Ivanti Cloud Service Appliance (CSA) 4.6
Ivanti Cloud Service Appliance (CSA) 4.6 is now available for customers to download. Like our previous CSA 4.5 release, this CSA 4.6 release addresses the situation where CentOS has announced an EOL (or change) to the CentOS 8 operating system that we are using. As a result of this, we have adjusted and built CSA 4.6 on CentOS 7, which should provide us with a stable OS platform into the future.
Ivanti Cloud Service Appliance 4.6 is available now – here!
Benefits of Upgrading
CSA 4.6 includes important security and stability fixes that customers will benefit from (see the links below). Additionally, we will no longer be providing updates to CSA 4.5. By customers updating to CSA 4.6 they will ensure their ability to receive CSA patches and updates going forward, minimizing disruptions to their business.
