What If I Do Not Upgrade from the HSS (Old) to the HSS (New) Version?

The HSS (Old) can still work properly, until it is completely replaced by the HSS (New) version.

Why You Need to Upgrade to HSS (New)

  • In the future, the HSS (New) version will replace the HSS (Old) version, which will be brought offline after the replacement.
  • The HSS (New) version provides new features and enhances existing features, as described in the following table.
Table 1 Main changes in the HSS (New) version




Free scan on unprotected servers

HSS periodically scans your unprotected servers and provides reports for you to check online.


Asset fingerprint management

HSS deeply scans assets on servers and classifies the assets into different types, such as accounts, ports, processes, web directories, and software information; and display statistics about these types.


Asset importance

You can configure asset importance for your servers and perform operations on them in batches, including but not limited to deploying policies, enabling or disabling protection, assigning groups, and installing agents. For details, see Configuring Asset Importance.


Application vulnerabilities

HSS scans for vulnerabilities in web services, web frameworks, websites, middleware, and kernel modules. For more information, see Viewing Details of a Vulnerability.


Baseline report export

You can filter and export the check results of baseline configurations and common weak passwords.


Application protection

To protect running applications, you simply need to add probes to these applications, without having to modify application files. Detectable risks include but are not limited to SQL injections, command injections, deserialization input, file traversal, and JSP execution of OS commands. For more information, see Enabling Application Protection.


Agent installation

You can install agents in batches in a few clicks. For more information, see Batch Installing Agents.


Protection quota management

You can directly upgrade an earlier version to a later version. For more information, see Protection Quota Management.


Baseline check

You can select baseline check items to assess whether your system meets compliance requirements. For more information, see Managing Baseline Check Policies.


Alarm management

Ransomware and reverse shells can be isolated and killed.

Alarms can be generated for the exploits of common vulnerabilities and Redis, Hadoop, and MySQL vulnerabilities.

For more information, see Server Alarm Events.


Security report

You can customize the report period, content, and sending time. For more information, see Subscribing to a Security Report.


Ransomware detection

HSS monitors new files and running processes in real time, dynamically generates honeypot files to lure and remove ransomware, and periodically backs up servers based on user-defined policies. For more information, see Enabling Ransomware Prevention.


Container protection

The original Container Guard Service (CGS) has been integrated into the HSS (New) version to manage server workloads in a unified manner.
