Brand new Webroot Endpoint integration with N-ABLE RMM. This integration allows customers to install and monitor Webroot endpoint protection with RMM using custom services. This new integration currently is available for PCs with Windows OS.  

 

New Features

  • Auto install Webroot Endpoint Protection via RMM custom services
  • Monitoring endpoints using Webroot Endpoint Protection via RMM custom services
  • On-demand Webroot scan using RMM scheduled task
  • On-demand Webroot virus definition polling using RMM scheduled task


Genesis 1.3.0.126 Business Endpoint agent

 This version provides:

  • Improved manageability. Genesis components will shutdown when WSA is shutdown (requires WSA-14 or higher)
  • Standalone module support. New modules can be released completely independently of the Genesis core.
  • Support extended to Windows Server OS versions (Windows Server 2012, 2016 and 2019)
  • Improved uninstall and update for better reliability

 

The release contains the following new and updated functionality. All 3 features help us get closer to our goal of retiring the Endpoint Protection Console. 

Some of these features were brought about by our community members in the ideation section - be sure to check it out!

Friendly name support 

Included in this release is an uplift of a feature that is available within the Endpoint Console. Users can assign a device a ‘Friendly Name’ that will replace the original Hostname associated with a device.

 

Any devices that have been renamed within the Endpoint console will now have this change reflected in the Management Console, allowing users to manage devices without having to navigate down to the Endpoint Console.


Persistent states 
 
The experience on both the sites and entities pages has been improved with the introduction of persistent states.
 
Going forward filters and searches will now persist across a user’s session. Admins can navigate away from a page and come back to the view they were previously working with.
 
We plan on introducing this functionality across other areas of the console in future releases.
 
Updated Site Only Admin view
 
This release introduces a new look and feel for Site Only Admins to bring it in line with the rest of the Webroot Management Console. Going forward this view will be the new staring place for Site Only Admins.
 
Admins will still have access to the Endpoint Protection Console which can be accessed via the option on the Dashboard. We’ll continue to uplift additional functionality over upcoming releases.

 

Bright Cloud SDK and CSI data files release to address requests from current CSI customers and available for POC customers, such as

  • Consumer vs customer identification feature allows the CASB vendor to distinguish which application a user is accessing and can set forth application-based policies
  • User identification feature that allows the CASB vendor to implement user-based policies using the log-in information
  • App icons delivery will provide a richer UI experience for the end user who is accessing the CASB vendors’ dashboard/console
  • Improved the CSI overlap resolution algorithm
  • Made name fields of CSI overlap resolution case-insensitive for request headers and response headers

Will make a big difference but also needs maintaining as a list, some of our clients swap machines around like it's going out of fashion

So encouraging to see consistent product innovation from Webroot. Seems like a small thing, but persistent states is a big help! Will be so nice to not have to reset my filters every time I browse away from a screen.

Excited to hear about the integration with N-Able as I have just started a trial with them. Have already trialled Atera but remember reading something about not being able to use my existing parent key and would need to obtain a new one. Hope this isn’t the case with N-Able also.
