New Releases 4.0.8 of SOLVE and NorthStar


New Domain

As we expand our marketing, we’ve renamed our domain to http://poweredbynorthstar.com. We are excited about some of the new products we will be debuting on the platform and thought it was time to highlight the platform itself.

New Releases of SOLVE and NorthStar

The newest release of SOLVE and NorthStar are now available for download.  Since it’s been a while since we’ve sent out this notification, we decided to include the features from the 4.0.6 through the current version 4.0.8

One of the features we’re most excited about is the ability to natively integrate with Tanium to import asset and/or patching data into NorthStar.  We’ve made this as simple as mapping a database table or a flat file. You asked for Tanium integration and we heard you loud and clear!
