The Explore dashboard enables you to compare your response times, submissions, and spend data to those of other programs. This enables you to take a deep dive into your data to see what areas you need to focus on to improve your program. You can also create benchmarks and specify the kinds of programs you want to compare your program to based on program type, industry, and company headcount.
To access your response targets dashboard:
Go to Program Dashboard > Explore.
Select the appropriate variables for these fields:
What you want to measure.
The rating of how severe a vulnerability is.
The date you want to start measuring from.
The date you want to stop measuring from.
How you want to view your data.
The time between each data point.
You can filter your metrics by:
Only available for Enterprise programs
Once you’ve specified how you’d like to view your data, you’ll be able to drill down into your data to see how your program has been performing. You’ll get a holistic view of what is and isn’t going well, and be able to discern what areas need improvement.
You can also see the list of reports that apply to the metric you’re viewing.
Here are some example use cases as to why you might want to use Explore.
Use Case 1: Analyze your data
You want to understand how well your team is doing in terms of resolution speed so that you can patch vulnerabilities as quickly as possible, but you don’t have a clear understanding of how your program has been doing over time or what could improve.
Using Explore, you can view key metrics such as Response times, Submissions, and Spend. From the metrics, you can drill down into specific data spikes and compare yourself to previous time periods.
Use Case 2: Compare yourself to other programs
You want to understand how well your company is doing in terms of response speed, but you don’t have a clear understanding of what’s considered a “good” speed. Looking at internal data isn’t enough because you have no idea if the company’s security team is doing well compared to the industry at large.
By choosing Benchmarks in Explore, you can gain insights into your program performance against aggregated market data against other companies based on program type, industry, and company headcount.
