Nightfall is starting off the new year strong with several exciting updates, including a smoother Google Drive remediation workflow, an automatic annotations feature, and all-new policy pages for Atlassian and Google Drive. 

Read on to learn more about what we’ve been up to this month.

Burst Management for Google Drive 

If sensitive data is continuously added to a Google Drive file, and you’ve previously deemed that data to be low risk, Nightfall now allows you to ignore new violations from that specific file. Here’s how it plays out:

  • If more than one violation is reported for a file, you’ll see an option to ignore future violations for that file. 
  • If you change your mind, you can revert this setting by using the “Undo” option. 
  • If you want to investigate further, you can audit, review, or undo all ignored violations in the “Resolved” tab. 

Ultimately, these new options create a more focused and efficient workflow for SecOps teams who are looking to save time on monitoring and triage. This feature is currently available in early preview and will be generally available in February.  Here's a sneak peek at what the user experience will look like.

Automatic Annotations

Annotations help track the status of violations, whether they’re false positives, true positives, or something in between. Now, Nightfall will automate the annotation process by: 

  1. Annotating every finding. If you’ve already annotated a finding, any exact matches will also be annotated automatically. This applies to both new and existing findings. 
  2. Ignoring false positive alerts. This is a huge help if you’re looking to cut down on your triage and investigation workflows. 

Want to try out this feature for yourself? It's currently available in early preview and will be generally available in February.

Date Range Filter

You asked, and Nightfall listened. We're excited to announce that the highly requested date range filter is now available to all users in the dashboard and violations UI. The custom range option helps you filter your dashboard and violations views to specific date ranges, including both custom ranges as well as pre-set ranges for 7, 30, 90, 120, and 180 days.

Using this new filter, SecOps teams can view reports at a glance. Try the filter in your Nightfall dashboard, or reach out to our Customer Success team with any questions.

Centralized Policy Page Updates

Google Drive

Many companies have multiple domains to protect. Nightfall’s newest feature helps SecOps teams add any internally recognized domain to optimize detection and triage in the Nightfall console.

Enjoy a more seamless triage and remediation workflow with options to “Remove users” or “Remove anyone with a link” to certain files. You can also automatically “Restrict” files or ensure that they’re “Shared with internal users only.”

Finally, Nightfall’s highly anticipated human firewall feature is now available for Google Drive. ICYMI, this feature empowers employees to self-remediate their own violations.


Customers will now be able to manage alerts for both Jira and Confluence from within a single Atlassian tab in the Nightfall console. Not only that—you’ll also have the option to add multiple Atlassian sites, as well as to connect both sandbox and production environments.

Finally, you’ll see that our human firewall feature is available for both Jira and Confluence.
