New Features and Enhancements   (SAFE Version 2.2.29) 

Release Date: 29th June 2022

1. New Company Profile

We are introducing a new Company Profile page (under Administration > Company Management) with additional fields and questions that help SAFE understand the company's inherent risk profile. SAFE utilizes these company characteristics for a tailored estimation of breach likelihood and financial impact.

Company Profile - RN

The following new fields and questions have been added:

  • Employee Count
  • Revenue (in USD millions)
  • The annual number of customers for which Personal Financial Information (PFI) is processed/storedEnhancements in bulk Asset Upload.
  • The annual number of customers for which Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is processed/stored.
  • The annual number of customers for which Payment Card Information (PCI) is processed/stored.
  • The annual number of customers for which Protected Health Information (PHI) is processed/stored.
  • If the company experienced a ransomware attack in the past 3 years?
  • If the company experienced a data breach attack in the past 5 years?
  • After upgrading to SAFE v2.2.29, we recommend that customers fill in the values for newly added fields and answers to the questions.
  • Industry categories have been revised and updated as per NAICS 2022. We recommend you to select a relevant industry category from the drop-down list.
Currently, the newly added fields and questions do not impact the SAFE Score of the organization.

2. Match Any option while creating Asset Groups using multiple criteria

SAFE allows you to create an asset group using multiple criteria. In this release, we have added a new option "Match Any" to apply the selected criteria. Now users have two options Match All and Match Any that provide more flexibility to users while creating asset groups using multiple criteria.

  • Match All: Upon selecting the Match All option, the system adds the assets to the asset group if the assets fall under each of the selected criteria.
  • Match Any: Upon selecting the Match Any option, the system adds the assets to the asset group if the assets fall under any of the selected criteria.

3. Miscellaneous

  • Enhancements to bulk asset upload via CSV: 
    • While uploading assets in bulk via CSV, now SAFE allows a maximum of 2000 assets per upload file.
    • The asset upload CSV file now only allows a maximum of 30 custom fields. If you have more than 30 customer fields, the downloaded template includes only the first 30 custom fields arranged alphabetically. However, the system allows you to replace the unused custom fields from the first 30 with the custom fields you want to use.

  • Enhancements to Azure Integration: 
    • Now, SAFE also onboards those Azure subscriptions that do not have any recommendations, under the Cloud - Azure vertical. All controls for such subscriptions will be marked as "Not Applicable".
    • When a user deletes any confirmed Azure subscription in SAFE, the delete and initiate sync option will be disabled on the SAFE UI until all assets of that subscription are retired from SAFE.
  • We have removed the column titled "Deleted" from the Asset Onboarding Statistics section on the Inside-out technology dashboard.

Release Date: 15th June 2022

1. Enhancements in Qualys Integration

SAFE - Qualys integration allows you to fetch the VA scan results from Qualys to SAFE. We have further enhanced this integration to add the following capabilities:

1.1. Configure the Qualys Asset Tag IDs to use as a filter for VA results pull

The enhancements allow users to specify Qualys Asset Tag IDs as filters for pulling selective assets and their related VA results from Qualys. 


1.2. Common identifier for Assets between SAFE and Qualys (Advance feature available only via APIs)

SAFE allows the user to specify the assetMatchingCriteria to customize the common identifiers between SAFE Assets and Qualys Assets so that the VA results get tagged to the correct asset in SAFE every time a Qualys VA sync is performed.

Refer to Qualys Integration Guide for more details.

2. Enhancements in Technology

2.1. Asset List Table

SAFE allows you to set the Scan Time for assets in bulk from the Asset list table on the Assets page under technology. You can also delete the scan time in bulk for assets from the asset list page.
