New Features

Data Sovereign (DS) Agents (Beta)

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 (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.

If the DS Agent is of interest to your organization, please contact your Outpost24 sales representative who will be able to arrange a call with one of our Sales Engineers to discuss the requirements in more detail.

Please note, 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 are, however, still maintained through the HIAB

  • Fixed an issue that allowed customers in some scenarios, to scan more applications than their maximum license count when using Appsec Scale. Any customer who exceeded their license count will not be able to scan new unique applications until their total number of scanned applications is reduced to below the license count. However, customers who have been scanning more unique applications than their license would otherwise be permitted to continue to scan those applications for the next ninety (90) days after the application license count will be fully enforced preventing any overage from being scanned. We recommend customers check their license usage in the Portal, and should they discover they have been scanning more assets than licenses we recommend they contact their Outpost24 sales representative to discuss the matter
