Product Update - March 21st, 2022

New Features & Enhancements

  • Internet Traffic Backhauling: You can use network rules to backhaul specific Internet traffic to sites that are designated as backhauling gateways. The specific Internet traffic is then forwarded to the backhauling site’s local IP gateway for further processing. Read more.
    • The backhauling gateway sites require Socket 12.0 or higher
    • Backhauling traffic is supported for sites and SDP users
  • Improved SDP User Experience with Browser Authentication: We updated the Authentication (Access > Client Access > Authentication) screen so you can select the Browser Authentication experience for your Client users and use the in-Client browser or the external default OS browser. Read more.

    • Please note that in some cases, external default OS browser is still required. Read more
