Release Notes November 2019

Release Date: 2019-11-26

Version: G4.10-1.0

New Features


  • This release introduces unified Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for the Outpost24 platform and HIAB appliances, and are expected to increase the robustness and security of appliance setups.


    Customers who have deployed but not enrolled HIABs prior to this release, must download and deploy a new image provided with this release before enrolling.


With this release, we are pleased to announce:

  • Support for the hardening Google Cloud provider compliance benchmarks. To use and access the results of the hardening GCP compliance policies, you need to run and access these from within the Appsec menu option.
  • Support for the hardening AWS compliance benchmarks in the Appsec UI.


  • As we continue to assess Scout as part of its beta program we have added the ability to rerun previous Scout discoveries. This allows you to schedule discoveries to run at a time suited to your needs, as well as viewing the content and findings from previously discoveries. We will continue to add additional functionalities based on feedback from our beta participants. As a reminder, if you wish to be considered to beta test Scout, please raise a request via the Support team.


  • A new source Cloudsec has been added to the Appsec Assets view, to help with filtering and analyzing assets subject to the GCP or AWS hardening benchmarks.
  • Appsec Scale checkbox has been removed from the User Role Management section. Since the Appsec UI views are available to all customers and users, it has no longer any effect on the access to Appsec Scale.


  • The GCP and AWS functionality in Cloudsec now fully supports the use of the REST API.

End of Life Announcement


We have delayed the deprecation of the SWAT Classic UI indefinitely. We strongly recommend our customers to make use of the APPSEC UI for the majority of their activities as we are no longer actively developing the Swat Classic UI. Once we have a firm deprecation date, we will provide a three month notification of the End of life.
