Hi everyone,

The team is pleased to announce the release of Wazuh 3.10.0. This new version comes with lots of additions and improvements, so here are some of the release highlights:

HIPAA and NIST 800-53 compliance support

Wazuh helps users achieve alignment with HIPAA and NIST 800-53 requirements:

  • Mapping added to the Security Configuration Assessment module policies.
  • 981 Wazuh rules have been mapped to support HIPAA and NIST 800-53 compliance.
  • Our App now includes two new regulatory compliance dashboards:

Security Configuration Assessment module

The SCA module has been heavily refactored and cleaned up:

  • Policies now contain HIPAA and NIST 800-53 mapping.
  • The internal engine rework improves SCA performance and reliability.
  • Policy syntax is more user-friendly: Checks logic inversion allows for more coherent policies expression.
  • A new numeric comparator supports more rules types.

The policies have been fully reviewed, and the module refactor has been adapted to support additional platforms. In addition, the compliance mapping information is now part of the alert groups.

Enhanced Wazuh ruleset

We have added support for several technologies through new decoders and rules:

Agent summary API request

The new API call provides users with an accurate snapshot of the situation: groups list, agents OS distribution list, cluster nodes count, detailed information for the last registered agent, etc.
