So for VirusScope admins can select if VirusScope should do Static Analysis or Dynamic Analysis or both or static analysis,dynamic analysis and machine learning?

Hi @Umut

Glad to see W11 23H2 is finally supported.

In addition, I saw that Virus Scope has exclusions, but it can only be set on the endpoint? This does not seem reasonable.

This problem also applies to website filtering. It can only be set on the endpoint and cannot be controlled on the console. In addition, has the problem of being unable to access HTTPS before website filtering been eliminated?

Thanks

Hi @allen,

Thank you for your concerns and improvement ideas. We have open tasks related to centralization, which align closely with the details you mentioned. We will take them into consideration when determining our priorities.

Best regards,
Umut.

Does CIS shares the same codebase as this or they are separate products these days? I know this one is based on CIS code, atleast it was.

If so, when can we expect a new cis with these fixes and improvements?

Hi @Umut

I am very happy to hear that you are doing these things, because many customers have told me that it is obviously a cloud control platform, but many functions can only be used when placed on the endpoint, which sometimes causes management difficulties.

interesting how everybody ignores when people ask about the implementation of this updates into cis. here or on the other forum. why is that?

I keep asking myself the same thing, there and here no one comments on the subject, not even to say a date or say anything, everyone stays silent

Until now I’m waiting for a response, I think the development of the CIS is very slow. :frowning_face:

Someone said that cis and xcitium client continues to share the same code base but it seems its not the case as xcitium client has multiple updates almost every week/month.

I cant see a way of sharing the same codebase when one has multiple updates and the other has nothing for almost 4 years.

If any dev could share some insights on this subject would be nice…

It does seem puzzling how cis and xcitium client could share the same code base given the disparity in update frequencies. Xcitium’s frequent updates suggest an active development process, whereas cis hasn’t seen updates for nearly four years. Insights from a developer would indeed be helpful to understand whether there’s a divergence in their codebases or perhaps different development strategies at play.
