Product Update - May 8th, 2023

New Features & Enhancements

  • Cato DLP Supports Automated Import for MIP Labels: You can now automatically import your Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) labels and use them in DLP Data Types for the Data Control policy. The labels are fully managed in your Microsoft tenant and then the DLP engine applies them to identify the sensitive content.
  • Enhancement for Site Analytics: Over the next several weeks, we are gradually migrating the Site Analytics data to a new infrastructure for better accuracy and performance.

    • The following screens will be affected by this change: Site Analytics, User Analytics, Site Overview, and SDP User Overview

    • There is no change to the AccountMetrics API, however the data will be retrieved from a new source

    • After this change is applied to an account, the earliest start date for data in Site Analytics will be from March 1st. To gain access to previous data, please contact Support

  • Configuration File for the SDP Client is No Longer Supported: Starting from 4 June, to harden remote access security, using the Configuration File to provide user credentials for new SDP users will be unavailable.

    • There is no change for existing SDP users that have downloaded and used a Configuration File

    • SDP Users can still authenticate by entering their Username and Password manually

  • Cato Management Application Enhancement:

    • Improved Visibility for Socket Link Connectivity Status: The Socket configuration screen now shows the physical connectivity status of each link

Cato SDP Client Releases

  • macOS Client v5.4: We are planning to start the rollout for macOS Client v5.4 during the week of May 14th. These are the planned features and enhancements for this version:

    • New Device Posture Check for Device Certificates Provides Increased Security: You can now include a check for a device certificate within your Device Posture Profiles. The Device Posture Profile can be included in your Client Connectivity and security policies. This check:

      • Improves Device Authentication by ensuring the SDP users or user groups in the rulebased policy have the required certificate before connecting to your network

      • Lets you define stricter Device Posture requirements in your Firewall policies to access corporate resources

    • Always-On Now Supports Temporarily Bypassing the Cato Network: SDP users with Always-On can temporarily bypass Cato security and access the Internet by entering a bypass code in the macOS Client (the same experience as bypass code for the Windows Client).

    • Bug fixes:

      • Improved reconnect after a device wakes up from sleep mode

      • Re-authentication with external browser opens single browser tab

      • Improved Client connectivity when downloading or transferring large files

      • SDP users can disable office mode

    • For more information about the Client rollout process, see the following articles:
