Powering the Mission-Critical Role of Automation in the Enterprise


uipath 2021.10 product release series

UiPath has long recognized the critical role that automation plays across organizations. UiPath Automation Platform has been continuously improving automation scalability, management, and reliability across all the departments of the enterprise. With the 2021.10 release, UiPath has taken it a notch higher by making sure that the mission-critical role of automation in your organization is easier to manage and meets the standards of a truly enterprise-grade technology. All that while also offering robust governance and security to your entire automation ecosystem.

Starting with our endpoint protection integration with CrowdStrike, we’re the first in the industry to offer endpoint security for robotic process automation (RPA). Joint UiPath and CrowdStrike customers now can enjoy the same level of endpoint protection for robots as they already have for people at no extra cost. The integration significantly improves and accelerates threat detection, investigation, and remediation while ensuring business continuity. You get real-time correlation of events with the originating RPA processes and the ability to quarantine hosts without disrupting business processes.

Now, with the 2021.10 release, a UiPath Robot reports key endpoint detection information to the CrowdStrike agent, which can then be seen by the security team and trigger alerts on the CrowdStrike dashboard. This enables rapid response to breach risks, a better organizational security posture across human and robot workforces, and prevents the need to take global actions. For instance, a global action might be to shut down a process across all robots because the specific robot with the security issue cannot be identified, which can cause obvious business continuity issues. That isn’t an issue you have to worry about anymore, thanks to the UiPath and CrowdStrike integration.

Some of the notable innovations in the 2021.10 release across UiPath products that enhance the governance and security of the automation ecosystem are:

In 2021.10, UiPath Orchestrator packs a lot of enhancements that make managing your automations easier. Let’s start with the auto-update Robot, Studio, and Assistant capability that will help save a lot of time for your IT admins and RPA centers of excellence (CoEs) who regularly check and update UiPath Robot, Studio, and Assistant that are deployed across the organization.

You can now easily control version management of UiPath Robot, Studio, and Assistant, including more frequent upgrades to get the latest features and patches from Orchestrator. Not only can users get all the updates faster, but you can also set the auto-update policy for users, user groups, and machines by clicking a few buttons in Orchestrator.

Other key enhancements to UiPath Orchestrator include:

To make your automations more resilient, we have introduced the new Robot auto-healing capability to resolve issues in jobs being run without human intervention. The built-in Robot auto-healing capability helps monitor robots, robot machines, running jobs, and initiates actions to resolve issues when preconfigured states such as operating system (OS) freeze, server unavailable, automation stuck, etc., are detected. The auto-healing capability then helps bring robots back to the available state.

UiPath Insights – revamped on-premises experience

Time and money are some of the scarcest resources in an enterprise—and a driving force behind the adoption of RPA. Today, automation powers some of world’s most important processes, and it is business critical for enterprises to track and measure the performance of those automations.

For nearly two years, UiPath Insights has been the RPA analytics solution our customers have used to not only improve their RPA operations, but also understand the impact that those automations are having on their business.

In 2021.10, UiPath customers get a revamped on-premises experience with the following improvements:

We've also simplifed platform support. Beginning with 2021.10, all Enterprise releases receive two years of standard support and one year of extended support, simplifying customer upgrade timing.
