What’s New in Axonius 2.9

Posted by Sly Gittens
on September 5, 2019

Today, we released Axonius version 2.9 to customers. Let’s take a look at what’s new.

1. New Adapters

We currently have integrations with 147 security and management solutions that know about assets, and we’re always adding more. The following new adapters are now available in Axonius:

  1. Automox – a cloud-based patch and configuration management solution for Windows, Linux, Mac, and third-party software.
  2. Indegy Industrial Cybersecurity Suite – protects industrial networks from cyber threats, malicious insiders, and human error, including threat detection and mitigation, asset tracking, vulnerability management, configuration control, and device integrity checks.
  3. F5 BIG-IP iControl – a web services-enabled open API providing granular control over the configuration and management of F5’s application delivery platform, BIG-IP.
  4. IBM MaaS360 – a Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) platform covering endpoints, end-users, apps, content, mobile devices, and data.
  5. Kaspersky Security Center – an administration console for Kaspersky Labs security solutions and systems management tools.
  6. Signal Sciences – a web protection platform that protects on-premise, multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud apps, within containers and serverless functions.
  7. Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.x – manages events, policies, and registration for the client computers that connect to customer networks.
  8. VMware vCloud Director – a cloud service-delivery platform to operate and manage cloud-service businesses.

2. Making Axonius Easier to Use

We love hearing from customers, especially when they have ideas that can make using the product better, easier, and more efficient. A few examples:

Agent Versions

Querying Agent Versions – You can now build a query with the new “Agent Versions” option in the General Data tab. In addition to searching for devices missing an agent, you can build a query that searches for devices with an outdated agent version.

Viewing Agent Versions – Agent versions table has been added to the general data table, that data can be queried. Each item in that table is an object, and each column is a column that can be displayed and queried. The information for each agent is split into name, version, and status columns. A status of Not Provided is shown when no status has been provided.

Adapter UX Enhancements

  1. We have added a new toggle called Configured Only: If enabled, the adapters page will only show adapters that have servers configured.
  2. There is now a number to the left of each adapter displaying the number of configured servers that have no connection issues with a green circle above it.
  3. Additionally, there is now a number to the left of each adapter displaying the number of configured servers that have connection issues with a red triangle above it.

3. Making Data More Usable

At its core, Axonius is meant to aggregate information from many different sources, correlate it, and show how every asset relates to security policies.

In the 2.9 release, we’ve made the following enhancements to make data from Axonius more useful:

  1. Field Segmentation – Customers will notice that we have added the ability to page through all of the results for Device Discovery, User Discovery, and custom panels of this type.
  2. Device and User Table Updates – Customers can now show specific values in the selected fields, and Multi-field columns can now be added to the columns shown in a table and filtered to show complex data in a single field.

4. Adding More Enforcement Actions

We’re constantly looking for ways to help customers automate repetitive work to bring devices and users back into compliance with their security policies. Below are the new Enforcement Actions added to this release.

Enrich Device Data with Portnox – This new action will enrich devices returned from a query with additional data from Portnox.

Create BMC Helix Remedy Ticket – This new action will create a ticket in BMC Helix Remedy for device or user objects returned from a query. 

Add Custom Data  – This new action allows you to add a single custom string field to each user or device returned from a query that can be used in future queries.
