      Linux agent 9.0.0.832

      April 24th, 2024

      New Features:

      • The Perimeter 81 agent is now rebranded to Check Point - Harmony SASE. This includes new logos and a new color scheme.
      • Secure Web Gateway (SWG) now includes Malware Protection. SWG users now have an additional layer of protection against malicious software, on top of the existing web filtering functionality. Malware Protection actively scans content before it reaches the user's browser, blocks multiple types of threats, and notifies the user. Admins can view logs of blocked malware in a new page under the Monitor & Logs section.

      Enhancements:

      • The agent supports the new European Data Residency instance of Harmony SASE, launched earlier in April. The data residency region can be configured when installing the agent using a new 'region' parameter, or by switching to it from the platform sign-in page when signing in to the agent.
      • The agent now reports the exact Linux distribution (i.e., Ubuntu 23.04) in the Device Inventory page. Also, the agent version number now has a lin_ prefix to align the versioning with the other operating systems.

      Resolved Issues:

      • P81-37246 - Agent not displaying DPC failure notifications
      • P81-34266 - SWG bypass rule not being respected
      • P81-40066 - Issue connecting to shared networks with openVPN protocol
      • P81-41876 - RHEL & Fedora - issue connecting with split tunneling enabled
