New Features

    • The asset database can now be backed up and exported/imported from one Threat Defender to another.

Improvements

  • The reporting dashboards and the threat intelligence log have been further improved to increase clarity and visibility.

Fixed Issues

  • The asset settings screen is no longer reloaded during editing.¬†
  • The threat intelligence incident logs can now be filtered by clicking a section in the chart in addition to entering a value into the filter field.

Known Issues

While the automatic asset discovery function is enabled, Threat Defender automatically relearns any previously deleted assets.
