Background threat detection on-demand scan
Administrators can now initiate a background threat detection scan on demand from the management console. The command can be sent from the Device Details screen for an individual device, or for multiple devices at once from the Devices screen.
The date of the last scan for each device is logged in the management console.
When manually downloading and installing the latest
Linux
driver, select the latest driver version from the
Cylance
console to ensure support for the latest kernel update. The latest driver (which is 3.2.1100 currently) is frequently updated with cumulative kernel support and is compatible with

Custom interval for background threat detection scanning
Administrators can now set a custom interval to run background threat detection scanning from the device policy. The scan interval can be set between 1 and 90 days. The default scan interval is 10 days. Note that increasing the frequency of the scans may impact the device performance. The scan may also be manually started from the command line.
The date of the last scan for each device is logged in the management console. 
Auto-update
Linux
Driver
The
CylancePROTECT Desktop
agent 3.1.1000 for
Linux
devices can now request an update to the latest supported agent driver when an updated kernel is detected on the system. For example, if the
Linux
kernel is updated and the current installed agent driver does not support it, the agent can now automatically update the driver as soon as a compatible driver is released. This feature requires
CylancePROTECT Desktop
agent version 3.1.1000 and the agent driver version 3.1.1000 or later.
To enable this feature, select the
Auto-update Linux Driver
option in the zone-based update rule from the
Settings > Update
menu in the management console.

What's new in the
Linux
driver version 3.1.1100

The
CylancePROTECT
3.1.1100 driver package is now available for
Linux
endpoints, in advance of an upcoming release of the 3.1 agent. It includes the latest drivers to support the latest OS kernels and is compatible with devices running agent version 2.1.1590 or later.  When the driver is used together with the upcoming release of the 3.1 agent, administrators can allow the
Linux
driver to be automatically updated to support the latest OS kernels.  Updating to the latest
Linux
driver makes sure that
CylancePROTECT
continues to run as expected while you receive important OS kernel updates.

What's new in the
Linux
agent version 3.0.1005

Bug fixes only.
If you installed the
CylancePROTECT
3.0.1101 or 3.0.1100 driver package for
Linux
endpoints running the 3.0.1001, 3.0.1000, or 2.1.1590 agents, the drivers are not automatically updated to 3.0.1105 (which includes bug fixes) when the 3.0.1005 agent is deployed from the console or upgraded locally. To update the drivers on endpoints that have the 3.0.1101 or 3.0.1100 driver package installed, manually upgrade to the 3.0.1105 driver package that is available in the
Cylance Endpoint Security
management console.
