Superseding patches

Microsoft is known to release patches that supersedes older patches which are targeted to address a vulnerability. When new releases from Microsoft are published it is important to understand which this is when looking to remediate a vulnerability. 

For Microsoft vulnerabilities that have patch information we are now exposing superseding information that will allow you to see the latest patches available together with a list of the older items it supersedes.

Temporary ignoring a vulnerability

You might not want to permanently ignoring a vulnerability. Now it is possible to also set an expiration date and time when ignoring a vulnerability. The vulnerability will temporary be ignored until the expiration time is reached, then it automatically will be un-ignored (active) again.

Activity log available from platform API

Activity log is showing actions that are happening within Security Center and provides great visibility for audits. The activity log for your account is now available using the platform API, making it easy to integrate with 3rd party solutions, such as SIEM or SoC solutions. This enables you track all actions from Security Center within these other systems.
