v1.40

9 Aug, 2022

New and Noteworthy

  • We are excited to announce the public launch of Panther’s Knowledge Base (KB)! Panther’s KB, available at help.panther.com, is a searchable collection of articles that answer your most common questions and help you troubleshoot unexpected issues.
    • Some of the key features of the KB include:
      • Faster support. Offering self-service content allows us to help you at scale, as you have access to KB content 24/7. 
      • Powerful search. You can enter terms into the search field at the top of every page to find relevant articles.
      • Frequent content updates. The collection of articles grows daily as we interact with customers and learn about commonly asked questions. 
    • The launch of the KB, as well as the recent launch of the Panther Community, reinforce our commitment to supporting our customers and building a strong community.

New Schemas

  • New schemas have been added for the following logs:

Features

  • You can now set up the Panther Analysis Tool (PAT) via the Panther API.
    • This change is made possible by an update to PAT that enables it to work using an API token that can be generated from the Console. This allows you to onboard to PAT without an AWS account and manage your permissions without the token expiring.

Enhancements

  • When editing S3 or CloudWatch log sources, you are now prompted to set up your IAM role and update the CloudFormation or Terraform template before saving your changes. This streamlines the editing process for a better user experience.
  • The schema inference feature now continues to run in the background when you navigate away from the schema inference page.
  • Parameters in Panther’s CloudFormation deployment parameters have been updated:
    • The default value of the FeatureSandboxedExecFlows parameter has been changed from ‘test-rule’ to ‘test-policy,test-rule’.
    • The following parameters have been added:
      • LambdaInsightsEnabled
      • LoadBalancerSecurityGroupCidr2
      • LoadBalancerSecurityGroupCidr3
      • EnableAlertActivity
