CyBlock/Cyfin Release 9.1.4 Now Available

Friday, January 30th, 2015

In Release 9.1.4, we are excited to provide our CyBlock Cloud customers with our Bandwidth Management feature that enables IT administrators to throttle bandwidth at the Web content category level. This feature targets noncritical Web traffic and keeps your mission-critical Web traffic flowing. The release also includes the addition of the Site Audit Summary report as well as many enhancements to CyBlock App for iOS. The enhancements are highlighted below.

  • Bandwidth Management in CyBlock Cloud. The following features have been added:
    • The Throttling Policy Configuration page allows you to implement a restriction policy when enterprise bandwidth consumption exceeds a preestablished threshold.
      • You can create, edit, and delete policies based on categories or groups.
      • When exceeded, your user-defined thresholds activate your policies and trigger alerts.
      • Cap limits can be added to throttle bandwidth for noncritical categories or groups. They can also be used to block nonessential categories when a threshold is exceeded.
    • The Real-Time Bandwidth Monitor page provides current bandwidth usage data for the enterprise. When a bandwidth throttling policy is activated, an alert with the policy name and its associated threshold will be shown.
    • An e-mail notification will automatically be sent to the administrator for each bandwidth throttling policy activated.
  • Site Audit Summary. This report lists the top users in your organization who visited a particular site. The report can be run for more than one site and shows the total number of visits made by the user, hourly total visits, and hourly total kilobytes read.
  • CyBlock App for iOS. The following features have been added:
    • The App is now compatible with iOS 8 and works with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
    • The user interface has been updated to match the iOS 8 UI for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
    • The Web blocking message and blocked extension messages have been added to the App.
    • The ability to perform a search from the search bar has been added. The App will use Google to search for the text that you enter.
