We are thrilled to announce the launch of the next major release of TheHive. TheHive v5.1 is the result of extensive research, development, and collaboration with our users and partners. It is a major step forward in the evolution of the platform, making it the most customizable version ever. With this release, users can expect to see significant improvements in their ability to respond to and manage cybersecurity incidents thanks to powerful new customization, automation, and reporting functionalities.
This release includes several highly anticipated new features such as the ability to apply multiple case templates, to set tasks as mandatory, to search all elements at once, to change case ownership and the possibility to perform actions when dealing with similar alerts, making it easier than ever to manage your daily flow of incident response. We are also introducing brand-new Functions that will change the way you receive data in TheHive from external systems and third-party services. Another key new feature is the ability to configure SAML providers in addition to OAuth2, which makes it easier for organizations to implement Single Sign-On and manage access to their security incident response data.
In addition, we have included a number of exciting enhancements as well. Dashboards and key performance indicators (KPIs) have been improved and extended to help you keep track of your progress and make informed decisions. On the security features of TheHive itself, we’ve added split permissions to let you better customize your user’s security profiles.
Overall, TheHive v5.1 represents a significant step forward in the evolution of incident response tools, and is designed to help organizations of all sizes to improve their ability to respond to cybersecurity incidents. With its powerful new features and enhancements, TheHive provides organizations with the tools they need to streamline incident response workflows and improve the overall efficiency of their security operations.
