BPA Release Notes v3.25

 

 

New Features

 

Added Best Practices Trending

We have introduced the ability to track your progress when implementing the Best Practices. In the past, we could only provide Trending on your adoption statistics, but now we have it for Best Practices too. You can monitor the progress and identify the gaps in Best Practices.

Trending for High Availability devices

Now, we have the ability to show Trending continuity even if you upload a tech support of secondary/Passive device or primary/active device. In the below example, when a user tries to generate BPA report for peer device, we will identify the Serial Numbers and fetch its peer's previous trending, so you do not miss the context and Trending data.

Added previous BPA reports Passing %

We have added two new columns under the Mapping Definition section for BPA, so we can track the progress for individual BPA checks. With this release, we can identify the previous BPA report passing % score and what is current Passing %, so we can review the progress and identify gaps where needed and as expected.

Added option to generate BPA report bundle through API

BPA API is available to generate raw json output that we see in the BPA report. We added the ability where a user has an option to generate a BPA .zip bundle (contains BPA html report, PDF summary report, and BPA spreadsheet) in addition to the json output for BPA results.

Improvements

 

Added fields for DoS Protection Policy

We made some improvements to ensure there is a separate record for each DoS policy. In addition, we have added more fields to view the details of the policy.

Threat Exceptions reorganized

When many exceptions were configured on a threat profile, each record was very big. This has been corrected to clearly viewing the threat exceptions and its packet capture setting.

Bugs

 

Updated the check for Verify Update Server

When the Verify Update server was configured properly it was reported missing due to XML behavior on configuration file. This has been corrected.

 

Device Support updated

When the support license was missing we were not printing the results and updating the message. This has been fixed.
