NXLog Enterprise Edition version 5.1 Release Announcement

Release Announcement

We are proud to announce the first minor release in the new major version of NXLog Enterprise Edition.

The release fixes a number of bugs and issues, but more importantly, we are expanding the capabilities of our new passive network monitoring module with additional protocol phrasers focusing on Indrustrial Control Systems. NXLog Enterprise Edition now supports passive network monitoring on Windows systems in addition to Linux and macOS, allowing greater visibility into what is happening on the network. Combined with the added support for industrial control protocols such as BacNet, Profinet and Modbus, the NXLog Enterprise Edition gives capabilities for hardening your security further.

  • Added protocol parser for BACNET
  • Improved handling of complex data in MODBUS packets
  • Added protocol parser for PROFINET
  • Packaged im_pcap - the passive network monitor module for Windows
  • Started shipping individually signed packages on Debian

This release opens the door for exploring NXLog Enterprise's Edition's monitoring features in industrial environments.

If you have feedback, would like to see additional improvements in this area, reach out to us.
