Syspeace 2.5.0 introduces the new Detector Provider API for developing “detectors” that plug into Syspeace and can listen for login attempts in additional places. For more information, see the Syspeace Detector SDK.
Alongside Syspeace 2.5.0, the Syspeace reseller model has been improved for both customers and resellers.
Syspeace 2.5.0 also includes new functionality to export and import settings to cut down on configuration time and the ability to put Syspeace in a “dry run” mode by temporarily disabling blocking (useful for diagnostics or what-if scenarios).
With the new reseller model, customers are free to buy licenses from the reseller of their choice, or directly from Syspeace. Customers no longer have to pick a reseller at the time of registration and are free to choose a reseller in their own time. Customers can also buy licenses from different resellers at any time or even have licenses from different resellers active simultaneously.
Resellers are also better served. Every reseller gets access to a discounted version of the same price ladder that provides progressively improving rates with volume for every Syspeace customer. New resellers can enroll directly with Syspeace and do not have to partner with a distribution agent.
For the first time, companies that manage or provide IT services to their clients can follow the same model and get the same benefits as resellers.
They may maintain separate client accounts and still get both the reseller rates and the progressively lower rates Syspeace has always offered.
The new reseller model goes into effect immediately. Existing reseller customers can continue using their licenses and may now also buy licenses from any reseller or directly from Syspeace. Customers do not have to update to the latest version of Syspeace.
We welcome our first new resellers, Italian reseller Web4People and UK reseller Hippo IT Management. They are joined by existing resellers JufCorp (serving the Swedish market) and TSYN (serving the Middle Eastern markets). For more information, see the Syspeace Reseller site. More new resellers will be introduced in the coming weeks.
Documents describing how to become a reseller are available on the Syspeace Reseller site.
The IIS FTP detector and FileZilla Server detectors are the first of our detectors developed and released using our Syspeace Detector Provider APIs. With these detectors installed, Syspeace can react to failed and successful login attempts from the IIS FTP server (for IIS 7.0 and above) and the FileZilla FTP/SFTP Server.
If you have an IIS FTP server or FileZilla Server and are interested in beta testing, contact us.
System requirements for the IIS FTP detector
- Syspeace 2.5.2
- IIS 7.0 and higher
- Logging enabled
System requirements for the FileZilla FTP/SFTP Server detector
- Syspeace 2.5.2
- FileZilla Server 0.9.0 or higher
- Logging enabled
Syspeace 2.4.1 fixes an issue where IP addresses can be mixed up (the IP address is taken from another row) in tables in logs in the administrative interface. In addition, the interface for editing the local blacklist and whitelist has been improved to allow selecting and deleting multiple entries.
Syspeace 2.4.0 is now available and contains the successor to the “Attack control” panel – the new “Access log” panel – and quick actions like “Add to local blacklist” for IP addresses in many places across the user interface; both very common requests.
This release is an architectural release, paving the way for future features, optimizing many steps in the detection and blocking pipeline as well as minimizing the footprint of the local databases.
