Release Notes May 2023
Release Date: 2023-05-23
Upcoming update for Netsec Users
It has likely not escaped anyone's notice that things have been a little quiet on the Netsec side. But we have been working exceptionally hard behind the scenes to introduce the Netsec capabilities into the Portal, the UI currently used for our Appsec products.
Over the coming months more capabilities will be added and we are beginning the on-boarding process for customers to move over to the Portal UI. The transition will be gradual, and customers will be moved individually when all of the capabilities they require have been implemented to the Portal UI.
We are also making the whole Vulnerability Management process more streamlined with less 'clicks' required. There will be some changes in terminology and workflow, but its far simpler to manage and a greatly improved user experience. New features are introduced along the way, such as Tags, along with the necessary Tag Manager, support for Webhooks, and much more.
As our business grows, and with more customers joining us, it has been necessary to grow our infrastructure accordingly to ensure we can continue to offer an ever-improving level of service to our customers.
To meet these needs, it has been necessary to extend the IP range from which scanning may originate.
The additional IPv6 range from which scans may originate is:
This is in addition to our existing network range of:
These IP ranges are exclusive to Outpost24, and any IPS whitelisting for PCI ASV scans should include these new ranges.

In our ongoing efforts to ensure a unified experience across all our products, the Web Applications dashboard has been renamed to Asset groups. Despite the name change, the functionalities of this section remain unchanged
- New action in Scans: "View related findings". When applying the action, users are redirected to a pre-filtered list with the findings present at the time of the scan.
- We are excited to announce the reintroduction of the context menu for tables! This feature brings back the convenience and efficiency of accessing key table-related actions with just a right-click:
