What’s New
Scan Virtual Machines in Azure Cloud using Cloud Perimeter Scanning

This release introduces the ability to scan public facing virtual machines in your Azure cloud environment using Cloud Perimeter Scanning. We’ve also introduced a new tracking method “Azure VM” (Azure Virtual Machine) for connector based Azure VM assets, and made changes to how we report cloud asset data in different API outputs and reports.

Added Windows Support for the Apache HTTP and IBM HTTP servers
/api/2.0/fo/auth/apache
You can now create and update Apache Web Server record for Apache HTTP and IBM HTTP servers in order to authenticate to Apache HTTP and IBM HTTP servers running on a Windows host, and scan it for compliance. Windows authentication is required so you’ll also need a Windows record for the host running the web server.

Added Windows Support for the IBM WebSphere Application Server
/api/2.0/fo/auth/ibm_websphere/
You can now create and update IBM WebSphere Application Server record to authenticate to a WebSphere Application Server running on a Windows host, and scan it for compliance. Windows authentication is required so you’ll also need a Windows record for the host running the web server.
