Release Notes Through 2023-02-09

Platform Updates

CIS Report Templates

There are five new CIS Control related Report Templates available for Partner use:

  • Asset Inventory (CIS V8 Control 1.1)
  • Software Inventory (CIS V8 Control 2.1)
  • Account Management (CIS V8 Control 5.1 - 5.5)
  • Windows Patching (CIS V8 Control 7.4, 7.5)
  • Email Security (CIS V8 Control 9.5)

These templates are a great starting point for MSPs who want to strengthen their Environments' security posture by reviewing common security related data.

Since these also correlate to specific CIS controls, Partners are able to quickly provide proof of standard security practices in place to compliance officers and cyber insurance companies.

The new Report Templates can be found by navigating to Reports > Templates and searching for "CIS"


Default Actionable Alert Templates

There are four new Actionable Alert Templates available for Partner use:

  • Alert Template (Queue)
  • Billing Template
  • Escalation Template (L2/L3)
  • Support Template (L1)

By default, these Templates are not turned on and will require Partners to turn them on and apply them to Environments for them to begin triggering Actionable Alerts

The new Actionable Alert Templates can be found by navigating to Admin > Actionable Alerts > Templates and sorting by the "Created On" column


Crushbank Integration

The Crushbank Integration brings Liongard Environments, System Inspectors, Timeline data, and Metrics into the Crushbank platform

Liongard data is aggregated with data Crushbank collects from other sources and when users perform a search within the Crushbank application, any related Liongard data meeting that search criteria will be surfaced in those search results.

More information can be found by viewing Crushbank's Documentation


Support Portal

Liongard has created an additional resource for support. Here you will find guided resources for troubleshooting common issues and can access other resources including our documentation site, Liongard Academy, Liongard Status Page, and more.

The support portal can be found at Support > Support Portal
