Product Update - Dec. 4th, 2023

New Features & Enhancements

  • Always-On Enhancements: Over the next few weeks, we are introducing new features that ensure Always-On can be used while maintaining business continuity:
    • New Bypass Mode for Always-On: Users can temporarily access the Internet without waiting for admin approval. Users provide a reason in the Client and Always-On can be temporarily bypassed and the Client can disconnect.
      • The duration of the bypass can be configured by administrators
      • Supported from Windows Client version 5.9
    • Always-On Recovery Mode: Users can access the Internet if a connection to the Cato Cloud is unavailable. For example, if a Captive Portal prevents the Client connecting to Cato Cloud, users can still access the Internet, bypassing Cato security.
      • Supported from Windows Client version 5.9

  • New Dropbox Connector for SaaS Security API: You can now monitor your Dropbox tenants for the transfer of sensitive data, compliance violations, and malicious files. For example, identify when files containing credit card details are shared outside your organization.
