Policy Server

  1. Introducing Domain Based Access for your external users. 

  • Enterprises can now give permissions to recipients of an entire domain while protecting files. 
  • For example, while protecting files using right-click > protect, users can add @stringuard.com in the recipients section. This would give permissions to all users of that domain. Users can also define a policy to give permissions to domains, which can then be used in Hot Folders and integrations.
  • This feature is useful for external collaboration and lets your partners decide who they wish to share permissions with internally. 
  • System Administrators can disable/enable this feature in any external repository in the Repositories section of the Policy Server portal. They can also add domains (usually public domains like @gmail.com) in the deny list to prevent users from giving access to such domains. 
  • This feature will be enabled by default for all enterprises who upgrade their Policy Server to this version. 
  • Global Security Admins can revoke access for domains. They can also replace or replicate permissions from one domain to another, an individual to a domain, or vice versa. 
  • Changes made to the permissions of a domain will apply to all recipients onboarded using domain-based access.  
  • Recipients who are part of the domain-based access but have also received permissions individually will continue to retain their individual permissions along with domain-based access permissions. 
  1. Made improvements to the Policy Server Installation package. 

  2.  Spring libraries upgraded to version 5.3.18 to address the recently observed Spring4shell vulnerability (CVE-2022-22965).
