April 03, 2015

INSIGHT DLP is pleased to announce the immediate release of IDACT (INSIGHT DLP Appliance Control Tools) version 1.7-4 and 2.0-7. This release provides several bug fixes along with the support of Symantec DLP 12.5.2 on all INSIGHT DLP Appliances.

Users already on 1.7.0 or better can automatically update to the newest release. Users not yet on 1.7.x are encouraged to open a support request to have their INSIGHT DLP Appliances upgraded.

NOTE: This will NOT upgrade your DLP release. This will update the underlying OS and IDACT software. Instructions for updating Symantec DLP on the INSIGHT Appliance are available in the Administration guide for your applicable version. The latest version of these documents are available within the support portal. If you would like assistance with a Symantec DLP upgrade, please contact our professional services division:

The support matrix for the Appliance and Symantec DLP has been updated and posted to the portal. Please check this file before performing any DLP upgrades as an upgrade to an unsupported DLP version may invalidate your support agreement.
