As always we are trying to come up with new ideas and implement stuff we’ve had in our roadmap for a long time now.
Today we’ve released a new version of Syspeace with a few new features.
The major news is that there’s now a new feature in the Attack Control Section for further analysis.
The analysis section enables you to create reports on specific IP addresses, usernames or domain or do the reversed, i.e. find out all of the ones who are NOT a specific IP address, domain or username. Or sort out the ones with successful logins or only the ones with failed logins.
As a side note , we’re also happy to tell you that we’ve so far, since July 15th, have helped you guys block 73 000 + brute force attempts, gathered them, classified them, added some of them to the GBL that we introduced in 1.1.10 and thus helped you to be preemptively defended by getting this distrubited to all of the other Syspeace installations around the world.
ABOUT OLDER VERSIONS
Those of you still running an older version (prior to 1.20) we would highly recommend you had a look at the newer versions and the stuff we’ve put in there.
Here’s a list of what we’ve been up to so far:
|19/9||1.1.30||Upgraded the Attack control: improved search and added analysis of login statistics.|
|11/9||1.1.23||Fixed bug where new installations would have problems with the reporting feature.|
|10/9||1.1.22||Updated registration process in GUI.|

As we’ve stated earlier, the older version will run until 2012-12-31 but maybe you would be interested in the new features we’ve added?
For anyone running 1.20 + we’d highly recommend upgrading if you have the possibility and since we’ve also taken care some minor bugs in the Global Black list function.
ABOUT THE FUTURE OF SYSPEACE AND OUR ROADMAP
Our roadmap for the nearest future is to start looking more closely into a Windows 2003 version since it’s been frequently asked by you guys.
