New Features for CIS-CAT Pro Dashboard 1.1.4

Installation and Upgrade Tool: This release includes a step-by-step embedded tool for Linux/Unix and Windows users for the install/upgrade of CIS-CAT Pro Dashboard. It replaces some of the manual steps required to complete an installation. The new tool walks members through the automatic creation of the dashboard configuration file. Which reduces the risk of manual data entry and file formatting errors. Use the new installer to pre-load existing dashboard configuration settings or let the installer create it for you!

Graphs Viewable With or Without Internet Connectivity: Is your CIS-CAT Pro application server required to be off-line? With supporting graph libraries now included with the dashboard application, CIS-CAT Pro Dashboard no longer requires an external internet connection to display the assessment results graphically. CIS-CAT Pro Dashboard can now display assessment results in a graph whether your application server is on- or off-line. Configure the height and width of the graphs using System Settings.
