InterMapper Updated With Improved Security

Dartware, LLC has released an update for InterMapper, bringing it to version 4.1.2. InterMapper is a network monitor designed for the checking and alerting of network service levels. The update features several enhancements improved security. According to Dartware:

Dartware LLC, a provider of cross-platform network monitoring products that help customers maximize network uptime, today announced InterMapper 4.1.2, an upgrade designed specifically to address customer requests. Chief among the enhancements is the ability to use graphic images to customize the icons shown on network maps.

InterMapper users can now use PNG or JPEG files (including vendor logos) for devices on their maps, giving a better representation of the equipment that is present on the network. InterMapperautomatically tints these icons to show the health of the network element with a yellow, orange or red background (as appropriate).

In addition to the custom icon improvements, Dartware has included the following enhancements in InterMapper 4.1.2:

  • Improved security measures: InterMapper can use SSL to encrypt connections from InterMapper Remote to ensure that network information passed among various copies of InterMapper will not be intercepted
  • Bug fixes: Previous problems relating to the display of Host Resources Probe, XML escaping, Solaris ping timings, Red Hat and Solaris installers, window positioning on multiple monitors and others have all been addressed
