Desktop Analytics is in Early Access and available to specific customers. To learn more, contact your Customer Success Manager.
Use the Desktop Analytics dashboard to quickly see how up to date your organization's web browsers are, compared to the most recent, stable version.
Outdated browsers introduce risk of attacks, such as cross-site scripting (XSS), in which a threat actor can use a web application to send malicious code, generally in the form of a browser-side script, to a site visitor with a vulnerable browser. With this code, the threat actor can compromise the visitor's device and network in different ways. The older the browser. the greater the risk.
Note: In this initial release, we provide one data visualization for Chrome browsers. In future releases, we will provide more types of visualizations, support other browsers, and address other desktop components, such as operating systems.
View the dashboard
In your Scorecard, select Desktop Analytics in the left navigation panel.
The Browser age chart shows how current your organization's browsers are relative to the current, stable version over a three-month period. Each version is represented by an integer.
With every new release, we mark the latest browser version 0 and add 1 to each earlier version. So, with each release, the previously current version (0) becomes 1, the version before that becomes 2, and so on.
