New Features And Enhancements In Hotfix Release 96.1.0

New Features And Enhancements In Hotfix Release 96.1.0

Here is the list of the new features and enhancements.

Data Protection
Alert And Continue Policy Evaluation

With this release, it is now possible to configure Real-time Protection policies with DLP profiles and select the Continue policy evaluation after match option to continue policy evaluation after a policy match. This feature enables the Netskope Cloud to continue evaluating Real-time policies for additional DLP violations, instead of terminating and exiting policy evaluation after a match.

In order to use the Continue policy evaluation after match option, a Real-time policy must have one or more DLP profiles with actions set to Alert. Any DLP profile matches with actions other than Alert will result in the termination of policy processing.

When multiple DLP profile matches occur while using this feature, any incidents generated will list all matching DLP profiles and related policies. In addition to this, a single policy alert will continue to be generated and list all matching policies.



This is currently a limited availability feature. Contact your Sales Representative or Support to enable this feature.

Original File Access

The DLP incident view now includes an option to download the file content that violates DLP policy. A download icon is now present next to the incident number above the incident detail section. This feature requires a Forensic Profile along with Forensics enabled under Settings.

The Original File download option can be enabled or disabled. Once the option is enabled, the files are automatically stored in a Forensics folder in the SaaS application specified in the Forensic Profile.
