New Features and Enhancements

Bitlocker Key Retrieval from ConfigMgr

Right Click Tools Enterprise users have access to BitLocker related functions including a dashboard to track compliance, the ability to encrypt/decrypt drives, and encryption information. With this release BitLocker recovery keys can now be retrieved from ConfigMgr with our new Right Click Tool.  

Web Dashboard Enhancements

The Recast Management Server is a centralized hub for all things Recast. From here, admins have access to web versions of our dashboards. This update sees some changes to our web-based version of the BitLocker Compliance Dashboard. These include the charts and legends only displaying categories that contain at least one device as well as tabs now showing the number of devices rather than a percentage. 

Content Distribution Monitor Improvements

The Content Distribution Monitor Dashboard enables Enterprise users to stay on top of all their deployed content as well as their distribution points. This update sees some usability improvements to this dashboard. Notably, distribution point bar charts are now sorted alphabetically, which should make things easier to find.

Reimport of Applications

Application Manager is our third-party application management and patching solution. With this release users no longer must wait for an updated version of an application to be uploaded for it to be deployed after it has been deleted.  

Bug Fix Highlights Across All Tools:

  • Within the TLS Reports in Endpoint Insights, a bug has been fixed that would result in an incorrect TLS version in charts when drilling down.  
  • With the Recast Agent, we have added missing agent versions after upgrading from v5.3.2311 to v5.3.2312 as well as fixing an issue where the Recast Agent Service would incorrectly establish multiple connections to the Agent Gateway.  
  • In Endpoint Insights, an issue was addressed in the Overall Missing Software Update Status by Classification report that caused some information missing for the Unknown Computers classification.
