Release Notes For October 06, 2017

New
Palo Alto Firewall AddOn - Found a bad actor with Perch? Want to also block it on your firewall? Just check a box while you’re remediating and Perch will send it to the firewall for you.
  • Manage (including manually adding) firewall blocking through Perch admin panels
New
Perch.help - Having trouble getting around Perch town? We’ve launched a new site to bring together all the best tips and tricks for getting the most out of Perch. Have a topic not covered on the site that you’d love to know more about? Let us know.
New
(Very soon) User login history - Group admins have a menu item to see the login history for the team’s members; users have a new tab on their profile page to see their own login history.
Bugfix
Subnet tags are now displayed on public IPs
Bugfix
Community Dashboard - community files panel now updates correctly when you switch communities; this was purely a visual bug, no files were shared between communities.
Bugfix
Community Dashboard - top analysts panel no longer shows analysts with zero points; if there are no analysts with points, you’ll see a friendly, informative message.
Bugfix
General visual cleanup: aligned some buttons here, tweaked a message there.
Note
Snooze suppressions have been removed. We want to keep Perch simple and easy to use; Snooze suppressions weren’t pulling their weight in the relationship and we decided they needed to go. It’s not you Snooze suppressions, it’s us. We’re sure you’ll find somebody nice.
Note
Port numbers removed from alert Perchybana links: we found that just using the targets and time window gave the best visibility into the traffic relevant to investigating the alert.
Note
Infrastructure upgraded to Python 3.6; other third-party libraries updated to latest and greatest. Keeping Perchy healthy and well preened lets him focus on watching your networks with confidence.
