we updated to and saw that there are new sensors added. why would you just add new sensors without the client requesting / approving it!?

anyone else had this?

Dear Sam,

The Common SaaS BETA sensor was introduced in September with PRTG Network Monitor Version 15.3.19. This sensor will be automatically added to every probe device. We announce such changes within our release notes, kindly find a cutting from the 15.3.19 notes:

  • The Common SaaS BETA sensor monitors the response times of several common Software as a Service providers like Google Apps, Office 365, Salesforce, and GitHub. PRTG adds this sensor to each probe device automatically, so you get alerts immediately if your cloud services are not reachable anymore.

Best regards, Felix
