    Policy Manager, Policy Manager Proxy 15.01

    Policy Manager differences between the Windows and Linux versions:

    • Push Installation and Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) package support features are available only when Policy Manager Console is running on Windows platforms.

    Fixed issues compared to version 15.00

    • Upgrading Policy Manager or Policy Manager Proxy with locked files potentially caused Java Runtime to break. Restarting the system now properly fixes such situations.
    • Server-generated PDFs for custom reports in the new Web Reporting now contains the full set of columns
    • The limitation to 500 rows for the host properties report in the new Web Reporting has now been removed
    • Some Windows regional settings (for example with Latvian) might have caused the Policy Manager Console to crash
    • The Policy Manager Proxy's fspmp-enroll-tls-certificate tool does not show warnings anymore

    New features and improvements

    • Data mining view
      • The data mining view is an assistant for administrators to search and browse the data to resolve issues, verify concerns, and create queries for custom reports, and to export data to react in a timely and smart fashion.
      • Data mining works with four data set types: hosts, alerts, software updates, and deleted hosts. A full-text search is available in addition to property filters that search through all relevant item properties. One search query can work with multiple related data sets.
      • Search queries can be saved for subsequent reuse in Console and can be used for custom reports and data export with REST API.  
      • For more details, see 'Policy Manager's data mining feature explained' Knowledge Base article: .
    • New Web Reporting
      • Policy Manager introduces the new Web Reporting with a wider range of reports and features.
      • Besides the revised set of reports, the new version improvements include more flexible scheduler options and all scheduled configurations can be seen in one view.
      • The new Web Reporting adds support for creating custom reports. Custom reporting is built on top of the search queries. Currently, all published queries become available as custom reports with table representations.
      • Both the new and the old Web Reporting are running in parallel. The new Web Reporting is opened on the default Web Reporting port (8081), while port 8085 is used for the old version. The automatic migration of the scheduled report configurations is not available.
    • REST API for fetching the data
      • Business Suite can be integrated with a monitoring and reporting ecosystem using Policy Manager REST API that serves data.
      • Search queries are used as a basis for data fetching. A saved query has to be published so that it is accessible over the API. Copy the URLs from the Console > Data mining > My queries dialog. Search query results are served in JSON and CSV formats.
    • Support for Client Security 15
      • Support for Policy Manager Proxy auto-selection rules to configure the location-aware selection of proxies.
      • Added the Windows > Real-time scanning > General > Enable Antimalware Scan Interface (AMSI) setting to configure integration with the AMSI interface.
      • Added the Windows > Real-time scanning > DeepGuard > Block rare and suspicious files setting to configure DeepGuard prevalence-based rules.
      • Added the Windows > Centralized management > Local user interface > Enable local user interface setting to define whether the F-Secure tray icon is shown to the end-users.
      • Added the Windows > Software Updater > General > Show Software Updater options to users setting to allow software updates be managed with the local user interface.
      • Added the Windows > Centralized management > Bypassing product security > Enable Tamper protection setting to configure endpoint protection against unusual interruptions.
      • Support for Browsing Protection alerts being triggered when malicious or suspicious sites are blocked.
      • Support for various firewall improvements:
        • Added the Windows > Firewall > Enable firewall configuration through Policy Manager setting to improve compatibility with environments using Microsoft or other tools for firewall management.
        • Firewall block rules support a configurable option to send alerts when the rule is triggered.
        • Added support to define the rule's scope with Windows application package IDs.
        • Policy Manager administrators can hide certain profiles from end-users using the Windows > Firewall > Changing profiles > Hide profiles from user editor.
    • Support for Atlant for Virtual Environments
      • Introduced the new Virtual security tab that contains the configuration policies for Offload Scanning Agent and Atlant for Virtual Environments, which supersedes Scanning and Reputation Server.
    • Other changes and improvements
      • Resolved an issue in Policy Manager Console where Firewall and Browsing protection features were shown as active even for hosts with these features deselected during installation.
      • The time limit for outdated virus definitions is now configurable as the Policy Manager Server parameter on the Tools > Server configuration > Anti-virus page and applied accordingly in the Policy Manager Console user interface. This also affects the virus definition alerts sent by Policy Manager itself as well as managed Policy Manager Proxies.
      • Infection alerts from 14.x and 15.x series endpoints that are forwarded to SIEM and Syslog include infected objects, infection names, and action on infection as CEF and LEEF parameters.
      • Better maintenance of Software Updater cache to promptly invalidate cached software updates that are updated on vendor sites.
      • Support for the new signature-based criteria for Application control rules.
      • Policy Manager Console is now properly rendered on DPI monitors.
      • Scanning reports now show a reason if scanning an object was skipped due to password-protected archives.
      • Automatic backup now includes various audit log files needed to build the search index.
      • Dropped support for weak cipher suites for TLS protocol. This may result in connectivity issues with outdated Windows hosts that are missing e.g. KB3042058 updates from May 2015.
    • Policy Manager Proxy improvements
      • The time limit used by Policy Manager Proxy to issue outdated virus definition alerts is configurable from Policy Manager Server on the Tools > Server configuration > Anti-virus page.
      • Better maintenance of Software Updater cache to promptly invalidate cached software updates that are updated on vendor sites.

    Known issues

    • Policy-based repair operations and shifting between Premium and Standard editions are not supported for Client Security 15.x. Use uninstallation and installation operations instead.
    • Policy Manager and Policy Manager Proxy cannot be installed to directories that contain double-byte characters in the path. This includes national characters in non-ISO-latin character schemes, for example, Japanese and Chinese versions of the supported platforms. We recommend that you use the default installation path.
    •  Issue with "useradd" in Policy Manager debian packages can cause problems if UID/GID spaces are synchronized between several servers. As a workaround, you may create Policy Manager users/groups manually before installation.
    • The following warnings may appear on rpm upgrades, but you can safely ignore them:
      • warning: erase unlink of /opt/f-secure/fspms/lib/xmlgraphics-commons-2.1.jar failed: No such file or directory
      • warning: erase unlink of /opt/f-secure/fspms/lib/xml-apis-1.0.b2.jar failed: No such file or directory
      • warning: erase unlink of /opt/f-secure/fspms/lib/websocket-servlet-9.3.16.v20170120.jar failed: No such file or directory

    Note: Server Core installation option is not supported.

    Installation

    The following single computer installation is the quickest way to set up a Policy Manager environment. Consult the Client Security Administrator’s Guide or Policy Manager Administrator’s Guide for the full step-by-step instructions.

    Install all Policy Manager components on the same computer.

    Note: If you install Policy Manager Server on a computer that has Windows Firewall turned on, open the necessary ports in the firewall.

    Run Policy Manager Console from the Start menu and log in with the password that you created for the ‘admin’ user during installation.

    When Policy Manager Console opens, you need to define the policy domain structure. You can create policy domains based on your company structure or products that you want to manage. Select the domain pane and choose New Domain from the Edit menu.

    To add hosts to the policy domain tree:

    1. Install Client Security to hosts and choose Import New Hosts from the Edit menu to import the hosts into the domain,
    2. Choose Autodiscover Windows Hosts from the Edit menu to browse the Windows domain and to install Client Security to the selected hosts, or
    3. Choose New Host from the Edit menu. Note that this is mainly for testing Policy Manager Console. If you have no actual hosts, the status information, alerts, and reports are not available.

    Choose Distribute from the File menu to generate policy files and to register the hosts with Policy Manager.

    Upgrade

    Note: Before starting the upgrade, close Policy Manager Console and make sure that javaw.exe is not started in any other Windows sessions. If the following error appears: "Error: could not create the Java Virtual Machine. Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.", uninstall the product and install it again. This issue does not affect your existing data.

    To upgrade from a previous version of Policy Manager:

    /var/opt/f-secure/fspms/data/fspms.proxy.config

     2) Why are the files located in unusual places?

     All Policy Manager files have their own location that is based on the File Hierarchy Standard (FHS). For more information on FHS, see http://www.pathname.com/fhs/.

     3) Why does Policy Manager Server not start?

    Make sure that you have run the configuration script:

    # /opt/f-secure/fspms/bin/fspms-config

    Make sure that the ports which have been configured for Policy Manager Server are active by logging in as the root user and running the 'netstat -lnpt' command.

    4) How can I start, stop, restart, or check the status of Policy Manager components?

    Policy Manager Server:

    # /etc/init.d/fspms {start|stop|restart|status}

    5) How can I specify a HTTP Proxy?

    You should edit /var/opt/f-secure/fspms/data/fspms.proxy.config configuration file.

    Restart Policy Manager Server to take the new settings into use.

    6) How can I change the default ports (80 and 8080) of Policy Manager Server?

    Configure these ports with the configuration script:

    # /opt/f-secure/fspms/bin/fspms-config

    7) How can I change the default port (8081) of Web Reporting?

    Configure the Web Reporting port with the configuration script:

    # /opt/f-secure/fspms/bin/fspms-config

    8) Is there any diagnostic tool I can use?

    Yes, use 'fsdiag' to collect information about your system and related packages. Enter the following command as the root user:

    # /opt/f-secure/fspms/bin/fsdiag

    All collocted information is stored in the 'fsdiag.tar.gz' archive that is located in the current directory.

    9) How can I install software to remote hosts from Policy Manager Console on Linux?

    Export installation packages to JAR files and use ilaunchr.exe tool to install software to hosts, for example by using logon scripts. Follow the process that is described in the manual (section 3.4.3 "Local Installation and Updates with Pre-Configured Packages").

    The ilaunchr.exe tool is in the '/opt/f-secure/fspmc/bin' directory.

    10) How can I configure Policy Manager for large environments?

    1. Increase 'Host polling interval' value to 30-60 minutes in Policy Manager Console.
    2. Use Policy Manager Proxy to minimize the database update load on Policy Manager Server.
