Release Notes November 2020

Release Date: 2020-12-08

Version: G.4.22-11.0

Advanced Notice on SWAT

In the coming months, we are migrating the currently separate SWAT functionality of the Portal fully into the portal. Once this change is complete customers will be able to benefit from the capabilities and functionality of the portal - such as role based access control and being able to clearly identify which applications are using what type of license (SWAT, Snapshot, Assure). When we are ready to announce the release, we will provide a comprehensive overview of the functionality. If you want to be kept informed and provided with more details ahead of the release, contact Support or your Account Manager. 

Advanced Notice on Reporting findings (expected January 2021)

As we continually improve our scan engine and the ways we report findings, we also collaborate with customers who provide valuable feedback on how we report certain findings to ensure that we can provide the best possible information, tied to the highest accuracy we can achieve. We also want to ensure we remove all possible confusion from findings and how we find them.

Based on feedback from a large number of customers, we are breaking out the Gathered Information for some findings when scanning with multiple Virtual Hosts.

In scans running with the Normal or Normal with Webapp policy (or derived from these):

Netsec Findings

Report one finding per port with all vhosts listed in the vhosts column.

One findings for each vhost and port combination.

Webapp Findings

One finding per vhost and all ports (Port listed as Generic).

One findings for each vhost and port combination.

This may therefore result in an increase in findings during a scan as we are reporting separately for each individual vhost. If an affected finding has previously been marked as an 'Accepted Risk', there will instead be separate findings for each of the included vhost and port combinations, allowing much greater granularity in risk evaluation and remediation.

New Features


  • Added graph for likelihood ranges in the Portal Dashboard
  • Added filter on business criticality of targets


Cloudsec Inspect container inspection (beta) now support Azure Container Registries and Google Container Registries.

Bug Fixes and Minor Improvements


  • Improved the ability to detect 3rd party components and associated vulnerabilities in the SWAT automated scan engine. This will potentially cause a SWAT customer to see an increase in findings based on this improved detection methodology. As always with the SWAT service, findings will only be released to the Portal once they have been assessed for false positives.
