# What it is What it does
1 Dashboards Dashboards allow you to manage and monitor efficiently and in a visual way security in an Active Directory infrastructure.
2 Identity Explorer Tenable Identity Exposure's Identity Explorer view unifies identities across both Active Directory and Microsoft Entra ID. This view shows the Identity Risk Score (beta) for each listed asset and the potential reach of compromised identities.
3 Trail Flow The Trail Flow shows the real-time monitoring and analysis of events affecting your Active Directory.
4 Indicators of Exposure Tenable Identity Exposure uses Indicators of Exposure (IoEs) to measure the security maturity of your Active Directory and assign severity levels (Critical, High, Medium, or Low) to the flow of events that it monitors and analyzes.
5 Indicators of Attack Through Indicators of Attack, Tenable Identity Exposure can detect attacks in real time.
6 Topology The Topology page gives an interactive graph visualization of your Active Directory. It shows the forests, domains, and trust relationships that exist between them.
7 Attack Path

The Attack Path pages give graphical representations of Active Directory relationships:

  • Blast Radius: Evaluates lateral movements in the AD from a potentially compromised asset.

  • Attack Path: Anticipates privilege escalation techniques to reach an asset from a specific entry point.

  • Asset Exposure: Measures an asset's vulnerability using asset exposure visualization and tackles all escalation paths.
