Latest (v7)

We will cover a running list of new features and releases with the latest always placed at the top.

**IMPORTANT**

Please upgrade your Linked Account Roles to v1.12 or later BEFORE upgrading your console/agent to v7.

If you do not upgrade your Linked Account Roles then you could experience problems when using EventBridge. Click here to learn more about Linked Account Updates.

Please also note, you'll also need to upgrade your console/agent to the latest current version you're currently on before you can upgrade to the next major version.

For example, if you are on v5, you'll need to upgrade to the latest version of v5, then upgrade to the latest of v6, then finally upgrade to v7.

If you are deployed using public subnets then you are most likely using our cloudstoragesecapp.com subdomain to connect to your Management Console. The SSL Certificate associated with that domain name was renewed as of v7.08.000. Please upgrade to this console version or later to avoid any SSL browser errors.

June 2024 - Console: V7.09.000, Agent: V7.09.000

In this release:

Private Deployment CloudFormation Template

  • If you need a way to deploy privately but aren't sure which subnets to use from your current VPCs, you can use our private deployment CFT to create a new VPC with all of the resources (subnets, VPC endpoints, etc.) needed to deploy your Management Console and scanning agents in a fully private environment

Ability to disable classification through the Management Console

  • You can now disable Data Classification through the License Management page of your Management Console

CXMail findings are now marked as suspicious instead of infected

  • The Sophos scanning engine has a CXMail identity that is specific to files sent over email channels. This finding while useful, does not fully apply to cloud storage mediums. Because of this, we are re-categorizing all findings under the CXMail identity to be found as suspicious. If you come across a CXMail finding we recommend you run a static or dynamic analysis to see if the file is legitimately malicious

  • Our CloudFormation Template now allows specifying the existing target group ARN. If the ARN value is specified, the CFT will register the ECS Console Service with that Target Group instead of creating a new LB.

v7.06.000 CloudFormation Template

v7.06.000 CFT

January 2024 - Console: V7.05.000, Agent: V7.05.000

In this release:

Classify pre-existing objects in S3 buckets

We've added the ability to scan pre-existing objects stored in S3 buckets against user-selected classification rule sets by selecting Scan Existing - DC through the Actions menu on the Bucket Protection page.

Advanced Scan Setting: Files to process in parallel

This setting controls how many files are scanned at the same time by your scanning agent(s), when using Sophos or CrowdStrike. It is designed to be used in scenarios where small, compressed files are unexpectedly triggering Large File Scans.

We recommend that you do not modify this setting, and use the default value. It should only be changed in the scenario where you are scanning small, compressed files resulting in unnecessary Large File Scans being initiated.

Various Bug Fixes:

  • Improvements to Unhealthy Event Agent SNS Topic Proactive Monitor

  • Eliminated false-positives when detecting unhealthy Event Agent topics, and improved the message body when delivering notifications

  • EBS and EFS Scheduled Scanning

    • We now support schedule-based virus scanning and data classification for EBS volumes and EFS volumes

    • EBS Virus Scanning and Classification supports Linux and Windows (FAT4, XFS, NTFS, exFAT. FileSystems)

    • You can now have a schedule that scans and classifies a mixture of S3 buckets, EBS and EFS volumes

Please note that you must first stage a region to run a scan on any EBS volume within that region, if you have not already deployed a scanner within that region.

This will be corrected in a patch, afterwhich you will be prompted to configure the region when activating your schedule.

  • Problem Files Rescan Functionality

    • You now have the ability to rescan any problem files that are found to be infected, unscannable, suspicious, or have an error.

    • If a file is found to be unscannable or produces an error upon being scanned, we will not charge you for the data that scan used. Once you rescan, if the file is scanned successfully and is found to be clean, infected, or suspicious the scan will count towards your scanning data.

  • Proactive Monitoring

    • This is the first version of our Proactive Monitoring functionality. This will be part of a larger release where we will implement modules to monitor certain parts of your deployment

    • Your Console and Agent will detect issues and create CloudWatch alarms to notify you of a broken deployment. This iteration monitors the following:

      • Event Agent SNS Topic or Access Policy doesn't exist

        • Re-create SNS topic and automatically fix Access Policy

      • Invalid ECS Task Running

        • Performs an analysis on resources to determine if the Task is running when it should not.

          Unhealthy status means:

          • ScanQueue job status is not running

          • SQS Queue is missing

        • A notification email will be sent informing you of an unhealthy region

In this release:

  • Secure Your Managed File Transfer: Cloud Storage Security + AWS Transfer Family

    • Ensure the data that is moved into Amazon S3 via AWS Transfer Family is free of ransomware, viruses, trojans and other payloads by scanning it inline with Antivirus for Amazon S3

    • Integrated AWS Partner Solution created for simple, single-click install of both solutions. Be up and running with both solutions in under 15 minutes

    • Check out the Integrations page for more details

  • Event Bridge Support in Console

    • In November of 2022 we released Event Bridge support through our management API. As of v7.00.000, you can now protect your buckets with Event Bridge or with S3 Event Notifications protection through the Console and if there is a conflict we will best match protection method to resolve the conflict

    • For example, if you select multiple buckets to protect with event-based. scanning and some of them contain conflicts we will protect the conflict buckets with Event Bridge (after you acknowledge this in the popup modal) and the rest will be protected with S3 Event Notifications. If you decline in the modal we will not protect those conflicted buckets.

    • If Protect with Event Bridge is enabled globally from Scan Settings then we will protect all selected buckets with Event Bridge without acknowledgment.

    • Learn more on the Bucket Protection and Scan Settings pages on how Event Bridge helps to resolve event-based scanning on conflicted buckets

Protecting buckets with Event Bridge will incur additional AWS charges. If enabled globally, we will not go back to currently protected buckets and switch their current protection method.

  • API Scanning Agent

    • Updated Load Balancer SSL certificate from TLS 1.2 to 1.3

    • Additional engine choices for scanning now include CrowdStrike and ClamAV

Multi-engine API scanning will be coming in a future release.

Please note, that if the application you have integrated API scanning into only supports TLS 1.2 you will need to upgrade it to support TLS 1.3. Otherwise your application will not be able to successfully communicate with our API Scanning Agent.
