Endpoint Security / SandBlast Agent Newsletter - Version – E81.00

Hi all,

We recently released SandBlast Agent E81.00

Complete list of improvements can be found on the release Secure Knowledge Enterprise Endpoint Security E81.00 Windows Clients sk153053

BlueKeep (CVE-2019-0708)

Microsoft has announced that a critical vulnerability was found in Remote Desktop Services (RDS) relevant to several Windows products, including Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

SandBlast Agent support mitigation for BlueKeep vulnerability in the following releases:

As always, we highly recommend installing the relevant Microsoft security patch.

Forensic with GEO Location

One of the new enhancements in E81.00 is the GEO location of malicious connections, for example the malware bot communications with its C&C location  

Improved end-user experience

Per feedback from our field and customers, we reduced the number of end-user popups and notifications starting E80.96. By default we no longer present notification which doesn’t require user action or immediately impact the user work. The motivation is to provide smoother experience to the end-user.

More information can be found in the Ability to enable/disable user popups in Endpoint Security Client SK152613

 

Early Availability in E81.00

BitLocker is a very popular full volume encryption feature included with Microsoft Windows versions. Due to its popularity we have integrated the management of BitLocker into SmartEndpoint to ease its operation to our customers

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) Persistent Support for VMware Horizon

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is virtualization technology that hosts a desktop operating system on a centralized server. With persistent VDI each desktop runs from a separate disk image. The user's settings are saved and appear each time at login and allows more personalization experience.

E81.00 add EA support for VDI persistent mode. Support for VDI non-persistent mode is also in development. We will update when it became available.
