New Features

  • New BETA feature: Google Cloud API scan support via the integrations and scan jobs screens.


  • More data, no problem: Automate migration is improved to be more reliable and stable for systems with a large amount of data.
  • Migration Guard: Automate migration is protected from starting if the data is considered possibly corrupted or malformed.
  • Updated Reporting: Compliance reporting is now rejecting reports with no node_uuid defined.

Bug Fixes

  • Daylight Savings Adjustment: Fixes excess/deficient number of buckets in the Event Feed Guitar Strings control for the weeks that include the beginning or end of daylight saving.

  • CIS RHEL5 server compliance profiles fixes:
