Product Update - Sept. 4th, 2023

New Features & Enhancements

  • Improved Section Management for Firewalls: We’ve added the following usability enhancements to the Internet and WAN Firewall policies:
    • A more intuitive process for creating new sections
    • Drag and drop entire sections, and automatically update rule priorities
    • Drag and drop individual rules between sections
  • Create Static Hosts Directly from Known Hosts Page: The Known Hosts page shows discovered hosts on your site. With one click you can save a discovered host as a static host. This enhancement simplifies the process of saving dynamically discovered hosts as static hosts with reserved IP addresses.
    • The discovered host’s information such as name, IP address, and MAC address are automatically configured to the static host settings
  • Define Country Conditions in Application Control Policy: We are enhancing the App Control and Data Control rules to include a SourceCountry condition. For example, you can set a rule that allows the download of PII to users only in the US.
  • Enhancement for SaaS Security API Dashboard: We added a widget that shows the number of events for each rule action. For example, you can see the number of Quarantine and Remove Share events for the account.
  • New Event Presets: We are introducing these event presets in the Events page: Network Connectivity, Socket Upgrade, BGP, and LAN Firewall events types.
  • Deprecating Log Exporter: We are deprecating the Log Exporter feature and it will be End of LIfe in favor of alternative solutions that provide better coverage, consistency, performance, and ease of use.
    • For accounts that are currently using the Log Exporter, you can continue using this feature until March 2024. After this time, you will no longer be able to use this feature to download log files from the Cato AWS S3 bucket. 
    • For all other accounts, starting on Sept. 10th you can’t enable the feature and the Log Exporter page will be removed from the Cato Management Application.
    • You can use one of these solutions to export the events for your account:
