Improvements:

Once the Blacklists and Whitelists have been defined here, they can be used inside a Policy.

Bug fixes:

  • Several fixes were implemented for the Advanced Printer and MTP Scanning feature. They relate to unintended behavior of this feature used in combination with some applications.
  • When many logs were generated in a short period of time (a couple of seconds), situations where the Endpoint Protector Client was sending the same logs twice could happen. Fixed.
  • File hash and file shadowing was not working all the time on some password protected network shares. Fixed.
  • Fixed some issues that could occur during installation or upgrade.
  • Customized versions of Outlook used in combination with Endpoint Protector unsupported languages would result in user difficulties or in the Endpoint Protector Client blocking access. Fixed.
