  • Added: Support for "proxy fallback" communication, in case when configured proxy server is not reachable (for all ERA components)
  • Added: Turkish and Greek localizations
  • Changed: The ERA Virtual Appliance now contains a functional CentOS 7 operating system and has added the Webmin interface to perform many server management options
  • Changed: “Device enrollment” task removed from Client tasks
  • Improved: Agent deployment process allows you to deploy ERA Agent and ESET Endpoint at the same time by creating All-in-one installer for the Agent and Endpoints, or generating scripts for GPO/SCCM deployment (.ini files)
  • Improved: License Management screen and license selection options with improved filtering and license identification for License Key, Offline File and Security Admin license types
  • Improved: Policies are now grouped by product with expanding/collapsing policy categories
  • Improved: Mobile Device Enrollment no longer requires IMEI to whitelist devices and now there are two enrollment options, mass enrollment using email and single device enrollment

  • Improved: SMTP setting now allows a different recipient email from the sender email when sending the test email
  • Improved: Added more sections and topics to Online Help
  • Fixed: Known issue when Server and Proxy cannot be started in Linux failover cluster. Issue is caused by incorrect cluster scripts shipped with the setup scripts. It can be worked around by manually replacing the cluster scripts with fixed versions (after install/upgrade). Even if the fixed cluster scripts are used, ERA Server and Proxy are not protected with SELinux policies in Linux cluster. In addition there is a minor bug in the Agent SELinux policy which makes impossible for the Agent to discover Server on the cluster nodes.
  • Fixed: The wipe function doesn't work on iOS devices. As a workaround, use Client Task called Anti-Theft Actions and choose Enhanced factory reset option in Settings. This will wipe an iOS device despite the fact there isn't an apple icon indicating it can be run on iOS devices.
  • Fixed: There is a spelling mistake in License Manager section of ESET Remote Administrator Web Console, where word "Business" appended to each license is misspelled as "Bussiness"
  • Fixed: Other minor fixes and improvements
