New Features in v6.x.x

  • New User Interface: We redesigned the interface for a better user experience.
    This look is modern, with a new dashboard and a design that reduces customer interactions, allowing a faster incident response.



  • New Host Insight: Host Insight is a new feature that gives you a quick overview of the security posture of managed clients by assessing them using compliance and security checks.

  • BitDefender Integration: Bitdefender prevents and detects malware infections. This new feature allows ACSIA to deploy Bitdefender on hosts automatically and orchestrate detection.

    Customers using BitDefender can integrate it into ACSIA XDR Plus. It requires the product to be uninstalled, then reinstalled before activating the antivirus again.

  • Activation Code: We introduced during the first login a banner where you can insert the License Code and finalize the access.

  • Sysmon: Updated to the new version that blocks portable executables files (PE) from being written on the disk. This feature's disabled by default and must be enabled by the users under the settings page.
