WinSyslog 12.0 Released

Adiscon is proud to announce the 12.0 release of WinSyslog.

This new major release adds full support for Windows 8 and Windows 2012.

For OEMs, the integration capabilities have been enhanced. So it now is possible to use customized service names and registry keys. This permits seamless integration into turnkey solutions. Also, for ultra-secure envrionments, this permits increased security hardening as an attacker needs to guess the actual service name if it was custom-set.

Also, the “overrun protection delay” preciseness has been enhanced, providing even finer-grain control over how fast syslog messages are emitted. This can be very important for UDP-only based receivers, which need to receive data at a high rate, but slow enough so that no packet loss occurs.

Increased SSL security by updated the Core Engine to the latest OpenSSL library 1.0.1e.

Detailed information can be found in the version history.
