Project Description

Digital security dashboard

Task

Redesign the Kasada Polyform product dashboard.

The original dashboard had been designed with a limited scope in mind and after a year of development and features needed a functional update.

The final result had to allow users to view statistics and configure a potentially infinite list of protected assets. Finally, users needed to be able to view incoming threats to their system.

The project was completed after several weeks of iterations and exploring multiple different designs and layouts.
