Enhancements

  1. Complete feature integration of the Saner solution with Mac OS X operating systems. Query, threat detection and incident response capabilities are now available for Mac OS X devices.
  2. File, Device, Process and Network monitors are provided for Mac operating systems.
  3. Refurbished Configuration interface provides better insight and understanding of endpoint compliance rules. Note: Compliance is now referred to as Configuration.
  4. Improved performance and scalability of reports.
  5. New reports provides better visualization on actions taken.
  6. Remediation actions also show patches applied on endpoints.
  7. Enhanced device discovery (using OS fingerprinting techniques) in an on-premise Saner solution setup.
  8. Saner Platform data backup and restore.
  9. Host name alias can be provided for better usability in device management. This alias will be used thereafter in all actions, status and reports.
  10. Search and sort in Command and Control actions such as device, application, services, processes and in Settings and Configuration.
  11. New sample queries introduced for agents running on Windows, Mac and Linux systems support real-time analysis.
  12. New Threat feed checks.
  13. Missing and installed patch information is collected from all endpoints and consolidated with patches applied from remediation actions.
  14. Activation mechanism is enhanced to consider a set of trusted MAC addresses from an endpoint. This ensures that activation does not fail for endpoints that frequently change their network adapters from Wi-Fi to Ethernet or similar.
  15. Administrators can reclaim Saner licenses that can then be reused. Administrators can disable an already activated Saner device which helps recover licenses of active devices which are no longer in use. If unable to reach a device, a substitute option – delete device is available.
