What’s new with runZero 3.7?
- Custom integrations and Python SDK
- ServiceNow Service Graph Connector for runZero
- Protocol improvements
- New and improved fingerprints
Custom integrations and Python SDKrunZero Enterprise customers can now import assets from custom sources using the runZero SDK. The new Python SDK supports runZero’s custom integration API functions for ease of automation and use for those familiar with Python. These custom integrations allow for creating and importing asset types not previously supported within runZero, along with assigning the integration a name, description, and custom icon. Once imported, you can manage these custom integration sources from the runZero UI, and remove them from assets if desired. This will allow you to build new integrations and further enrich the asset data within runZero.
ServiceNow Service Graph Connector for runZeroThe runZero Service Graph connector is now available in the ServiceNow marketplace. The connector can automatically pull your runZero asset data into your CMDB, merging with your ServiceNow data to improve asset visibility and accuracy. This connector does not replace the ServiceNow IntegrationHub ETL integration; both the connector and integration are available to Enterprise customers.
Protocol improvementsThe 3.7 release includes improved support for the Checkmk host agent. Checkmk is an open source host monitoring service and is deployed as part of many solutions and network appliances. Customers with Checkmk in their environment will benefit from improved software inventory and EDR detection for these assets. The accuracy of operating system fingerprinting has also been improved using available Checkmk data. The scanner now supports the Steam In-Home Streaming Discovery Protocol, allowing for identification of devices running the Steam client from Valve Software.
New and improved fingerprintsA number of fingerprints and fingerprint capabilities have been improved in this release. These improvements include fingerprinting of TLS stacks, better coverage of Roku devices based on AirPlay responses, and improved OS fingerprinting of devices speaking the BACnet protocol. New fingerprints were added for products by Abbott, Aruba, Audioscan, Bayer, Canon, Ciena, Cisco, Crestron, FloLogic, GE HealthCare, GE MDS, Google, H3C, Huawei, IBM, Keyence, Meross, Logitech, NetApp, Panduit, Proofpoint, Roku, Quantum, Raritan, Roku, Shelly, SonicWall, Tesla, TP-Link, and VMware.

Release notesThe runZero 3.7 release includes a rollup of all the 3.6.x updates, which includes all of the following features, improvements, and updates.
- Customers with an enterprise license can now create custom integrations and import assets from any external asset data source using the runZero Python SDK.
- Improved performance and reliability of metrics calculations.
- Improved performance of the vulnerabilities inventory.

- A bug preventing the Asset Ownership goals toggle from being clickable has been resolved.
- Upgraded npcap to version 1.73
- Fingerprint updates.
- A bug that could show cross-tenant Queries and their associated author email addresses was resolved. This issue only applied to a cloud-hosted version of the runZero platform that was live for slightly more than two hours on March 29th, 2023. Any customers affected by this issue received a detailed notice. This affected version 3.6.14.
- A bug that could allow an organization admin to see the names of other organizations in the tenant, even without explicit access, has been resolved. This affected versions 3.6.0 to 3.6.5.
- A bug that could expose limited information about an organization to cross-tenant users has been resolved. This issue could have allowed an attacker that guessed the v4 UUID of an organization to view the name, description, and top-level statistics (asset count, service count, task count, etc.) without appropriate authorization. This affected versions 3.6.0 to 3.6.4.

runZero, a network discovery and asset inventory solution, was founded in 2018 by HD Moore, the creator of Metasploit. HD envisioned a modern active discovery solution that could find and identify everything on a network–without credentials. As a security researcher and penetration tester, he often employed benign ways to get information leaks and piece them together to build device profiles. Eventually, this work led him to leverage applied research and the discovery techniques developed for security and penetration testing to create runZero.
