  • Release Candidate of Comodo Dragon Operation Platform for September 2019-09-07

    We are excited to inform you that we are planning to have new releases scheduled to go live on Saturday (2019-09-07) morning!

    The release is expected to take 30 minutes to deploy, during that time platform will be under maintenance mode. Post-deployment tests are expected to continue until 2 pm EST during which you may observe minor glitches. If you observe any issues, please feel free to share with us.

    Endpoint Manager

    Endpoint Manager Core

    New Features

    Onboarding Wizard for Enrollment


    We redesigned the enrollment process to make it easier to add new devices. You can now enroll and protect your device in a single wizard.
    Admins now have the option to ‘Enroll’, ‘Protect’, or ‘Enroll + Protect’ when adding new devices. You can pick different options for individual devices, or different options per operating system.


    Apple DEP Integration

    Endpoint Manager now supports Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP), an important boon for customers who manage devices in the Apple ecosystem. DEP simplifies the previously complex procedure of enrolling and managing MAC/iOS devices, reducing the number of steps required before a device is ready for use.

    From the September release onwards, iOS devices that are managed over DEP will be synced automatically with Endpoint Manager.
    • Sync and manage iOS devices from Apple DEP
    • Manage enrollment and notification settings of Apple DEP
    • Add, remove or renew Apple DEP tokens on Endpoint Manager.

    For more information about Apple DEP, please visit https://www.apple.com/business/site/docs/DEP_Guide.pdf

    Security

    New Features

    Virtual Desktop events

    You can now view virtual desktop logs in the ‘Event View’ tab of ‘Security Dashboards’.

    Virtual Desktop Status in Device List

    New ‘Virtual Desktop’ column added to the device list. There are three icons to indicate the status of the virtual desktop on the endpoint:
    • Virtual Desktop is running
    • Virtual Desktop is not running
    • Virtual Desktop is not supported

    Disable realtime scans on network files - Mac OS profiles

    In the last release, we added a setting to MAC CCS to disable automatic scans on network items. We have now added the same setting to MAC OS profiles in Endpoint manager. This means the feature can be more easily rolled out to all managed endpoints.

    “Real time virus scans are now optional for items on shared network drives. This can improve performance by eliminating needless scans on write-restricted files. If an endpoint does not have the rights to delete/quarantine files in a shared folder anyway, then there is little reason to scan them at this point. Any files copied to the endpoint will, of course, still be scanned locally.”

    Device tree added to Security Dashboard pages

    A much requested quality-of-life feature, the new device tree lets you view events, and take actions, on specific device groups.


    Remote Control

    New Features

    ITSM Service Inventory

    New feature lets you silently connect to a managed endpoint to manage the local service inventory.

    Added multi-language support to the Remote Control application

    You can now use the Remote Control app for Mac and Windows devices in German, French, Portuguese and Chinese. Bug Fixes
    • Fixed device takeover error messages.

    Remote Monitoring and Management

    New Features

    SNMP Monitoring

    You can now use SNMP monitoring to monitor network devices as well. It is now also possible to:
    • Manage devices which are found on the network
    • Create profiles for network devices
    • Create monitors for network devices.

    Auto Enrollment for Network Devices

    You can now define auto-enrollment preferences for network discoveries.

    Clearer, Filterable, Exportable Procedure logs

    You can now email scheduled procedure logs. The details in the logs themselves have also been improved.


    Bug Fixes

    ● Fixed bug that caused disk space monitors to produce a false positive.


    Patch Management

    New Features


    CVE Visibility - Vulnerability Management


    You can now view CVE details about issues affecting vulnerable devices.

    Bug Fixes

    ● Fixed an issue where MSI errors during a 3rd party patch operation were not getting reported in the Endpoint Manager UI.

    ● Fixed an issue that caused Endpoint Manager to show the wrong number of installed/uninstalled patches.

    ● Fixed issue that prevented patching from working properly in some cases

    ● Fixed bug that caused software inventory scans to take an abnormally long time


    Comodo Client Security

    Windows

    New Features
    • Website filtering. New feature automatically detects and blocks harmful websites, improving online security for endpoint users.
    • Detailed parent process logging. CCS logs now show the parent process of applications blocked by the containment module.
    • Macro script monitoring. The antivirus now monitors the execution of macro scripts and blocks malicious behaviour.
    Improvements
    • Confirmation message shown when attempting to exit the Virtual Desktop. You now have the option to show a confirmation message to end-users if they try to close the virtual desktop. This is to help ensure users do not accidently leave a virtual session.
    • ‘OK’ button added added to the ‘PIN’ popup that is shown when the Virtual Desktop starts. The button allows the user to close/hide the PIN popup.
    • Added option to force users to scroll to the end of the Virtual Desktop Disclaimer.
    • Virtual Desktop sessions now have a maximum time expiry time of 24 hours.
    • %USERPROFILE%\Downloads\* folder has been removed from the ‘Shared Spaces’ file group. This location could potentially contain valuable user information.

    Reporting

    New Features

    Improved reporting capabilities. We added hardware Inventory , antivirus scan history, and risk reports. You can find all new and existing reports at ‘Dashboard’ > ‘Reports’.
