Product Update - Oct. 16th, 2023

New Features & Enhancements

  • Network Rules Also Support Global IP Range Objects: We are enhancing the Network Rules to support the Global IP Range object.

    • When you select the IP Range for a setting in the rule, you can choose a Global IP Range or a Custom IP Range

    • Global IP Range entities can be a range of IPs, a single IP, or a CIDR network

    • The existing IP Range entity in Network Rules is now called Custom IP Range with no change to functionality

  • Enhancement for DLP Predefined Data Types - Visibility for Minimum Match Threshold: You can view the threshold of matches for predefined Data Types in a DLP Content Profile. For example, a Data Control rule has a profile set to a threshold of 3, the rule only triggers when a specific Data Type is matched 3 times for the file scan. This lets you align data control policies with increased precision to help ensure effective data protection.

  • SaaS Security API Events Now Include the Full Path URL for the File: We enhanced the events for SaaS Security API with the full file URL to make it easier to locate and investigate events.

    • The file URL is shown in the field Full Path URL for events with the Type Security and the Sub-Type SaaS Security API Data Protection

  • Default Rules Now Visible in Security Policies: Over the next few weeks, we are exposing our existing default security rules to admins to help them better understand rulebase behavior and improve policy decision making. The default rules are visible in the Anti-Malware, WAN Firewall, and TLS Inspection policies. For example, the existing default Any-Any Inspect rule for TLS Inspection will be shown at the bottom of the rulebase.

    • The default rules can’t be edited

    • There are no changes to current policy behavior

  • Enhanced Filters for Sites Page: We added new filters to the Sites page, so you can quickly filter by Site Connectivity Status, Connection Types, or Socket Versions. In addition, you can click the widgets at the top of the page to apply the same filters.

  • New Help Menu in the Cato Management Application: Over the next few weeks, we are adding a new Help button in the Cato Management Application that opens a panel and shows the related Knowledge Base articles and videos for each page.

    • We moved the Contact Support and Send Feedback buttons to this new panel
