  • Enhancement: Adds support for sending Audit and System Logs to Microsoft Teams. This introduces an update to the Alert Profile by adding MicrosoftTeams as a new destination.
  • Enhancement: Adds support for sending Gateway metrics to 3rd-party SIEMs. This introduces a new Metrics Forwarding Profile that can be configured and assigned to Gateways in order for Gateway metrics to be sent to the SIEM. The first implementation supports Datadog as a SIEM. Support for other SIEMs will follow in future releases.

  • Fix: Fixes an issue where changing a Gateway setting that would be applied immediately could trigger an unnecessary blue/green Gateway replacement due to a perceived change to use public IPs setting
  • Fix: Fixes an issue where attempting to change a Gateway in AWS from an invalid cross-account CMEK to a valid same-account CMEK would fail
  • Fix: Fixes various issues with the time range selector in Investigate views when viewing Traffic Summary Logs, Security Events, System Logs and Audit Logs
  • Fix: Fixes an issue where active links from Policy Rule Set to Gateway page to various resource pages associated with the Policy Rule Set were not working properly
  • Fix: Fixes an issue with Terraform Export for Valtix Alert Rule Profile was not exporting the severity argument
  • Fix: Updates the default instance type for an Azure Gateway to be AZURE_D2S_V5
  • Fix: Fixes various workflow issues when configuring security and non-secure proxies. These fixes require the user to explicitly specify the desired ports rather than the solution automatically selecting common ports.
  • Fix: Fixes an issue to improve the workflow for proxy configuration by validating that a Decryption Profile is specified when a user configures a security proxy. The Decryption Profile is required for the Gateway to issue the proper certificate.
  • Fix: Fixes an issue where a JSON error message would occur when creating a Gateway using the UI workflow
  • Fix: Fixes various UI-related behaviors to improve usability
  • Fix: Fixes an issue where a Gateway deployment would take longer than expected

  • Fix: Fixes an issue where deploying Gateways in Azure without public IPs would fail
  • Fix: Enhances various error messages for clarity and to reduce ambiguity
