  • Web Policy enhancement
  • Application whitelisting and scopes
  • External Sharing visibility
    • Objective: Our External sharing model has evolved to address 2-tiers (Internal and affiliate) and 3-tiers (Internal, Affiliate and External). In order to map the external and internal sharing model with folders, through this feature in Web, visual indicators (Outgoing External, Outgoing Affiliate, Incoming External, Incoming Affiliate or Outgoing Affiliate, External) will be associated with folders depending upon whether the folder has been shared to or received from a trusted partner.
    • In Files, a user will see corresponding status under column ‘Type’ while an admin will see them in Manage Folders, under column ‘Shared’
    • As an example - For your tenant, under Incoming Shared Folder policy, if your partner is specified as an affiliate under Specific domains, then a folder received from partner will have status ‘Incoming Affiliate’ otherwise it will have status ‘Incoming External’.
    • Next to the status, tooltip is also displayed.
    • As part of phased roll-out, feature is ENABLED for a few tenants only.
