Product Update - Apr. 15th, 2024

New Features & Enhancements

  • Mutation API Supports Optimized PoP Selection for Socket Sites: We updated the addSocketSite mutation API to include the optional City field, which improves the accuracy of Cato’s automatic PoP selection mechanism.
    • In the siteLocation argument, define the city for the Socket site
    • Use the entityLookup query to search for a list of cities
    • The City field is already available in the Cato Management Application
  • User Awareness Identifies SCIM-Provisioned Users in Azure AD Hybrid Join: The Cato Identity Agent can now identify SCIM-provisioned users behind a site when using Microsoft Azure AD hybrid join. No SDP license is required for the Identity Agent.
    • Previously, SCIM-provisioned users using Azure AD hybrid join required an SDP license and one-time authentication
    • No action is required for users to be identified by the Identity Agent
    • Supported from Windows Client v5.9 and higher
