PRODUCT UPDATE BULLETIN 19.1 -  August 12th 2014

Following the release of version 19.0 in early July, we are continuing the development of the Webroot SecureAnywhere® Global Site Manager (GSM) console by adding Global Alerts with the release of version 19.1. We have also made optimizations to allow hundreds of sites to be managed under a single GSM console. This now lets our MSP Partners and large enterprise customers manage a large number of sites from one GSM console.

In this release we have also added to our Standard console the ability to easily deploy additional endpoints to a specific group.

NEW – Global Alerts – This latest addition to the Webroot SecureAnywhere “Global Site Manager” (GSM) console adds new “Global Alerts” features within the Global Settings section of the GSM console.

Updated – Group Endpoint Deployment - Improves the ability to deploy endpoints to a specified group from within the Endpoint Protection console.
  1. New - Global Alerts - Allows an administrator to create alerts at a Global level, which are then be applied to any ‘child’ Endpoint Protection ‘site’ (customer) below. This significantly reduces the maintenance overhead as these can now all be handled from one shared location instead of having to manually manage individual site alerts.  [img][/img] New centralized Global Alerts available within Global Settings tab. Alerts can now be setup and managed centrally by simply selecting which type of alert you wish to receive (Infection Alert, Installation Alert, Infection Summary, or Installation Summary), along with the frequency at which these alerts should be sent.  [img][/img] Simply add a new Alert using intuitive pull-down selections from Basic Settings tab. [img][/img] Use the Recipients tab to select an existing distribution list or create a new distribution list. [img][/img] Use the Sites tab to select which sites you want to trigger the alert from. [img][/img] Then use the Email Template tab to create the message that should be sent out. Email distribution lists are easily setup and managed by simply selecting an existing distribution list and editing it as necessary, or creating a new one by assigning a name and entering the email addresses you want to use for a new distribution list.  [img][/img] Simply select and edit an existing Alert Distribution List. [img][/img] Or, easily create a new one from scratch. The new Global Alerts created at the GSM level are also visible in a “View Only” mode at the ‘Site’ level, as changes to Global Alerts are only permitted at the GSM level.  [img][/img] List view differentiates between Global and local Site level alerts. Clicking on a Global Alert provides the following site level details.  [img][/img] Read only view of Global Alerts at Site level.  
  2. Updated – Group Endpoint Deployment - The ability to deploy endpoints to a specified Group has been improved, and added as an additional option within the Endpoint Protection console. To perform this action, an administrator simply selects the Group they wish to deploy endpoints into, and selects “Deploy Endpoints to this Group” from the new “Actions” drop down menu. This then displays the information required to install the software via the command line, and automatically adds the endpoint into the correct Group.  [img][/img] New ‘Actions’ drop down menu. [img][/img] Creates Command line to deploy endpoints to a specific Group.
