roles, and Tenants.  Selecting one of these will take you to that subsection.

    Each of the homepages has its own Knowledge Base article(s) which may be found on the ValiCyber support page



    The Status section consists of twelve (12) tiles that provide a snapshot of the current state of each monitored section of ZeroLock protected systems (Endpoints).  

    The tiles are divided as follows:

    One (1) tile for the total number of alerts to date. 

    Four (4) tiles dedicated to specific malicious activity ZeroLock is protecting the endpoints from.

    • Ransomware
    • Cryptojacking
    • Tampering
    • Blocked

    Three (3) tiles representing the protection alerts generated for:

    • Program Execution
    • Network Access
    • File Access

    Four (4) tiles depicting the following information:

    • The total number of alerts generated by each endpoint.
    • A visual of the connections status of the endpoints.
    • SSH MFA logins for both successful and failed attempts.
    • The number of alerts generated each day over the last 7 days.


    An alert is generated when ZeroLock detects system behavior that meets criteria set forth by previously configured Control Policies and Rules.
