Get information on what's new in Cloud App Security's (TMCAS) monthly deployment. Learn about the new features, deployment scope, maintenance schedule, and customer impact of the deployment for March 2021.
The following new features are now available in TMCAS:
Manual Scan Support for Microsoft Teams
TMCAS extends its protection of Microsoft Teams by allowing the administrator to run manual scans, besides real-time scans, in Advanced Threat Protection and Data Loss Prevention.
Display Name Spoofing Detection
TMCAS enhances its Advanced Spam Protection filter to let the administrator choose whether to inspect the email messages from external senders with a look-alike display name as used in your organization, to protect employees against email impersonation attacks. TMCAS also provides a global exception list to let the administrator add trusted email senders and exclude them from display name spoofing analysis.
URL Retro Scan & Auto Remediate in Web Reputation for Exchange Online and Gmail
TMCAS provides an option to rescan historical URLs in users' email metadata and perform continued remediation (automatically taking configured actions or restoring quarantined messages) using newer patterns updated by Web Reputation Services.
Users' email metadata may include undetected suspicious or dangerous URLs that have only recently been discovered. Examination of such metadata is an important part of forensic investigations to determine if your email service is affected by attacks.
One Local Admin Account to Manage Multiple TMCAS Tenants
TMCAS enables the administrator to associate a local admin account with multiple TMCAS tenants of your organization in the same serving site, so they can switch among and manage different tenants with one single account on the management console, instead of repeated logoff and logon using different admin accounts.
This deployment applies to all TMCAS data centers.
