Thank you Ed for the update about these new added featuer.

Is there any document can help us use these featuers? And is it coming in a new relase?

Hi abdulla.abusaif​,

Thank you for your question. All (or most) of the new features/options referenced in emurphy​'s message above are documented in Cb Defense User Guide​. Additionally, you can search The Knowledge Base - NEW for any gotchas, best practices, limitations, etc. We try to put out useful information as soon we learn about anything that might be helpful to the users of Cb Defense. For example, the new "Delay execute for cloud scan" setting may can an increase in Alerts under certain conditions, so we have Cb Defense: Observing increase in Alert(s) when "Delay Execute for Cloud Scan" is disabled to help explain that.

If you have any specific questions regarding any of the features found in the product, you may ask in The Lounge (be sure to post in 'Cb Defense' category) or file a new Support case as described in Create a Case in The Community and our team will assist.
