It is already December in the blink of an eye.

Looking back, 2022 was eventful and we broke barriers and reached significant milestones. Here is a round-up of landmark moments that made our heart swell with pride.

Crystal Eye XDR Update

The Beta testing team is hard at work putting the finishing touches on the first release of Crystal Eye OS 4.5.

As there is so much to test and with some feedback to the Developer team, we are aiming for a release in December or January to make sure that we have Crystal Eye OS running the way we intended.

Some of the big features coming include: 

  • A revised Threat Hunt Dashboard that allows correlation between applications and a snapshot covering a moment in time to assist with investigations. 
  • Improvements to the Network Map Application that include a summary of devices, updated visual display of devices on the network and allow you to map devices directly from within the Network Map application. 
  • Policy Based Routing of traffic. 
  • Passive Encryption Controls. 
  • Azure AD authentication. 
  • Updates to the Vulnerability Scanning Application. 
  • Improved communications to the Red Piranha SOC. 

There are also new posts in the Forum, covering a known issue regarding SSLVPN Server naming and a statement regarding the OpenSSL Security Advisory.

Service Spotlight: Reduce Threat Exposure using
Integrated Risk Management


Red Piranha’s eCISO® program delivers rapid deployment of Cybersecurity Risk Management in tandem with asset discovery, threat intelligence, vulnerability scanning, and incident response. Deployment of the Crystal Eye appliance onto your network will immediately initiate a risk-based program through the profiling of scanned or ingested assets.

Extending the eCISO® service is our tailored approach to developing maturity and compliance capabilities. We work closely to clarify gaps across a broad range of industry frameworks.

With this human-machine teaming in place, our clients can achieve near real-time risk identification as and when threats emerge. With truly integrated threat intelligence and vulnerability scanning, any sudden changes to a company’s security posture can be remediated as a priority. Stop accepting risk due to critical flaws in commonly used software. With our leading-edge Unified Threat Management, zero-day attacks can be mitigated proactively. This includes leveraging our advisory services to assess third-party and supply chain risks prior to exposure.

The importance of becoming complaint with security frameworks through risk programs was discussed in the Australian Financial Review back in January and pre-empts the need for action due to recent high profile breaches. The article also highlighted how the Defence Industry Security Program (DISP) requires defence suppliers to demonstrate exactly how they integrate with vendors and partners in order to secure the Defence supply chain and continue doing business.

Detailed attention to the dynamic risk that cybersecurity will continue to introduce, is why businesses of all sizes should already be investing in Integrated Risk Management. Get complaint, transition into an eCISO® program.
