Cato SDP Client Releases
Windows Client v5.6: Soon we will start the gradual roll-out for the Windows Client version 5.6. Below is a preview of planned features and enhancements for this version. Read more about best practices for upgrading Clients.
Improved Out-of-the-Box Security:
Deploying Clients with Always-On Enabled: You can automatically enable Always-On for new Client installations, so that users will not have Internet access until after they are authenticated.
Automatically Show Client when the Device Starts: To let an SDP user set up a new device and easily find the Client and then Connect to the network, you can now use a registry flag to define if the Client app automatically opens or not.
Exclude Network Ranges from LAN Blocking: Use the Split Tunnel feature with LAN Blocking to define subnets that are excluded from the tunnel. For example, this lets a device connect to a LAN printer even though LAN Blocking is enabled.

The Client automatically upgrades to the next minor Client version when it is available
