This release features an improved Web server, faster loading times for assets tables, and role-based documentation.


Improved Web server

  • Modifications to the Web server improve the overall performance of the console and reduce download sizes for Web content. These enhancements provide users with smoother, faster access to features and reports available via the Web interface.


Enhanced access to asset data

  • Performance improvements to the Web interface allow you to evaluate your risk posture, address vulnerabilities, and secure your environment faster:
    o Better scan data integration gives you faster access to scan results.
    o Changes to how the product manages assets tables containing a large number of records enables faster asset table loading times. This allows the console to display asset information more quickly.
    o A control button for exporting asset data in comma-separated value (CSV) file format is now available in all supported browsers. You can view CSV files in a spreadsheet or text editing program.


Modified scan data sorting

  • Modifications to the Web interface have corrected a data sorting bug. This fix ensures that you are able to correctly sort data in the following areas:
    o the column indicating elapsed time on scan progress pages
    o the Scan Status column on the Home page


More customized documentation

  • In response to the changing needs of our users, we are now providing documents designed to meet the needs for specific user roles. This includes documentation customized for administrators and security analysts, making it easier for these audiences to find information most relevant to their business responsibilities. API documentation has now also been enhanced to include specific use cases, making it easier for users to find guidance that will allow them to better integrate product features with other business tools. You can download all documentation from the Support page in Help.
