Saner 4.1 unveils feature-packed release for Patch Management and encompasses performance optimization in all the tools. It offers patch rollback mechanisms for various Linux and Mac operating systems and supports remediation for non-security patches too.
Following are the highlights of Saner 4.1 Release:
- Patch Management Automation now supports security and non-security patches. A software patch can fix security vulnerabilities or improve the usability and performance. While creating an automation task, users can select from two options, either apply security patches only or apply both security and non-security patches.
- Patch Rollback is now available for Linux and Mac operating systems. Saner tracks rollback point for a software asset while applying a patch. This helps revert changes and restores applications or operating systems to the last best-known version/configuration.
- Saner users can prioritize patches based on severity. Patches are categorized as Critical, High, Medium and Low. A typical use-case would be to allow remediation tasks to qualify only critical patches for Software applications on various devices.
- All scans now run in “Low” mode by default. This would ensure Saner agents consume minimal resources while a scan is run. A CPU threshold value can also be set to restrict resource utilization. This configuration can be altered using Settings.
- Simplified Group and Device filtering.
- Revamped patch automation and Remediation Status interface for better usability, with the ability to filter by Group/Devices and also by the family of Operating System.
- Saner agents can now recover themselves in case of an abnormal shutdown of a system.
- Other bugs and usability concerns are addressed.
