Product Update - Sept. 26th, 2023

New Features & Enhancements

  • New Single User Identity to Simplify Policy Enforcement and User Management: Over the next few weeks, we are unifying users into a single user identity to enhance policy enforcement and user management.

    • Policies will be enforced whether users are located behind a site or remotely  

      • Cato will automatically update all your users to the new single user identity

      • Policies that were enforced for either a User Awareness user or a SDP user, will now be enforced for the new single user identity  

    • All users will now be visible from the Users Directory page, providing a single location to manage and view all your users.

  • New Event when Users Proceed after Prompt Page: The Prompt action shows a page to the users, and then they can choose to proceed to the site. Now, an event is generated when users click Proceed on the Prompt page for these policies: WAN Firewall, Internet FirewallTLS Inspection. These events help admins better understand the users' online behavior, and identify when they visit potentially suspicious website.
