New installations will automatically include the new Advanced Threat Control version. The Fast Ring endpoints will also be migrated automatically to the new version. The Slow Ring endpoints will be migrated later on.

  • When uninstalling Bitdefender Endpoint Security Tools, non-boot encrypted drives managed by the Encryption module are now unlocked without requiring a recovery key.
