Cisco MARS 6.0.3 Now Available

Cisco have released MARS version 6.0.3

Miscellaneous Changes and Enhancements

The following changes and enhancements exist in :

Credential Automation—Save administrative time by updating many Cisco device credentials in a single operation rather than touching each device definition in MARS. Using a seed file to re-import devices that are already defined in MARS, users can update some credentials for Cisco ASA, Cisco PIX, Cisco IPS, Cisco IOS, and Cisco Switch devices.

Actionable Incident Notification—This enhancement helps customers decide on the importance of a notification without having to log into MARS. The MARS syslog, e-mail, and SNMP incident notification messages provide incident summary information as well as Top 3 reports. The incident summary will include the rule ID, rule name, incident ID, incident start/end time and incident severity. Top 3 reports include Top 3 destination ports, Top 3 reporting devices, and Top 3 event types.

Improved Reporting Response Times—This enhancement improves response times of commonly used reports by retrieving event data from memory rather than from the database.

Exported/Archived Configuration Validation— This enhancement ensures that you do not attempt to restore or upgrade a system using a corrupted configuration file. After exporting or archiving a configuration file, MARS scans the file to make sure it is not corrupted.

New Device Support

The 6.0.3 release of MARS supports the following new device versions:

Cisco IPS 6.2 (backward compatible mode)
