    • Other small improvements.
  • The Transfer Limit feature has been added, providing the option to set a limit (number of files or files size) that can be transferred within a set time interval. Transfers through devices, online applications and network shares can be included or excluded from this limit.
  • As a result of the constant internal vulnerabilities audits, several security improvements have been made.
  • Continuing the performance and optimization improvements, the Database Backups and SIEM log cleaner are now better managed, reducing maintenance work.

Bug fixes:

  • Due to the recent changes on the Device Control section, for Already Existing Devices, when adding devices to a User, they would be duplicated on the Computer as well. Fixed.
