Understanding Cato Product Updates (Release Notes)

This article explains how Cato communicates new features and updates to the Cato service.

Cato Product Updates

Cato regularly releases new content to production in the Cato Cloud. To ensure that you are informed and up-to-date with new content, we communicate changes and additions through weekly Product Update emails (release notes).

Product Updates for Customers

At the beginning of each week, Cato sends a Product Update email that describes the new features and enhancements that are being gradually deployed to customers and the Cato service. The same information is also available in an article in the Release Notes section of the Cato Knowledge Base.

The customer Product Update email is sent to each Cato Management Application admin.

Product Updates for Partners

On Wednesday of each week, Cato sends a Partner Product Update email that describes new features in early availability (EA), and other updates for Cato Partners. The same information is also available in an article in the Partner Release Notes section of the Cato Knowledge Base (requires Cato Partner permissions to view these articles).

The Partner Product Update email is sent to each Cato Management Application admin that is registered with Cato as a Partner.

New Client Versions

Cato announces upcoming new Cato Client versions in the Product Updates. When the new version is available for your account, an announcement is shown in the notification area of the Cato Management Application.

For more information, see Best Practices for Cato Client Upgrades and Summary of Cato Client Releases.

Other Types of Cato Updates

These are other types of updates and email notifications that are sent to customers.

Socket Release Notes

When Cato is ready to release a new Socket version, a Socket Release Note announcement with the content of the version is shown in the notification area of the Cato Management Application. The content is also published as an article in the Socket Release Notes section of the Knowledge Base.

Security Announcements

When there is a critical security vulnerability that could impact Cato customers, a Security announcement is emailed to all Cato Management Application admins. The same information is also available in the Security Announcements section of the Knowledge Base.

General Notifications

Sometimes there is a change or update to the Cato service that may impact customers, for example migrating a legacy setting in the Cato Management Application to a new feature. An email notification is sent to the Cato Management Application admins for the specific accounts that are impacted by the change. The same information is also available in the General Notifications section of the Knowledge Base.
