  • Automated policy recommendations – based on the existing network behaviors of devices in a device profile plus the observed behavior for that profile across crowdsourced device data. This extensive device behavior comparison helps provide high confidence policies for segmentation or blocking unwanted behavior for a particular device without hampering its functioning.
  • Industry risk trend visibility – Compare the risk score for your device profiles with the risk score of crowdsourced device profiles. You can see if your score is better, worse, or about the same as others.
  • Query feature enhancement – In addition to querying data about devices and security alerts, you can now query for the third type of data entity: vulnerabilities. For example, you can query for all devices in a particular profile with a specific vulnerability. 
  • MDS2 Enhancement – The Device Details page for medical devices now contains 10 additional MDS2 fields
