[New] Validation scanning

We’re excited to announce that you can now save even more time with validation scanning for Remediation Projects in InsightVM. This capability is available to InsightVM subscribers who take advantage of Scan Engine Management on the Insight cloud platform. With validation scanning, you can immediately verify that your applied remediation solutions have taken effect with on-demand scanning, instead of waiting for your next scheduled scan or Insight Agent assessment. This translates to a simplified scanning process and faster results.

[New] CloudTrail support for Cloud Configuration Assessment

You can now configure supplementary CloudTrail connections to work alongside your AWS connections in Cloud Configuration Assessment. Connecting to the CloudTrail service allows InsightVM to respond dynamically to configuration changes among your AWS resources to promote more real-time assessment results. Check out the updated AWS connection configuration documentation to learn how to configure a CloudTrail connection.

[New] RECON dashboard template

We added a new pre-built dashboard template that helps you monitor how CVE-2020-6287 (also known as RECON) is impacting your environment. Navigate to the Dashboard tab in InsightVM and select the RECON Dashboard for SAP NetWeaver template from the dashboard dropdown to get a tailored view of your latest scan results as they become available.

[New] Turn dashboards into shared insights

Create an ad hoc export of the dashboard to a PDF file, making it easier to share information with your stakeholders—both peers and leadership. This helps foster collaboration and ensures all teams have visibility into the same data.

[Updated] Expanding user permissions for remediation efforts

We’ve expanded user permissions in InsightVM to facilitate better collaboration: Site owners and remediation teams can now create and manage their own static Remediation Projects. Enabling teams to self-serve eliminates the burden for InsightVM admins to manage every card and dashboard in InsightVM that’s needed by site owners.

There you have it! On behalf of the team, thank you for your continued loyalty, and we hope you are gearing up for an exciting close to this year.
