Beta version of Policy Manager and Client Security version 12.10 released

I'm happy to announce that the new Beta version of F-Secure Client Security & Policy Manager is available for your review.

 

Major changes since the previous release include:

 

Client Security

 

Remote collection of diagnostics reports

  • It is now possible for the Policy Manager administrator to remotely collect diagnostics reports (FSDiag) from problematic hosts. The newly introduced F-Secure Support Tool operation is available on the Operations tab in Policy Manager Console. At the moment, Client Security 12.10 Beta is the only product that supports this operation.

 

Botnet Blocker

  • This feature gives the Policy Manager administrator the ability to block Domain Name System (DNS) queries from the host for domains that have a malicious reputation. The configuration options for queries are "Allow all", "Block unsafe and suspicious", and "Allow safe only".

 

 

Policy Manager

 

Active Directory integration improvements

  • Policy Manager can now automatically synchronize with Active Directory, discovering changes in the Active Directory tree structure and finding unmanaged hosts. Two types of Active Directory rules are introduced: Synchronization and Notification rules. Both are created and configured on the new Active Directory tab.

 

Remote collection of diagnostics reports

  • It is now possible for the Policy Manager administrator to remotely collect diagnostics reports (aka FSDiag) from problematic hosts. The newly introduced F-Secure Support Tool operation is available on the Operations tab in Policy Manager Console. At the moment, Client Security 12.10 Beta is the only product that supports this operation.

 

Updated Graphical User Interface

  • Look and feel update for the user interface including graphics, colors and fonts.

 

Minor changes and improvements

  • Handling of download policy file requests is optimized to increase the server's ability to process other requests while polices are downloaded by managed endpoints.

                User's system locale is used by Policy Manager Console to represent date and time.

                Resolved the issue with Web Reporting alerting reports not showing alert details.

 

New features not included in this beta version:

 

WMI integration

HTTPS support in communications between Client Security and Policy Manager

Offload Scanning Agent (OSA) improvements for clustering support in SVCE

 

Key codes:

    60 days Beta evaluation key is built in the package. It is possible to use CS 12.00 keys for this Beta release as well.

 

We look forward to hearing your comments and feedback on the product functionality, usability and performance.

 

Please contact your F-Secure reseller to provide this beta release to you.

 



Best Regards

-Ben

Re: Beta version of Policy Manager and Client Security version 12.10 released

Dear Ben,

 

Will it be possible to place FSPM 12.10 central management and FSAV (E)SS 11.01 antivirus on the same server computer?

 

I mean there is a large age difference btween the two products. If the (E)SS is installed first, it won't be centrally managed. if the FSPM is installed first and (E)SS11 second, the installer of that 2 year old product could possibly wreck some F-Secure components like AUA/AUS, since it cannot have knowledge of the much newer PM 12.10 software?

 

I think this is an important issue, since there is no new major version of the Windows Server / Exchange protection suite in sight.

 

Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely: Tamas Feher, Hungary.
