Cato Networks Knowledge Base

Product Update - July 11th, 2022

New Features & Enhancements

  • Sections for Firewall Rules: Firewall rulebases with many rules can be hard to organize, navigate, and manage. Now you can add sections to the WAN and Internet firewalls and group related rules together into a single collapsible and expandable section. Read more.
  • Duplicate Rules for Firewall Policies: With one click, you can duplicate a rule in your WAN and Internet firewalls. This creates a new identical rule directly below the original rule, and allows you to modify the conditions and parameters as needed.
    • When using Firewall sections, the duplicate rule is added directly below the original rule in the same section
  • Socket HA Enhancement: Socket High Availability (HA) is now enhanced for Sockets running different minor versions (e.g., Primary Socket runs 14.0.1111, Secondary Socket runs 14.0.2222). The same version condition only verifies that both Sockets run the same major version. Read more.
