2022 has seen some hard work and extended deadlines for the Crystal Eye OS 4.5 update due to the sheer size of the number of improvements and features to be included in the next release.
Our development team has increased in size to help deal with this additional workload and we have revised our testing processes. While this has had an impact on the release date, it also allows for a larger, high-quality update ahead of our 5.0 release pitched for late 2023.
The 4.5 update will also usher in the next update to our online manual (https://manual.redpiranha.net) with support for multiple versions, improved search capabilities and a revised look and feel. More features will be added to the manual over 2023 as the new platform is honed over the next 12 months. Keep looking for more in-depth documents as we take a deep dive into the big topics around Cybersecurity.
Making a fresh start in 2023 has given the team a chance to refocus and present the following roadmap estimate for our software and hardware that makes the Crystal Eye Appliance.
Q1 2023: Release of Crystal Eye OS 4.5
Q2 2023: Release of Intel 12th GEN hardware platform
Q4 2023: Release of Crystal Eye OS 5.0
Q1 2024: Release of 13th GEN hardware platform.
The hardware platform updates planned with 13th GEN support will represent a significant increase in performance across the board as we see the refined versions of the new generation hardware made available to the market.
This is not all that we are working on. Look out for products like Auto Phishing, Crystal Eye Security Operations Centre (CESOC), Crystal Eye Attack Surface Reduction (CEASR), our own SSLVPN and Wireguard endpoint applications and the Crystal Eye Endpoint Application to extend our detection and response capabilities right out to the individual device and application.
The product team has had a chance to rest and regroup and we are keen to deliver the next chapter of technologies that will bring consolidated security toolsets to partners and end clients alike to meet the cybersecurity challenge head-on with Red Piranha by their side.
