New Features


Wipe multiple devices in one session

Multiple devices can be inserted at the wipe option selection screen for the wipe to be performed on all devices

Warning message is displayed if a file is not processed by MetaDefender

A warning message is displayed before the session results screen if any file is not processed by MetaDefender



Backup server selection when the primary MetaDefender instance is unable to process files

The decision to use a backup MetaDefender server has been enhanced to ensure a primary MetaDefender instance is not used when it is unable to process files.
Any MetaDefender instance that reports problematic issues will be noted on the Mgmt Console and the issue logged in the application log.

syslog message format for TCP

Some syslog messages were missing line breaks which caused parsing issues for some syslog management systems when receiving data over TCP

Enhanced retry mechanism for files that are unable to be opened

Certain files have some permissions that block Kiosk from accessing them to upload the file to MetaDefender for processing.
The ability to retry on these files and allow for successful upload has been enhanced.
This does not apply to locked system files.

Processing an iPhone with iTunes installed

After installing iTunes and then selecting files from an iPhone to process, the selected files would not be processed.
Functionality has been restored.
