Product Update - Mar. 18th, 2024

New Features & Enhancements

  • Enhanced RBI Security Controls: We added granular security controls to Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) that let you customize the security settings for RBI sessions.
    • You can now block or allow these actions: upload, download, copy/paste, and print
    • We also added a Read Only setting that prevents users from entering credentials or other sensitive data on the site
  • Increased Visibility of Remote User Access and Security: We added new widgets to the User Dashboard. These widgets show:
    • How the Client Connectivity Policy is used to control network access for remote users
    • How often the Always-On Policy is bypassed and with which bypass method
    • This feature will be gradually enabled over the next few weeks
  • Enhanced XDR Stories for Microsoft Defender Endpoint Alerts: We added data to Microsoft Endpoint Alert stories that can help you identify key Indicators of Compromise in stories related to outbound network traffic, such as for phishing attacks.
    • These are the new data fields:
      • Target: The URL involved in the story
      • Destination IP: The remote IP address involved in the story
    • Available for XDR Core, XDR Pro and MDR customers
  • Updated the Threshold for Link Congestion Alerts: We updated the threshold when Congestion is configured to True to trigger an event only when more than 1% of packets are discarded. This change improves the accuracy for detecting link congestion, and can change the frequency of the email notifications.
  • New Banner Announcing Expiration for Trial Site Licenses: When there are sites with trial licenses that are expired or about to expire, the Cato Management Application will now show a banner indicating the expiration date for these licenses.
    • The banner is displayed on all pages, until all sites have valid licenses
  • Cato Management Application Enhancement:
    • Enter Socket Description: We added a new Description field to the Sockets page, and you can add information (such as Socket hostname or an ID) to quickly identify the correct Socket in your account. For HA sites, you can configure different descriptions for Primary and Secondary Sockets

PoP Announcements
