New in NSS 9.90 SR5

You are here:


Scalability and Usability
NSS 9.90 SR5 builds on the advances made in previous 9.90 service releases. Customers are increasingly moving to this major version in order to realise the value NSS can bring to Compliance, Vulnerability, Records Management, and Information Security practices. Whether it be to streamline identification and prioritisation of tasks or woven deep into task execution workflows, the ‘data about data’ that NSS can bring is proving invaluable.
Further Advances for Multi-level Aggregations
NSS 9.90 SR5 brings further improvements in the solution’s ability to offer data aggregation at multiple levels; view summary data for top level shares as well as, one, two, three, etc. levels down. Being able to drill-down in this manner allows for problems (inefficiency, risk exposure, etc.) to be much more clearly defined, and for responses to be both swifter and more accurate.
NOTE: The commercial agreement in place between your organization and Northern will affect which software capabilities are available to you. Please contact your Account Manager, or to discuss the use cases NSS can be put to in your organization.
