Product: ArcSight Transformation Hub
Version: 3.3
Languages: English

Transformation Hub 3.3 contains the following Key Features:

  • Deployment and configuration of Transformation Hub processing in Microsoft Azure environment that leverages Azure services and capabilities.
  • Upgrades to Version 3.3.0 from prior Version 3.x releases and patches/hotfixes are supported in the native CDF Installer, using rolling upgrades through the Master and Worker Nodes in the cluster.
  • Support for the latest Connector release, v8.0.0
  • Support for the new Avro formatted event schema
  • The ZSTD compression algorithm is now supported.  ZSTD generally performs better than GZIP, which was the only supported compression algorithm up until this release. ZSTD compression requires an upgrade to SmartConnector v8.0.0, where it is also now supported. 
  • By defining rules in ArcMC, events may be filtered and routed in the Transformation Hub for events transformed from CEF to Avro format and consumed by ESM, Interset, Logger and Investigate.  These events may now be stored in a common highly performant Vertica database shared by all ArcSight products.
  • The Container Deployment Platform has been upgraded to version 2020.05.  A new CDF Doctor troubleshooting capability is now available to help pinpoint issues with Transformation Hub’s container-based deployments.
  • Platform component version updates have been certified on RHEL 7.8, CentOS 7.8 (RHEL/CentOS 8.1 was already supported in 3.2.0), with current releases of Azul Zulu Java runtime, PostgreSQL, Apache Client, and the Confluent platform (which includes Apache Server, Schema Registry and ZooKeeper).  Component libraries include current vulnerability compliance, and ciphers are up-to-date.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes.Refer to the Release Notes for the specific defects addressed.
