One component in the Rapid Detection and Response ecosystem is the client installed on Windows endpoints. We have had a standalone version available, and are preparing to make available combination clients with Protection Service for Business (PSB) Computer Protection clients.
In this thread, we will announce new releases and you can expect to see new ones frequently. Our clients are updated to the latest version automatically even though not immediately - new installations may see newer version for a period of time than what you have installed.

What is new with 19.2 standalone?
What is new with the 19.2 combination products?
NOTE: For this release you will see a need of reboot in a special case. If at time of installing there is an application running that uses .NET that we are upgrading to version 4.7.2, a reboot is needed. This reboot is not asked visibly, but only through the downloads list with the PSB module status "Reboot needed". The version 19.1 will continue to be fully operational while the reboot is pending.
Also, a fraction percentage of our installed base will see PSB module status "Will try again". This means that something blocked us from upgrading .NET to version 4.7.2, usually the reason being that the computer is running an older version of e.g. Windows 10 where Microsoft is not supporting this version. In this case, check that .NET 4.7.2 is supported on the Windows version the computer is running and if the status remains, please reach out to us. Also in this case, the version 19.1 will continue to be fully operational.
