New Features

  • The asset tracking¬†of Threat Defender was enhanced:

    • Automatic detection of network assets can now be toggled on and off.
    • The asset database can now be backed up and exported/imported from one Threat Defender to another.


  • The IPS engine was improved. It is now better integrated into the threat intelligence subsystem and its performance has increased. Several bugs were also fixed.
  • 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
