Fairwinds Insights Release Notes: 8.10-9.6

Over the past month, the Fairwinds development team have released a number of updates to Insights including our newly designed Vulnerabilities Explorer that helps teams mitigate risks. 

Spotlight on Vulnerabilities Explorer

The update to Vulnerabilities Explorer enables teams to easily understand risk at a high level, and address those with the biggest impact. (Watch video tour). Fairwinds Insights identifies top CVEs, riskiest workloads, and most vulnerable container packages. Teams can also choose to view data by images or vulnerabilities, providing flexibility to focus on the most relevant context. The Vulnerabilities Explorer further supports time savings by providing automated upgrade recommendations with projected vulnerability reduction counts.
