Bubba Xyzzy is born!

Hey all, we’d like to introduce you to our new little Alien mascot. You’ve seen him for about a month here on the Labs page but he’ll be much more predominant around Alienvault in the near future. No worries, he’ll never become annoying like “Clippy” (“I see you are…

Big news on the release front. Some features didn’t make it into 3.0 due to QA but now this has been solved and we wanted to roll out a minor release (which is not so minor if you look at the Changelog…) with this data, before heading towards 4.0 (IPv6 support, huge improvements on the multitenancy/multicustomer side and big performance…
