Manage Inactive Control Inclusion/Exclusion

With this API enhancement, you can now choose to exclude inactive controls (SDC, UDC) from the host compliance posture information in the API response. A new parameter excludeInactiveControl has been introduced to exclude inactive controls.

User Information Validation

With this release, we have implemented user information input validations when adding or editing users. The list of validations added is available in the detailed release notes.

View Network Name in Host List Detection API

GET, POST /api/2.0/fo/asset/host/vm/detection
DTD or XSD changes: Yes

With this release, we have added the field – Network Name to the HLD API. The field displays the name of the network to which you are connected. The details to be displayed here are matched with the Network ID field and then displayed to the user.

Addition of EPSS as QDS Factor

GET /api/2.0/fo/asset/host/vm/detection
GET /api/2.0/fo/knowledge_base/qvs

DTD or XSD changes: Yes

With this release, EPSS (Exploit Prediction Scoring System) is added in Host List Detection API and KnowledgeBase (CVE centric API) API as a QDS factor. Prior to this, only CVSS, (Common Vulnerability Scoring System), RTI (Real Threat Indicators), and ECM (Exploit Code Maturity) QDS factor was used. Now with EPSS QDS factor, you can analyze the severity of vulnerability and prioritize vulnerability remediation.
