What's New in version 2021.2 Release (May 26, 2021)

  • The Security Findings and Security Risks pages now include imported alerts from Azure Security Center and AWS Security Hub. You can link directly to the alert  in the Azure Portal or AWS Console to see full details on an alert.

  • You can now link between pages while maintaining context. This will make it easier to view your Risks and Findings in a way that works best for you. 
  • When viewing a risk on the Security Risks page, you can now see all findings (passed and failed) for that control on the Security Findings page.
  • When viewing details on either the Security Findings or Security Risks page, you now can click the resource name to jump directly to that resource on the Resources page. You can also see all findings associated with the same control across all of your cloud connections. 
  • When viewing resource details on the Resources page, you can now jump directly to all risks or all findings for that resource. 
  • Findings for resources that no longer exist in your public cloud are now hidden 24 hours after the resources have been removed.
  • Remediation steps for some findings have been updated – specifically for Azure, where the Azure portal interface has changed since they were initially published.

What's New in version 2020.7  (November 16, 2020) 


The Security Risks and Security Findings pages have two new filters. Resource Type allows you to see only resources of a specific type, and Resource allows you to narrow down your view to a specific resource.

  • When you set filters on the Security Risks, Security Findings, or Resources pages, The URL in your browser's address bar changes. 
    • You can bookmark a page with a filter applied so you will see the same filters when you open that bookmark. 
    • You can copy the URL in your address bar and send it to someone else with access to your account. When they click the link, they will see the same filters you applied.
  • If you set a filter on the Security Risks page, and then click through to the Security Findings page, your filter will be retained; and vice versa.
  • If you set a filter on the Security Risks, Security Findings, or Resources pages, click through to a different page, and then return to that page, your filter will be preserved. To clear the filter and reset the view, click Clear Filters.
