We’ve made some exciting changes based on your feedback and can’t wait for you to check them out.

  • Legal Hold: Legal holds can now be put into place to retain all file versions that specified users (aka custodians) have created during the period of the hold. Retained files cannot be purged from trash during the period of the hold.

    A list of files matching the hold can be exported. When a hold is released, all file versions matching the hold will become eligible to be purged, assuming no other legal holds or retention policies match the file version.

  • Sensitive Content tree view: Sensitive content locations shown in the main Sensitive Content view can now be shown as a tree. A switcher at the top right of the view allows changing between list and tree presentation. The tree view is automatically pruned to include only tree nodes that contain sensitive content that match the current filters, either directly or within direct child folders.


  • Behavioral-based ransomware detection: In addition to the existing signature-based ransomware detection, ransomware will also be detected by a proprietary machine learning model that looks for patterns of user activity associated with ransomware. This means that Protect can potentially detect new ransomware that hasn't been seen before (aka zero-day).

  • FIDO2/WebAuthn multi-factor authentication: Users authenticated using Protects built-in credentials can now utilize FIDO2/WebAuthn hardware security keys to protect their account further. In the future, we will extend this protection to Connect-authenticated users.
