Fairwinds Insights Release Notes: 8.10-9.6

Over the past month, the Fairwinds development team has released a number of updates to Insights, including our new design Vulnerability Explorer that helps teams mitigate risk.

Spotlight on Vulnerability Explorer

The updated Vulnerabilities Explorer makes it easy for teams to understand high-level risks and address those with the greatest impact. (Watch the video tour). Fairwinds Insights identifies top CVEs, riskiest workloads, and most vulnerable container packages. Teams can also choose to view data by images or by vulnerabilities, allowing them to focus on the most relevant context. Vulnerability Explorer further saves time by providing automated upgrade recommendations with a predicted number of vulnerability reductions.
