The Mimecast Web Security dashboard offers built-in reporting for administrators, including visualizations of the top ten most accessed domains, accessed site categories, blocked domains, and blocked by site categories. It also displays summary data which is rolled up and processed every 30 minutes. It doesn't show real-time data.
