New Features & Enhancements

  • SCIM Provisioning for SDP Users: Now you can provision users from your Identity Providers (IdPs) with the SCIM protocol. The SCIM protocol automatically syncs user and group information, and provisions them from the IdP to your Cato account. These are the supported IdPs:
  • New Enhancements for Managing Site Connectivity SLA: We enhanced the ability to control the link connectivity settings between the Socket and the Cato Cloud. The default setting is to use the Cato Smart algorithm to calculate the optimal SLA thresholds for the best connectivity. You also have the option to configure custom SLA thresholds per site. Read more.
    • Supported from Socket version 12.0 and higher. We are gradually releasing this new version to our customers.
  • Option to Force Specific PoP Locations for a Site: There is a new configuration option for Socket sites, that restricts a site to only connect to the configured preferred PoP locations. You can use this option to make sure that the Socket only connects to PoPs within specific countries or regions. Read more.
    • Supported from Socket version 12.0 and higher. We are gradually releasing this new version to our customers.

      • Define a Grace Timer that the Socket waits before activating this link
