Skyhigh Security Cloud Release Notes 6.2.0 (November 2022)

Skyhigh Secure Web Gateway (Cloud)

Active Directory User Group Lookups

When user group information cannot be provided in the usual way, which relies on Client Proxy, Active Directory lookups can be performed based on user names to retrieve this information. Secure Web Gateway requires user group information to enforce the web policy for a particular user group when a user from this group accesses the web.

For more information, see Configure Active Directory Lookups for User Groups.

Support for Native Browser Certificate Handling

When a web server sends a certificate in secure communication, issues with this certificate are usually handled based on the rules of the web policy that you have configured on Secure Web Gateway. For example, access to a web server is blocked if there is an issue with the server certificate. Certificates with issues can be passed on to the end users' browsers now, so it is up to them how to handle these issues.

For more information, see Allow Users to Handle Issues with Web Server Certificates.

New Data Fields for Reporting with the Forensics API

The REST (Forensics) API that is provided for reporting under Secure Web Gateway offers new data fields. Using these fields, you can download more information about non-isolated web traffic, as well as about traffic processed in Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) mode and Private Access traffic. The new fields are related to malware filtering, discarded hosts, and secure communication protocols for clients and servers.

For more information, see Reporting Fields.

More Log Types Available for Logging

When collecting log data with the Logging Client, logs with data originating from different types of traffic can be downloaded and analyzed. In addition to logging data about normal web traffic, you can now choose to log also data about web traffic processed in Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) mode and Private Access.

For more information, see Select the Log Type to Download with the Logging Client.

Reset API credentials for Zscaler (Limited Availability)

Skyhigh CASB allows you to reset the API credentials for your Zscaler instance. On the Firewall/Proxy Integration page, you can configure your Zscaler instance to reset API credentials and authenticate. For details, see Automatic Proxy Configuration for Zscaler.


Skyhigh Recommended Policy Groups (Limited Availability)

Skyhigh CASB recommends the list of default policy groups. These policy groups include all critical policies in AWS, Azure, GCP Critical Policies, and container policies. You can run config audit on demand scan against these policy groups later. For details, see Skyhigh Recommended Policy Groups.

Auto Discover from Organization Info Method (Limited Availability)

This new method provides AWS organization information to Skyhigh CASB. On providing AWS Organization info, Skyhigh CASB auto discovers all accounts associated with the organization, and allows you to select all or required accounts to add to the organization. This method helps to scan multiple accounts in organization rather than individual accounts. For details, see Configure AWS in Skyhigh CASB.

EDM from Skyhigh CASB and Secure Web Gateway are now unified in both products, and Enhanced EDM fingerprints created in Skyhigh CASB can now be used in Web Classifications. About Exact Data Match (EDM) Fingerprints.


Document Properties in Classifications

Document Property Sets are used to create Classifications to detect documents based on file metadata, such as Author, Keywords (Tags), or Last Saved By. You can also create custom Document Properties to detect custom tags. For details, see Create a Classification using Document Property Sets.


File Encryption Types in Classifications

You can create a Classification and select File Encryption types to detect them in your files. Supported File Encryption Types include Azure, Microsoft, Seclore, StormShield, and Trellix file encryption. For details, see Create a Classification using File Encryption Types.
