Corporate Software Inspector 2016 R9 (Cloud Edition)
Flexera’s Corporate Software Inspector is a Vulnerability and Patch Management Software Solution that completes and targets the Patch Management process. It combines Vulnerability Intelligence, Vulnerability Scanning, and Patch Creation with Patch Deployment Tool Integration to enable targeted, reliable, and cost-efficient Patch Management.
Vulnerability and Patch Management are critical components of any security infrastructure because it enables proactive detection and remediation of vulnerabilities before they are actively exploited and your security compromised. With Corporate Software Inspector, IT Operations and Security Teams are empowered to take control of the Vulnerability Threat from both Microsoft and non-Microsoft (third-party) product vulnerabilities, covering Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Corporate Software Inspector scanning technology takes a different approach than other vulnerability scanning solutions by conducting non-intrusive scans to accurately identify all installed products and plugins on the system.
Corporate Software Inspector integrates seamlessly with Microsoft® WSUS and System Center Configuration Manager.

If the Smart Group Daemon is shut down unclean, such as when there is an unscheduled database server shutdown, then the daemon can leave generations in an in-progress state. Previously, the Daemon would reset stuck states after a certain period of time (hours or days). Now when the Smart Group Daemon restarts, it will check for generations that are in the in-progress state within intervals as set by the configuration setting SMARTGROUP_GENERATION_ABANDON_INTERVAL_PER_SMARTGROUP. If the daemon finds such a generation it will reset them, so that they could be processed again (CSIL-6753).
Corporate Software Inspector 2016 R9 (Cloud Edition) has resolved the following issues:

|•||Increased passwords to 40 characters|
|•||Generating reports with empty fields now export as CSV and PDF files|

Digital signature of the Corporate Software Inspector plugin can now be verified when connecting to WSUS
The Corporate Software Inspector plugin has been updated with a digital thumb print for a new digital certificate. Old certificates that are used to sign Flexera binaries will expire on November 10, 2017 (CSIL-8366).
It was discovered that the agent could report the wrong numeric version of the Windows system dll on some versions of Windows. This version value has been corrected (CSIL-8368).
Under Security > Password Recovery Settings passwords for Corporate Software Inspector have been increased to 40 characters (CSIL-8323).
Previously, reports with no data would fail, and the user would not know the cause of such a failure. This logic has been modified to generated empty files in such scenarios (CSIL-8249).
Now when a user enters an invalid password and clicks the Login button, the invalid password is cleared from the password field (CSIL-8327).
