What's New:

Outpost24 Farsight

With the winter release we see the launch of Outpost24 Farsight, a next generation vulnerability risk management solution powered by Cyr3con threat intelligence. Using machine learning, you will be able to know of the important vulnerabilities before they start being actively exploited, thus giving your team the ability to anticipate forthcoming risks for your business. Farsight is unique as it analyzes and predicts the likelihood of a vulnerability being weaponized and exploited over time, delivering easy to understand and evidence-based risk ratings for organizations to prioritize network vulnerabilities beyond CVSS.

This release marks our entry into the field of VPT and will evolve over the coming months. For more information and to see Farsight in action, please contact your Outpost24 Account Manager or our Customer Support Team on the Knowledge Base.

Application security solution

  • Role Based Access Control (RBAC) support for Scale

Role Based Access Control (RBAC) Support for Scale

Role Based Access Control (RBAC) for Scale will improve user access controls for dynamic application security testing. Using a mix of predefined or custom roles, and resource groups created by using the ability to tag assets, configurations and test credentials, customers are now able to restrict user accounts to only those resources and functions those individuals are permitted to access.

For more information, refer to the How to guides in the Knowledge Base.

Selenium Support Moved From Beta to GA

We're moving our Selenium support from Beta to GA and as such all customers will have Selenium enabled on their accounts. Selenium is now presented as a new authentication option in the Configurations tab.
