RDS-Knight On-line User Guide


Events viewer

RDS-Knight is not a security audit solution. However, we pushed further the security events logs by allowing to trace the last two thousand and five hundred events, which should offer a more relevant alternative to a full audit solution.
The security events are a great source of information as they display the operations performed by RDS-Knight to protect your computer.

The Events Viewer window can be opened from the RDS-Knight main window, by clicking directly on the last 5 events displayed or on the Events tab. The information displayed on the Events Viewer window are refreshed automatically every few seconds.

Note: The RDS-Knight Events Viewer window can be moved around and does not prevent you from using the other RDS-Knight feature.

The five tiles at the top of the window displays a status for each RDS-Knight features.
