New Portainer Business 2.4 Release - now with improved governance and security controls for business environments

by Adolfo Delorenzo, on May 2, 2021

Today we are pleased to announce the release of Portainer Business 2.4 (our licensed version of Portainer).

This is a significant release as it includes a number of pieces of functionality specifically requested by our customers. Specifically, the release gives Portainer users tighter governance and security controls over their implementations.

In this release we have added:

1) Authentication Logs - it's now possible to see who has attempted to log into your Portainer instance, with what username, from which IP address, and the result (success/failure)

2) Activity Logs - it's now possible to see what your users have been doing within Portainer, so you can keep a record of any privileged actions undertaken.

3) Portainer Backups - you can now backup and restore your Portainer settings, either for DR purposes, or to move your Portainer instance from one cluster to another.

4) RBAC Operator Role - you can now assign a role called "Operator" to your users; this role provides the ability to start/stop existing containers/apps, but not provide any ability to create or delete.

To upgrade, see or to test drive the new version, visit our live demo environment.
