Visualization and Dashboards

Options for visualization and creating dashboards by integrating Panther with existing tools in your environment.
Panther supports quickly integrating data visualization and business intelligence (BI) tools with our security data lake.
In addition to Panther's overview dashboard, support for dashboarding that visualizes data from the data lake directly within the Console is under consideration for future development. Until then, these workflows will help you leverage existing tools in your environment.
Using a BI User provisioned by your customer support team, you have the ability to connect many tools to your Snowflake datalake.
To gain access to the following BI workflows, contact your customer support team to have access provisioned before moving on to next steps.
