Proactively synchronize your organization’s internal AD with CyBlock Directory Agent.

Monday, March 23rd, 2015


Changes in your Active Directory (AD) can happen often, and randomly. Whether it is due to changes in a group or an update to the status of an employee, having your workforce change can be a critical security concern if not addressed immediately. Wavecrest CyBlock Cloud customers can now import and schedule automatic updates for any changes to your organization’s AD Groups and IDs, using the CyBlock Directory Agent. There is no need to manually recreate groups and IDs for the cloud service. The features also include a configuration wizard for easy AD setup, the ability to add only new data from AD or replace all groups and IDs, and the ability to view your list of groups and IDs to verify the imported grouping structure. Configuration is easy to implement, and confirmation e-mails are sent to verify the import. With CyBlock Directory Agent, you will know that your changes have been synced, per your schedule or manually at any time, with your CyBlock Cloud account.

CyBlock Cloud Web Security Solution provides comprehensive Web controls, threat protection, reporting, bandwidth management, and more — all in a deployment requiring no hardware or software to buy and install, and no maintenance.

Cyfin Release 8.7.2 and CyBlock Release 6.7.2 Now Available

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Upgrade today with the latest release of Cyfin and CyBlock. In this release, you will find new user guides, significant changes to the Dashboard charts, new pages to display errors, screen communication with the ISA plug-in as well as several corrections. The list of enhancements for CyBlock Proxy, CyBlock ISA, CyBlock Appliance, Cyfin Reporter, and Cyfin Proxy includes the following:

  • User Guides. The user guides were enhanced to add a hyperlinked table of contents and additional hyperlinks in the chapters for ease of navigation when reading as electronic documents. The chapter and section headings, notes, cautions, and important information are color-coded for improved readability. With the improved layout, the user guides can be easily printed double-sided if you prefer to read in hard copy.
  • Dashboard Charts. The charts and screens were modified to remove the need for Adobe Flash Player, add the ability to zoom in the chart, add a legend to toggle options on and off, and update other sections of the screens.
  • Import From Active Directory. After creating or modifying an Active Directory configuration, you can now click an import link on the Configuration Completed screen. You will be directed to the Import – Active Directory – Manual screen to import groups and IDs.
  • Error Pages. Error pages were added to display more detailed error information and allow information to be sent via e-mail to the administrator if the administrator e-mail is set up. The administrator can then submit the error and additional information to Wavecrest Technical Support.
  • New Job Queue Section. For CyBlock, a Job Queue section was added to the Block Web Categories and Block Web Content screens to inform the user that jobs are running in the queue. If jobs are in the queue, this new section is displayed when the page is accessed or after submitting changes. The page is refreshed when the Job Queue is empty.
  • Speed Up ISA Communication. The communication between the ISA plug-in and the CyBlock service was enhanced so that on the Edit URLs screen, only custom categories are loaded and not the entire URL List decreasing the load time. In addition, messages are now queued.
  • Add Screen Communication for ISA.Changes were made to indicate that the ISA plug-in is communicating with specific screens while the communication messages are being queued. Messages will be displayed on the following screens:
    • Login – Results
    • Administration – System Information – Filter Status
    • Advanced Settings – Filter Settings – Block Web Categories
    • Advanced Settings – Filter Settings – Block Web Content
