Dynamic Endpoint Group Support for Endpoint Type & OS

You can now define membership for a dynamic endpoint group based on the specific endpoint type (i.e., workstation, server, or mobile) or operating system version (e.g., SUSE Linux 12.1).


When you define an endpoint group for an operating system, Traps management service presents a list of operating systems and versions based on your registered endpoints. After you define your endpoint group, you can use it to manage Endpoints, apply policy or apply exceptions to endpoints of a specific type or operating system version.

Traps Reporting

The Traps management service can now generate the Traps Security and Deployment Report, which provides a high-level summary of the security and deployment status of your endpoints. You can schedule the report to run on a recurring basis, or you can generate the report on-demand. You can also optionally send the report to one or more e-mail addresses.


Sample Traps Reports:
