SES Evolution 2.4.4 fixes


Before updating your solution from a version 2.3.x to version 2.4.4, you must download and deploy the 2304a security policy. To download it, go to your MyStormshield client area or to the Stormshield Updates panel in your administration console.

  • Windows 10 21H2 build 19044.3086, KB5027215 (13/06/2023)

  • Windows 11 22H2 build 22621.1105, KB5022303 (10/01/2023)

The issue has since been fixed, except for a limitation on network shares, described in the section Explanations on usage.
