  • Support for Agent Control Policies created in the management portal. Allowing policy control of Wifi-Protection, connect on boot, and the ability to control whether the end-user is able to disconnect inside the Agent.

Bug Fixes

  • The connection counters and the graph would get stuck at "0" on Windows systems when waking from "hibernation" or S4 sleep states. Agent connectivity was unaffected by this graphical bug.

Known Issues

  • On Windows system, this version (2.1.0) must be installed over any previous version using an RMM or with the .msi package directly. Initiating an upgrade to this version from the ControlOne management portal will not work from any previous version.

  • Improved responsiveness, energy efficiency, CPU + memory utilization on Windows and macOS.
  • The Agent now reacts to controller messages in a fraction of the time, such as when a device is quarantined because of a device posture failure, or when a user's Zone assignment is changed by an admin.

  • The connection status byte counters now display the rate (not volume) of data securely sent and received by the Agent through the ControlOne platform.

  • Added automatic log rotation.

Bug Fixes

  • The Agent would use more CPU than necessary while failing Device Posture Check or when the system was unable to reach the ControlOne platform.
  • The tray GUI could be running without a system tray icon or a main window, on Windows.
  • The tray GUI would sometimes appear in the task bar on Windows.
  • When Windows "hotspot mode" was enabled, the Agent's connectivity and guests of the hotspot would be unable to pass traffic.
  • The tray GUI was not auto launching when installed an AD joined system, or would not launch when logging into Windows with cached Azure credentials.
  • A new ControlOne virtual adapter was being created more often than necessary on Windows.
  • A login startup item would appear in macOS System Preferences application as an unsigned binary called "open" in macOS Ventura (13.x).

  • Local gateway IP would blank out on the diagnostic panel for macOS.

Known Issues

  • Some WSL2 applications are unable to pass traffic when using the Agent.
  • The username may disappear from the bottom of main panel when upgrading versions on macOS. Agent connectivity is unaffected by this graphical bug.

 

ControlOne Agent 1.3.14.4

November 9, 2022

Bug Fixes

  • Client devices were sometimes deemed "Non-Complaint" with a Device Posture Policy when policy requirements did not apply to the specific device by platform.
  • The Agent would be connected to the Quarantine Zone in some cases, even when the client device was passing the policy check.
  • The Agent background service would not always check that the tray GUI was able to sync at system start.

ControlOne Agent 1.3.13.1

September 29, 2022

September 9, 2022

What's New

  • When an update is available, the Agent can now queue a download for the update package, to be performed the next time internet connectivity is detected.

Bug Fixes
