Filter policies on assetsโ€‹

Asset policy pages now include filtering by policy types and scores so you can see exactly what policies are applied and where failures are occurring.

Policy filtering

Data type conversion MQL helpersโ€‹

New MQL helpers allow you to quickly convert data to the right format for your custom checks and data queries.

> int(1.23)

> bool(1)

> float(12)

> string(1.89)

> regex("w.r.d") == "world ๐ŸŒŽ"

Endpoint detection and response (EDR) policyโ€‹

Ensure critical employee endpoints have endpoint detection and response (EDR) software installed and running with our new Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) policy. This policy checks to see if SentinelOne or CrowdStrike are installed on macOS, Linux, and Windows systems.

Open source Mondoo documentationโ€‹

Do typos in documentation keep you up at night like they do for me? We open sourced our documentation so you can fix that problem and get some sleep.

Check out our new public repo at for instructions on how to contribute fixes and improvements.


Resource improvementsโ€‹


  • Add support for advanced selectors in the eventSelectors field.


  • Add new deliveryChannels field.


  • Add a new resource with fields representing an individual AWS Config delivery channel configured within an account.


  • Add new assumeRolePolicyDocument field.


  • Add new originVersion field on Debian Linux-based assets.
  • Include version data in the origin field for source packages on Debian Linux-based assets.

Filter AWS scans by regionโ€‹

Filter cnspec command line scans by AWS region with new filter options:

cnspec scan aws --filters all:region=us-east-2
cnspec scan aws --filters region=us-east-2
cnspec scan aws --filters ec2:region=us-east-2

Thanks for this great contribution @montera82!

Updated policy check impact scoresโ€‹

Prioritize the most important checks first with newly adjusted check priorities for CIS Linux distribution policies. These improved scores ensure that only the most important checks are listed as failures, so you can more easily prioritize critical work.

Improved AWS policiesโ€‹

Both the CIS AWS Foundations benchmark policy and the various AWS Best Practices policies have seen major refactoring. These changes include improved queries and result output as well as new descriptions and remediation data. Stay tuned for more updates as we refactor all queries in these policies to use the latest MQL resources and helpers.


  • Improve reliability of fetching CVE data for assets.
  • Only show unresolved CVEs in the asset CVE list.
  • Fix package CVE false positives for some Debian packages.
