#infosec Moving #Syspeace licenses between servers

The Syspeace licensing model is a flexible and easy to use model.

The license you used for the free trial is automatically converted into a live a license when you purhase a license. You don’t need to reconfigure.

You decide for youself if you want use Syspeace for a year at a time or for example 2 months and on how many servers you want to divide the number of computerdays.

You can use the same licensenumber on multiple servers and the central licensing server keeps track of licensing for you and you can easily extend you existing license.

If you need to move the license from one server to another, simply start the Syspeace GUI, find the reset license button and reset. Install Syspeace on the new server and you’re good to go.
Another way is to simply stop the Syspeace service on the old server and install on the new server, using the same licensenumber.

All updates and new, generic detectors are free to download for valid licensesowners and trialusers.

If you’re hosting servers or have many servers the easiest approach is probably to have one Syspeace account and use the same license for all servers but if you’re managing multiple external servers you’d probably want to have a separate Syspeace account for each customer for instance ACME @ YourCompany.
This way you’ll easily keep track of the administrative part with your invoicing.

New Syspeace 1.1.30 with brand new analysis feature released

Hi, Everyone.
As always we are trying to come up with new ideas and implement stuff we’ve had in our roadmap for a long time now.

Today we’ve released a new version of Syspeace with a few new features.

The major news is that there’s now a new feature in the Attack Control Section for further analysis.

The analysis section enables you to create reports on specific IP addresses, usernames or domain or do the reversed, i.e. find out all of the ones who are NOT a specific IP address, domain or username. Or sort out the ones with successful logins or only the ones with failed logins.

As a side note , we’re also happy to tell you that we’ve so far, since July 15th, have helped you guys block 73 000 + brute force attempts, gathered them, classified them, added some of them to the GBL that we introduced in 1.1.10 and thus helped you to be preemptively defended by getting this distrubited to all of the other Syspeace installations around the world.

ABOUT OLDER VERSIONS

Those of you still running an older version (prior to  1.20) we would highly recommend you had a look at the newer versions and the stuff we’ve put in there.

Here’s a list of what we’ve been up to so far:

Date Version Updates
19/9 1.1.30 Upgraded the Attack control: improved search and added analysis of login statistics.
11/9 1.1.23 Fixed bug where new installations would have problems with the reporting feature.
10/9 1.1.22 Updated registration process in GUI.
4/9 1.1.21 Fixed e-mail bug.
3/9 1.1.20 Added daily and weekly reporting.
7/8 1.1.10 Added global blacklist.
29/7 1.1.5 Fixed SMTP to work with Gmail.
15/7 1.1.0 First version! Basic functionality for securing a server from unauthorized login-attempts.

To download the newest version for trial or purchas pleas visit Syspeace download page

As we’ve stated earlier, the older version will run until 2012-12-31 but maybe you would be interested in the new features we’ve added?

For anyone running 1.20 + we’d highly recommend upgrading if you have the possibility and since we’ve also taken care some minor bugs in the Global Black list function.

 

ABOUT THE FUTURE OF SYSPEACE AND OUR ROADMAP

Our roadmap for the nearest future is to start looking more closely into a Windows 2003 version since it’s been frequently asked by you guys.

While on the subject of our roadmap!

We’ve decided to start using Uservoice to gather you inputs, ideas and feature requests.

You’re all welcome to join us and share your ideas  in there.

The ones that gets the highest rating and scores will of course get a faster pace in our roadmap since our goal is to make Syspeace something that helps everyone to make their everyday Windows server administration easier and more secure

Have a look at the Uservoice site at http://syspeace.uservoice.com

Of course, you’re always welcome to mail us also as you’ve done before. We’re here and we love getting your feedback.

 

Thanks for taking the time to read this and have a peaceful, brute force-free day!

 Cheers
Juha Jurvanen & The Syspeace team
