2010-08-02 MonitorWare Agent 7.2 released

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Adiscon is proud to announce the 7.2 release of MonitorWare Agent. This is a minor release including some a new feature and minor bug fixes.

As a very important enhancement, this release offers support for native and standards-compliant secure syslog transport via SSL/TLS. Based on RFC5425, MonitorWare Agent now permits sending and receiving of messages in a secure way. All RFC5425 authentication modes are supported, so messages can not only traverse the network encrypted but clients and server can also authenticate each other. Among others, this provides a reliable safeguard against man-in-the middle attacks. Note that this type of authentication is much stronger than IP-based authorization modes (as, for example, are usually found in firewalls). Of course, both can be used together for even stronger security.

The "Send Mail" Action was improved again, and now supports the STARTTLS command. This means the connection to a mailserver can be secured during transmission, if the mailserver supports it.
