  2. Updated version of Microsoft Skype for Business 2016.
  3. This update adds a business bar notification to let users know that a file contains modern comments that they can’t access (view, add, or edit) in PowerPoint 2013.


  1. A hang or delay issue occurs when you open Word document files with custom XML values that contain many spaces.
  2. Fixes an issue that the peek view in Outlook’s calendar occasionally fails to display.

Keep Your Organization Protected

Syxsense allows you to manage and secure vulnerabilities exposed by open ports, disabled firewalls, ineffective user account policies, and security compliance violations from remote workers.

In this unpredictable time, detecting software vulnerabilities isn’t enough. Traditional security scanners only do half the job by identifying and tracking possible vulnerabilities and exposure without eliminating the risk.

Combining security scanning and patch management in a single console, our vulnerability scanning feature not only shows you what’s wrong, but also deploys the solution. Gain visibility into OS and third-party vulnerabilities while increasing cyber resilience through automated patching and security scans. Insights into the OS misconfigurations and compliance violations reduce your attack surface and increase peace of mind.
