Corporate Software Inspector 2016 R10 (On-Premises Edition)
Flexera’s Corporate Software Inspector is a Vulnerability and Patch Management Software Solution that completes and targets the Patch Management process. It combines Vulnerability Intelligence, Vulnerability Scanning, and Patch Creation with Patch Deployment Tool Integration to enable targeted, reliable, and cost-efficient Patch Management.
Vulnerability and Patch Management are critical components of any security infrastructure because it enables proactive detection and remediation of vulnerabilities before they are actively exploited and your security compromised. With Corporate Software Inspector, IT Operations and Security Teams are empowered to take control of the Vulnerability Threat from both Microsoft and non-Microsoft (third-party) product vulnerabilities, covering Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Corporate Software Inspector scanning technology takes a different approach than other vulnerability scanning solutions by conducting non-intrusive scans to accurately identify all installed products and plugins on the system.
Corporate Software Inspector integrates seamlessly with Microsoft® WSUS and System Center Configuration Manager.
New Features and Enhancements
Corporate Software Inspector 2016 R10 (On-Premises Edition) includes the following new features and enhancements:
|•||New Operating System criteria for Product Smart Groups|
|•||Corporate Software Inspector Agent upgraded to Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2|
|•||Corporate Software Inspector Agent can accept token and site details via command line|
|•||Removed zero count installations path from Flexera’s Software Package System (SPS) wizard|
Note • To see the following new features and enhancements in your Corporate Software Inspector interface, you must refresh the cache in your browser. You can use the shortcut key CTRL+R.
Operating System criteria has been added as a new filter for Product Smart Groups (CSIL-6870).
To implement a more secure communication protocol, the Corporate Software Inspector Agent now only supports TLS 1.2. Corporate Software Inspector no longer supports TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 (CSIL-8399).
Agents for the server edition now support passing the agent token and other relevant details via command line or registry. When agents are downloaded from the UI, token, userid, and server details are embedded into the agent executable. This process creates an issue when trying to deploy agents across very large enterprises when hosts are spread across multiple partitions. To resolve this issue, a copy of the agent from the web server can be deployed, and configuration details can be kept in a Windows registry or specified as a command line parameter to the agent. The agent configuration parameters can be obtained via email from the agent download page in the website (CSIL-8405).
In Step 3 of the SPS installation, paths with zero counts are included by default. These paths represent scan data from hosts that are no longer active. Going forward, such zero count paths will not be included. Users will have to explicitly include them in the package (CSIL-8420).
Corporate Software Inspector 2016 R10 (On-Premises Edition) has resolved the following issues:
|•||Upgrade RPM package in Linux to enable Zero Day Vulnerability module|
|•||Network appliance agent can be removed from the Corporate Software Inspector console.|
|•||Software configuration enhancements|
|•||Agent uninstalls older versions of agent when installed as a service|
Older versions, when upgraded to the latest rpm build, were not including the Zero Day Vulnerability module. This issue has been fixed. After upgrading the RPM package, the Zero Day Advisories listing should appear under Results (CSIL-8017).
New installations of CSI will configure website to use TLS 1.2 protocol for SSL connections. TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are considered insecure by the industry, so they will be disabled by default. The Following settings have been added to /etc/httpd/conf.d/secunia-csi-httpd.conf file (CSIL-8342).
“SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3 -TLSv1 -TLSv1.1”
"SSLCipherSuite EECDH+AESGCM:EDH+AESGCM:AES256+EECDH:AES256+EDH:!aNULL:!MD5:!RC4:!DES "
When installed as a service, older versions of the agent were not uninstalled. This issue has been fixed (CSIL-8447).
