Release Notes Through 2023-12-07


Microsoft Cloud Inspector Consolidation

Liongard has released an enhanced version of the Microsoft 365 Inspector by consolidating the data from the Azure Active Directory, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams Inspectors into the Microsoft 365 Inspector. This update aims to streamline and eliminate repetitious information, ensuring that only vital data points deliver maximum value.

Additionally, you only need to deploy the Microsoft 365 Inspector for any new customers to cover the entire Microsoft Suite, resulting in reduced setup time and less navigation to view your customers' data.

For more detailed information, please reference our support article.

macOS Agent and Inspector in Production Status

Liongard is excited to announce the official transition of the macOS Inspector into full production, heralding a leap forward in system monitoring capabilities. This release substantially improves data extraction, ensuring richer insights into macOS environments.

With new default metrics and alerts, users can now glean deeper operational intelligence and respond swiftly to critical system changes. Additionally, the macOS Inspector introduces new integration mappings, offering asset configuration delivery to ConnectWise and IT Glue and helping deliver comprehensive, unified monitoring solutions across diverse IT ecosystems.

For a full, detailed list of all new data points, please visit our Endpoint System Inspector details page.

SonicWall Capture Client (SCC) Inspector in Production Status

The new Liongard SonicWall Capture Client (SCC) Inspector enhances partner capabilities by integrating with Liongard's key configuration change detection, reporting, and alerting features using data collected from the SCC EDR solution. The Inspector retrieves Endpoint, Policy, and Management settings data from their SCC instance. This Inspector assists with monitoring and reporting on endpoint health, threat detection and prevention, Malware and Virus Activity, Device Compliance and more.

The configuration process involves creating a "Parent" inspector, which automatically discovers available tenants in the SCC instance. Partners can activate "Child" inspectors for more specific tenant-related data, retrieving Endpoint, Policy, and Management settings data from their SCC instance. This parent/child format in Liongard surfaces general overview data at the parent inspector level and more specific details at the child inspector.

For more information on how to deploy this Inspector, please visit our documentation.

Cyber Risk Dashboard Updates

Partners now have the ability to show or hide a specific tile on the Cyber Risk Dashboard, giving them more control over what is visible.

Using the "Tiles" drop-down in the upper-right corner of each section, you can customize the specific tiles you wish to appear in each dashboard section.
