New Features & Enhancements

  • Thousands of New Cloud Applications Added to Cato Security Policies: We added over a thousand new cloud applications to the Cato Management Application.  These new applications can be added to Internet firewall rules. Read more.
  • Improvements to the App Identification Engine: We are improving our infrastructure for identifying apps, and are now more precise in defining apps in the Analytics screens in the Cato Management Application.
    • Previously some apps were identified using generic names or services, and now they show the specific name for the app. For example, traffic for Azure.blob was previously identified as Azure or MS application. Now this traffic is identified with increased granularity.
