PatrolServer 1.0.2

Posted on

At PatrolServer, we aim for continued innovation. Today I’m pleased to announce that, with the release of PatrolServer 1.0.2, we’re a step closer to our goal. No server should be left with outdated software.

Past month has been incredible for us here at PatrolServer. We’re a little over one month in public beta, and the response from you all has been overwhelming! As most have noticed, we took the time to listen to you all and implemented the most requested features. We enjoyed all of your participation and feedback! Keep it coming. Together, we can make PatrolServer even greater.

Get a quick overview of all your server statuses

For those who have a large amount of servers in their list, it can get messy to get a quick overview of those who are vulnerable. We implemented a red dot indicator to note the user that this particular server is not safe. This small change required us to work on performance. You’ll see the benefits in better performance!

We now support cPanel

cPanel is a web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a website. We updated our scanner and now check for cPanel. If your instance becomes outdated, it will also be shown in the solutions list of your server (together with a nice guide on how to update your cPanel instance).

Revamped the pricing page and implemented payments

For those who want a little more, we now fully support payments through Stripe. Our pricing page is now much more clear, and you’ll know perfectly what you get. Check it out at https://patrolserver.com/pricing.

Quick note: Every current user will keep his servers added in our beta period, completely free!

Improved security measurements

By now, it’s pretty clear we give a large priority to security. The sign-in process is now throttled, this means when someone enters wrong credentials several times, that particular user won’t be able to login for some time afterwards. This is mainly another step to guarantee the safety of our users.

As always, keep your feedback coming. We absolutely love it!

Cheers,
The PatrolServer team.
