Welcome back to the blog! According to leading NASA climatologist, Gavin Schmidt, the month of July witnessed Earth’s hottest temperatures in “hundreds if not thousands of years!” This unprecedented heat seems to have propelled our dedicated product development team indoors, resulting in an extensive array of features and enhancements to the Exabeam Security Operations Platform.

Let’s dive into the highlights of this July’s Exabeam feature release.

In this article:

Site Collectors: enhancements

Windows Event Collector (WEC), one of the most common data sources, is now supported with Site Collector. This release allows the collection of logs natively from Windows servers. Users can also perform WEC upgrades over the Exabeam management UI, and manage WEC templates.

Furthermore, Site Collector installation enhancements, port pre-checks, and detailed error messages provide a smoother setup and troubleshooting process. Clear and concise error messages assist users in identifying and resolving issues promptly.

Context Collectors: APIs and expanded audit logs

Context Collectors now offer the ability to create and read context tables programmatically using APIs. These new API enhancements enable customers to automate user onboarding, validation, and health checks.

Besides this, audit logs now report on configuration changes to Create, Modify, Disable in our new cloud platform, simplifying compliance reporting and requirements.

Log Stream: improved Event Builder and error messages

To provide users with more control over Event Builder rules in Log Stream, Exabeam introduces the option to specify multiple parser conditions, allowing for precise data stream filtering.

In addition, the platform offers improved parser error messages, equipping users with essential information, including root cause and next steps for troubleshooting. This feature update facilitates troubleshooting without the need for prior support engagement.

The Search feature receives a significant boost, providing users with suggestions for subjects, products, and vendors when building advanced queries. This enhancement offers a guided approach to searching and refining results.

Add to this the ability to use any date time field to build advanced queries, while new syntax operators enable searches for exact matches, significantly narrowing down search results.
