Panther Audit Logs (Beta)

Panther audit logs provide a read-only history of activity within your Panther deployment. You can write detections or query your data lake for audit logs the same way you would with any other security events ingested by Panther. For more information, see Panther Audit Logs (Beta).

System Health Notifications

Panther's System Health Notifications alert you with a "System Error" when a part of the Panther platform is not functioning correctly. This includes the following types of notifications:
