Build 2.0.6 – November 27, 2023

Item Number



Precision Mode.   Formerly ‘Slim Mode’ (SERVER-353), Precision Mode offers enhanced capability settings such as:

1.    Monitor cron instructs ZeroLock to monitor cron jobs. Cron, Anacron, and/or Crond must be present in the Process Scan Regex for this setting to work.

2.    Monitor systemd instructs ZeroLock to monitor systemd and any services restarted or started by a periodic job.

3.    Monitor containerd instructs ZeroLock to monitor containers. Containerd must be present in the Process Scan Regex for this setting to work.

4.    The process scan regex is a regex that must be matched for processes ZeroLock will monitor when it does sweeps of the system.

By default, an agent does not monitor any processes. Process monitoring settings are set in the Configuration Profile or in the Server Query functionality.

It may take up to 60 seconds for an agent to start monitoring SSH and other processes when it is initially applied.



Build 2.0.5 – November 22, 2023

Item Number



Email Alerts: When set via the Configuration Profile, a user may receive notification emails generated in response to specific alerts.


Agent Slim Mode:  This change introduces a new feature called “Slim Mode” which is enabled on the default Configuration Profile.   

If Slim Mode is enabled, then the agent only monitors SSH processes and their children. If Slim Mode is disabled, the agent begins monitoring all networked processes, systemd, cron, and containerd within 120 seconds (about 2 minutes).   

A settings section for enabling or disabling slim mode has been added to Configuration Profile homepage. 

This new feature is only available for Zerolock Agent 2.1.5 or greater.


Enhanced SSO functionality:  Single Sign On (SSO) login functionality has been enhanced.


 LOCKED Account Status Added:  An account becomes LOCKED if the user provides invalid credentials and fails to successfully log in 5 times in a row.  The account will be unlocked after 5 minutes or if a User with the requisite authority unlocks the account.


Email Alert Generation:  Email alerts will only be generated for the currently configured time period to prevent spamming with alerts from periods when email alerts were disabled.
