SME File Fabric v1803 Release Notes

PII Discovery

This release supports the detection, classification and notification of personally identifiable information (PII) and other sensitive data in documents across all data sources. PII rules can be enabled to identify sensitive data contained in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Text, PDFs and other files. Note: This capability is an add-on to the core platform. See documentation at PII Scanning and Detection.

Download My Personal Data

End users can now view and download personal data that the system has stored supporting regulatory requirements for user’s “Right of Access”. This includes contact information, storage systems connected, applications used including IP addresses and policies accepted.

Audit Log Streaming

The user audit logs can now be easily streamed, through custom plugins, to third-party platforms for storage and analysis.

Click-Through Policy Acceptance

There is now more control over when a user must accept and re-accept site use agreements. Upon login, users can be required to accept policies they haven’t already accepted, their acceptance has expired, or the policies have changed.

Acceptance can also be set to be required before the API can be used, including FTP and CloudDAV. Support is also improved for imported and auto-provisioned users who have not self-registered.

Additional Region Support

Zoho Editor's EU service can now be integrated with the appliance for online editing. Previously only the US service was supported.
