We are pleased to announce that Thursday, August 25, the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) product will be releasing a new agent for Windows. The Windows agent will see an update to 22.1 SP1 (220.127.116.1110). We strongly recommend upgrading as soon as possible to provide the maximum level of protection available.
New and improved in Windows 22.1 SP1 (18.104.22.16810):
In Windows Agent version 22.1 SP1 SentinelOne introduced a significant step towards Rebootless Agent installation. In 22.1 SP1 most Agent functionality is operational after installation, even if you do not reboot the endpoint. This includes Static detection, all Agent actions, and all response functions.
The main capability that continues to require a reboot is Behavioral AI detection and mitigation. This is planned to be supported in a future version.
For full details on Rebootless Installation please see the Release Notes linked below
Automatic Recovery from Agent Database Errors
Introducing the new database corruption auto-recovery mode. The Agent automatically recovers from database errors and major Agent functionalities are enabled except for Behavioral AI detection.
Graceful Termination for MSI Installer
If you set automation for an installation or upgrade policy with the Windows Agent MSI installer package, the installation or upgrade ends with a return code for success or failure.
If the action ended in failure, the MSI installer ends gracefully. It removes added files and reverts changes to the endpoint. On an installation failure, the MSI installer leaves a clean endpoint.
Public Cloud Metadata Reporting
The Management Console shows cloud metadata when the Agent is installed on Windows Servers running on cloud providers AWS, Azure, or GCP. This data is in the Endpoints page and in the Endpoint Details window.
