New Enhancements to Central Firewall Reporting – Release Notes & News – XG Firewall

We’re pleased to announce the addition of new reporting capabilities for Sophos Central Firewall Reporting (CFR). Customers of CFR Advanced will now see the option to save, schedule and export their favorite reports in Sophos Central, further extending your powerful custom reporting capabilities in the cloud

What’s New and How to Use it:

  • Save Reports as Templates – Central Firewall Reporting Advanced lets you save custom report templates. First, customize a report with the columns, filters, and chart type you want. Then save it in your template library for quick access whenever you need to run it.
  • Schedule Reports – Getting your favorite and custom reports is now even easier as you can schedule them to be delivered your inbox or picked up in Sophos Central at your convenience. The scheduler allows you to set a frequency for your reports including daily, weekly, and monthly options.
  • Export your Reports – Reports can now be exported in HTML, CSV, and (coming next month) PDF formats. As an additional bonus, the exported reports provide up to 100,000 records in a report whereas the interactive reports in Central are limited to 10,000 records. Download your favorite report for offline viewing directly from Sophos Central or have it delivered directly to your inbox.

New options for exporting, scheduling and saving reports are conveniently located on every report screen.

 

You have complete control over the scheduling frequency, report format, and delivery

We will be covering Central Firewall Reporting in more detail in an upcoming article in our series on Making the Most of XG Firewall v18.

 

What You Need:

CFR Advanced is a new subscription license that offers additional storage for your Firewall log data for historical reporting, and now adding these additional new features for saving, scheduling and exporting reports.

CFR Advanced subscriptions are on a per-firewall basis, so each firewall you wish to report on in Sophos Central, will require its own CFR Advanced license

CFR Advanced licenses are purchased in 100GB storage quantities. You can use the storage estimation tool (at sophos.com/cfrsizing) to quickly determine the estimated storage required for your particular needs.

Collaborate with people who are not using a Google account in Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites

What’s changing 

We’re making visitor sharing—secure, pincode-based collaboration with people who do not have a Google account—generally available. This means you can share items with non-Google accounts, enabling them to view, comment on, or edit content in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites using a secure pincode. 
Visitor sharing was previously available in beta, and will replace the current admin setting to allow users in your organization to send sharing invitations.  ‘

We’ll introduce the new feature according to this timeline: 

  • August 31, 2020: The setting to control sharing with people who are not using a Google account will begin to appear in the Admin console. This setting may be on or off by default depending on your current settings. See “Getting started” below to learn more. This setting will not start taking effect for users until September 8, 2020 (for Rapid release domains) or September 28, 2020 (for Scheduled release domains). 
  • September 8, 2020: Users in Rapid Release domains will be able to use the new feature, if enabled by their admin. 
  • September 28, 2020: Users in Scheduled Release domains will be able to use the new feature, if enabled by their admin. 

Who’s impacted 

Admins and end users 

Why you’d use it 

G Suite customers often work with partners outside of their company. These external users, or “visitors,” don’t always have Google accounts, making it more difficult for G Suite and non-Google users to collaborate seamlessly and securely. 

This new feature will help ensure smooth and secure collaboration with visitors through: 

  • Rich collaboration—including comments, edits, and more⁠—with anyone you need to work with, regardless of whether they have a Google account. 
  • Audit logging for collaboration with visitors, so that all interactions are monitored and recorded. 
  • Ability to revoke access and remove collaborators as needed. 
  • Reduced need to download, email, or create separate files to work with external users who don’t have Google accounts. 

If the visitor chooses to create a G Suite account with their email address, their collaboration and activity history will be preserved after the account is created. 

Additional details 

Visitor sharing will not be supported for Cloud Identity users. With this launch, Cloud Identity users will only be able to share with non-Google recipients by sending invites that allow users to preview file contents in a read-only mode without signing in to Google accounts. 

Getting started 

Admins: 

  • Sharing outside of your organization to users with non-Google accounts will be ON by default if you currently allow users in your organization to send sharing invitations to people outside your organization who are not using a Google account.
  • Sharing outside of your organization to users with non-Google accounts will be OFF by default if you currently do not do not allow sharing outside your organization, or use domain whitelisting, Use our Help Center to learn more about sharing to non-Google accounts. 
  • Visitor sharing will be controlled by new settings at Admin console > Apps > G Suite > Drive and Docs > Sharing Settings. See image below. The new settings can be controlled at the domain or OU level. 

Rollout pace 

Admin console setting: 

End user feature availability: 

Availability 

  • Available to G Suite Business, G Suite Enterprise, G Suite for Education, G Suite Enterprise for Education, G Suite for Nonprofits, and G Suite Essentials customers 
  • Not available to G Suite Basic, Cloud Identity customers, or users with personal accounts

Connecting Zoho with cloud telephony—why and how?

Your customers and prospects expect a personalized experience. When they call, they expect you to know who they are and why they are calling—and the sales and support experiences you deliver significantly influence your prospects’ purchasing decisions and customers’ trust in your brand.

But how do you deliver a frictionless, contextual experience to make the most of every interaction?

When you integrate Zoho CRM or Desk with your telephony system, you can quickly identify the caller and see contextual information, including past interactions—all the essentials to deliver a meaningful and personalized conversation over the phone. Integrating the two systems unlocks a host of other benefits such as

  • Shorter lead response time by replacing manual dialing with easy features such as click-to-dial and autodialer

  • Improved productivity and efficiency by eliminating manual call logging

  • Better call management with caller identification via on-screen call pops for all incoming calls, notifications about missed calls, and reminders for outbound calls

  • First-call resolution by AI call routing powered by Zia (Zoho’s intelligent assistant) to automatically route calls to match customer needs with agent skills

  • No more telephony hardware that’s expensive to procure and maintain, so you can carry on with your business from anywhere

All these features help your sales and support execs enhance the caller experience and improve the effectiveness of their interactions by proactively using data from your Zoho product.

If your business is already using a telephony provider, discover a pre-built integration for your telephone system, and use it for free. Zoho offers native integration with over 100 telephony service providers for businesses of all sizes—from SMBs to enterprises and everything in between.

Adding support for service accounts in Google Groups

What’s changing 

  • Add service accounts from primary and secondary domains without turning the “Allow external members in the group” setting on. 
  • See the service account member type on the Groups page and audit logs in the Admin console. 
  • Add, remove, and manage service account membership via the Admin console and Cloud Identity Groups API. 

Who’s impacted 

Admins and developers 

Why it’s important 

Groups are a critical tool for customers to manage their G Suite deployment. Many customers use service accounts with Groups to automate user management, manage migrations, and integrate G Suite with other apps, tools, and services. 

Until now, it was difficult to use service accounts in groups due to limitations in the functionality. This launch fixes many challenges and makes it easier to use service accounts with groups while increasing security and transparency. 

Additional details 

The feature does not affect Admin SDK Group APIs. 

Getting started 

Rollout pace 

  • This feature is available now for all users. 

Availability 

  • Available to all G Suite customers

Use service accounts with Google Groups APIs without domain-wide delegation

What’s changing 

Service accounts can now have direct access to Groups APIs without needing domain-wide delegation and admin impersonation. This means you can: 

Who’s impacted 

Admins and developers 

Why it’s important 

Using service accounts with Groups can help provide sufficient data access for business apps and enable the automation of various admin tasks. 

Previously, you had to use domain-wide delegation and admin impersonation to provide service accounts with sufficient data access. This was a cumbersome process, which could result in overly broad privileges for the service account and audit logs that were hard to interpret. 

By enabling direct API access, we’re making it easier to use service accounts to enable critical business apps and processes while making it easier to maintain a strong security and compliance posture. 

Getting started 

Rollout pace 

  • API role assignments:

    This feature is available now for all users 

  • Admin console roles page updates: Rapid and Scheduled release domains: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on August 26, 2020

Making the most of XG Firewall v18 – Part 6 – Sophos News

One of the great new features in XG Firewall v18 that we covered in Part 3 of this series is the new SD-WAN application and user-/group-based link selection capabilities. In this article, we’ll review how you can take advantage of those as a part of another new feature in XG Firewall v18: route-based IPsec VPN.

Route-based IPsec (RBVPN) in XG Firewall v18 enables truly dynamic IPsec site-to-site VPN tunnels. With RBVPN, network topology changes don’t impact VPN policy and you no longer need to modify VPN policies if networks are added or removed from your environment. This greatly simplifies VPN policy creation and management, especially in larger and more dynamic environments.

RBVPN provides full control over routing with support for static, dynamic (OSPF, BGP, RIP) and SD-WAN policy-based routes with RBVPN policies. RBVPN implementation in XG Firewall v18 also provides flexibility to set up more complex network address translation using the new NAT rule configuration such as VPN NAT overlap scenarios.

XG Firewall v18 also supports RBVPN tunnel interfaces for SD-WAN policy-based routes to support IPsec and MPLS co-existence with SD-WAN. This makes it possible to enable IPsec and MPLS (even on a non-WAN zone) to both be active at the same time, with options for load balancing on VPN tunnels as well.

RBVPN is a well-accepted industry standard and interoperates nicely with other vendors’ route-based VPN tunnels, making it easier to tunnel to Azure/AWS and other cloud providers. Ultimately, route-based VPN is the preferred choice for today’s dynamic networks.

Making the most of route-based IPsec VPN tunnels in XG Firewall

This video provides a great detailed look at how to set up route-based VPN in XG Firewall v18:

Then, you can take full advantage of the new Synchronized SD-WAN policy-based routing for your VPN traffic, with options for user, group, application, and even Synchronized Application Control-discovered app-based routing for your route-based VPN.

Synchronized SD-WAN leverages the added clarity and reliability of application identification that comes with the sharing of Synchronized Application Control information between Sophos-managed endpoints and XG Firewall.  Synchronized Application Control can positively identify 100% of all networked applications, including evasive, encrypted, obscure, and custom applications – and now these previously unidentified applications can also be added to SD-WAN and VPN routing. This provides a level of application routing control and reliability that other firewalls can’t match.

To use Synchronized Application Control-discovered apps in your routing, when creating an  application object for SD-WAN or VPN routing, you can select “Synchronized Application Control” from the Technology drop-down box as shown below to see all the relevant applications.

Here’s a summary of the resources available to help you make the most of the new features in XG Firewall v18, including the new route-based VPN capabilities:
