Traverse Updates

December 05, 2022

Year in Review

For Traverse, 2022 was a strong year of innovation, with five new features, three updates to the UI/UX and four enhancements to integrations. Here, we’ll briefly cover Traverse’s new innovations and integrations. For a deeper dive into any of these enhancements, please check out the Traverse Release Notes.

New Features

Test Discovery/Parameter Rediscovery

Traverse release 9.6.6 introduced AES 256 and Cisco 256 support to expedite test discovery and improve security protocols. With the following release, we introduced support for both Discovery and Monitoring for SNMP v3 to support the most common use cases for authentication and privacy protocols.

IT Complete and KaseyaOne

A strong focus for Traverse in 2022 was integrating and modernizing the UI/UX to match the rest of the IT Complete platform. In Release 9.6.8, we updated the login experience to follow IT Complete and support single sign-on. Two releases later, we introduced the Cooper Intelligence Engine to surface AI-enabled suggestions to help our customers get the most out of Traverse.


Release 9.6.13 introduced “superusers” — a new security model. Superusers can switch on/off the “user representation” feature for all user groups.


BMS Integration

Across 2022, we made several enhancements to the BMS and Traverse integration, including improved performance and a significantly upgraded setup experience that ports Traverse Department mappings to BMS Accounts.

New Features

Cloud Monitoring: Azure Cloud Services Discovery and Monitoring

In this release, we added the ability to discover and monitor the Azure Cloud Services instances and tests.

You can monitor the following if your Azure user subscription supports Microsoft Classic Compute resource provider:

  • Cloud services (CPU percentage​, network in/out​, Disk read/write bytes/operations​)
  • SQL instances (CPU percentage​, data IO percentage​, storage usage percentage​, successful connections​, failed connections​, DTU percentage​)
  • Virtual machines (CPU credits consumed​, CPU percentage​, network in/out​, disk read/write bytes/operations​)
  • Load balancers (total Bytes​, health probe status​, packets count​, SYN count​, data path availability).

If not, SQL instances/virtual machines/load balancers will be discovered.

Note: To enable the new Azure monitoring feature, you must update your Traverse license. To obtain the required license update, please submit a request to technical support and update the license after the version upgrade.

For more information, see the Cloud Discovery topic.

Security Vulnerability: Account Lockout

In this release, we added account lockout for users to enhance security. Traverse users will be locked out for 60 seconds (by default) after 5 failed attempts to log in with invalid credentials or using invalid multi-factor authentication (MFA) codes. You can configure the number of failed attempts and lockout time in the Configuration of Login Attempts section.


Database Backend
