How can we help?

2024-W02 release - January 13th, 2024


General Notice

  • Reminder - Auvik collectors running on deprecated versions of Windows are not supported.

    Upcoming improvements to the collector may not be compatible with running on a deprecated Windows OS.

    All desktop versions of Windows 10 other than 22H2 and below (Windows 10 21H2, 8.1, 8, 7, XP, etc.) and all versions of Windows Server 2012r2 and below (2012, 2008r2, 2008, etc) have reached their Microsoft Extended Support Expiry date. They are no longer actively supported by Microsoft. All Auvik Windows collectors (both installed or command line version) should installed on an actively supported version of Windows. Issues occurring with collectors installed on an unsupported version of Windows are no longer maintained. The recommendation is to install the collector software on a supported version of Windows or install a collector using one of the other collector versions Auvik offers.

    Please migrate any collectors you have installed on a non-supported OS to a supported OS as soon as possible. Upcoming improvements to the collector will not work on unsupported Operating Systems.

    For more information, please refer to OS End of Service and the Auvik Collector

Auvik SaaS Management (5)
  • Improved

    • Improved the ability to export .csv files across the application. Exports generate faster and are now available in high-volume areas like Security Logs.

    • Users will have improved controls over ASM permissions, including setting permissions for first-time ASM users who are routed to ASM from other Auvik products.

  • Fixed

    • Resolved an issue in which some external users from GWS/Azure we’re being automatically imported as ASM users.

    • Added the Sales Hub to the default “Client Admin” Role

  • Coming Soon:

    • Accounts Reporting: Accounts reporting and data exports have now been built into the application. The next step is to use that data to build an insightful report to help businesses better identify which accounts and usernames are in use across their organization. This will shed light on service account activity, frequently used user accounts, dormant accounts, and more. The goal is to align this reporting with major compliance frameworks such as NIST & CIS.
