Release Notes October 2020

Release Date: 2020-10-29

Version: G.4.21-4.0

Advanced Notice

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. 

New Features 

[Beta] Data Sovereign (DS) Agents

With the recent change in working practices with less people situated in an office, there has been a need to ensure that our customers can still get the security information about their endpoints. We earlier released the Outpost24 Agent, and are now happy to announce the Beta of our Data Sovereign Agent.

What is a DS Agent?

The standard Agent reports its information back to Outscan, so no matter where in the world that endpoint is located, if it has an Internet connection, you can be assured of its ability to report back its vulnerability information. Unfortunately, for some customers they have regulatory requirements where all data must stay within the confines of their environment. The DS Agent solves this by ensuring that the Agent communicates back to an Endpoint in the customers infrastructure.

Does a DS Agent just sent data back to a HIAB?

To support the DS Agent, some additional infrastructure is needed, specifically a server to run the Agent API server(s) and access to Object Storage to store the resulting Data. The Scheduling and reporting is, however, still maintained through the HIAB.

Where can I find more information?

If the DS Agent is of interest, please contact you local sales representative who will be able to arrange a call with one of our Sales Engineers to discuss the requirements in more detail.
