Latest (v7)

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

September 2023 - Console: V7.01.001, Agent: V7.01.001

In this release:
  • 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.
Select the problem files you want to rescan
  • 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
      • Console Health Check
        • If the Console is found to be unhealthy we will send a notification when the CloudWatch Alarm Status changes

  • 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
    Two conflicted buckets, one protected using Event Bridge
    • 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
Event Bridge enabled for all bucket in Scan Settings
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.
