New features in ESET Security Management Center 7.1

Below is the overview of major changes in ESET Security Management Center version 7.1:

ESET Full Disk Encryption (add-on feature)

ESET Full Disk Encryption provides powerful encryption managed natively by ESET remote management consoles, and improves your organization’s data security to meet compliance regulations. It allows one-click deployment and initialization of the encryption with all the remaining workflows fully integrated via single pane of glass. Learn more.

Tags

Mark relevant objects (e.g. computers ) with any number of completely user-definable tags. These tags can then be used to easily identify and find sets of related objects. These tags are independent of existing structures such as Active Directory and can provide a fully customized way of organizing the most important items in the console.

Example: You might assign a tag "VIP" to computers that belong to particularly important employees as well as policies and tasks meant specifically for those. All these objects can then be identified easily at any time.

MSP Automation Framework

ESET Security Management Center (ESMC) is now fully integrated with ESET MSP Administrator 2 (EMA). This means that provisioning new customers is easier than ever before. After a new customer is added to EMA, it will automatically be synchronized with ESMC, and in just few easy steps a preconfigured installer, or a user with limited access to your management console can be created. Customers are automatically reflected in the group tree of ESMC and related objects are tagged with the customer name.

Easier and safer exclusions

ESET is always thriving to improve its detections capabilities. For this sake we are adding the "Advanced machine learning module" to our managed security products, and are improving the workflow of detection handling. New, more flexible, scanner settings defining detection sensitivity and handling of infections combined with a new wizard for the creation of exclusions is introduced to streamline the work with our products and further improve customer’s security posture. A new dedicated screen to manage all detection exclusions further increases visibility and reduces management workload. Learn more.
