Armor Marketplace UPDATE

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), in the Armor Marketplace screen, versions for every virtual machine are clearly displayed in a single screen in marketplace.

Previously, to see the version number, the user needed to select a specific virtual machine and review the details page.

To learn more, see Armor Marketplace.

Ubuntu 12  END-OF-LIFE

Ubuntu 12 has reached end-of-life. Neither the manufacturer, nor Armor will support Ubuntu 12.

Armor does not recommend that you use an end-of-life product due to security and compliance risks.

If you currently run an Ubuntu 12 machine, you must troubleshoot before March 31, 2019.

To update your supported version, please contact Armor Support.

Microsoft WSUS for Virtual Machines 

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), when you purchase a Windows virtual machine, the virtual machine will be automatically assigned to a particular Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) group. These groups provide a regular patching schedule for your virtual machine.

By default, the monthly group will be added to newly created virtual machines; however, you can always contact Armor Support to change the group.

Additionally, existing Windows virtual will be automatically assigned to a group.

Purchased Products 

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), any product discounts that you have will display in the Purchased Products screen.

Previously, discounts were only visible in published invoices.

Malware Scans NEW

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), in the updated Malware Protection screen, you can now perform a manual scan for your virtual machine or instance.

This feature appears in the Malware Service Health table.

You can perform a manual scan if:

  • The Malware subagent has communicated (heartbeated) with Armor within the last 4 hours, and
  • A scan is not already in-progress.

To use this feature, you must have the following permissions assigned to your account:

  • Write Trend Manual Scan
  • Read Trend Manual Scan

Additionally, you can view current and past scans in the newly created Scan Activity section.

To learn more, see Malware Protection (Armor Complete) or ANYWHERE Malware Protection.

Intrusion Detection 

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), the Intrusion Detection System screen has been updated to include an interactive guided tour of the screen.

Additionally, the screen has been updated to include two new tables to display top detected signatures and top VMs with detected signatures.
