Quarantined objects

The third tile shows how many malware/unwanted program findings are currently in quarantine on all of your devices. Click the tile to see the affected devices only.

New push notifications

We’ve added a new setting to your user profile that allows you to enable push notifications. When enabled, your operating system will alert you about critical security events in your workspaces.

New System Security settings & policies

You can now use protection policies to turn the Windows Firewall, the RDP Service and the RDP monitoring on and off for groups of devices. Find the new settings near the bottom of the policies list. Firewall and RDP can either be turned on, off, or left as is it.

How to obtain the new version

As always, so long as you have auto-updates enabled in the software, you will receive the latest version automatically during your regularly scheduled updates, which are hourly by default.

Note to Enterprise users: If you have chosen to receive “Delayed” updates in the Update settings for your clients, they will receive the new software version no earlier than 30 days after the regular “Stable” availability. This gives you time to perform internal compatibility tests before a new version gets rolled out to your clients automatically.

Have a great and well-protected day!
