Release Notes July 2021

Release Date: 2021-07-29

Version: 4.29-16.0.el7

Important Notice for all HIAB Customers

Last year we changed the way we handle encryption of HIAB backups to increase security, speed and reliability. This has been implemented for encryption and decryption of current backups, however we have kept the legacy decryption function to support older backups.

HIAB Backups will have been using the new method since January 2021. If you have not performed a HIAB backup since January 2021, you should perform a backup to ensure that it can still be decrypted successfully if needed.

The legacy method of decryption will be removed in September 2021. If there is a potential issue with this, please contact Outpost24 Support.

New Features


  • In addition to our normal 'Likelihood' risk rating (1 - 38.46) we have now added an alternative risk score - Farsight Risk that provides the customer with a 1-100 risk rating.  Where 1 is no risk and 100 is highest risk applicable to that vulnerability.  This new risk scoring will be available both in the OUTSCAN platform as well as the Portal UI.  Customers are free to use which ever scoring they feel appropriate for their needs but are encouraged not to mix and match.
  • Added Farsight Delta to show the most recent deviation in the Farsight Risk score.
  • Customers will now require the relevant license to enable Farsight for Container Inspection or Appsec Scale.  If you want to enable this, please contact your respective Account Manager for pricing information.


  • We are pleased to make container inspection generally available for all customers with a Cloudsec license.
