What’s new in Syspeace v4?
Syspeace v4 is a major new release of the Syspeace Intrusion Prevention Solution, rebuilt to support full-fidelity remote management and provide a strong foundation for future features.
Syspeace v4 is available at no upgrade cost to all Syspeace v3 customers. Syspeace licenses are version-agnostic and work for servers using either version.
For information about upgrading from v3 to v4, see the knowledge base article.
|Syspeace v3||Syspeace v4|
|Runs on (Windows)…||Windows Server 2003 and later||Windows Server 2008 R2 and later|
|Runs on (Linux)…||Ubuntu (Syspeace Service only)|
|Remote Management |
Syspeace v3’s Remote Status Console supports viewing a few pieces of information from another computer.
Syspeace Console in v4 replaces the local interface and can do everything remotely, and works even if you do not have line-of-sight to the server directly.
|Works when Windows Firewall is disabled/managed |
Syspeace v3 supports blocking through Windows Firewall or IP Security Policy. If Windows Firewall is disabled or managed by another piece of software, configuration may be required to switch blocking over to IP Security Policy.
Syspeace v4 directly uses the Windows Filtering Platform and is not disabled or ignored when another firewall is in use.
|Blocking rules |
Syspeace v4 supports improved rules that support negative blocking conditions and capable nested logic. A few examples that are not possible in v3:
|Max block duration||14 days||Several years|
|Global Blocklist||20 entries per incremental update||500 entries per incremental update|
|Shared blocks |
With Shared blocks, when activity causes a block based on one of the rules, this block is shared with other Syspeace Services within the account.
|Shared IP lists |
With Shared IP lists, shared blocklists and safelists can be set up within an account.
|Works with Syspeace account|
|Works with Syspeace licenses|
|Supports multiple license groups per Syspeace account|
|Supports multiple users per Syspeace account|
|Integrated manual||Separate PDF file||HTML (viewable in Console as Help)|
