17.07 Release Notes

The 17.07 release continues the expansion of DivvyCloud’s AWS support. Specifically, we now support AWS Elastic File System Service (EFS), a shared file storage solution, as a Resource type and with that support comes relevant capabilities with Insights, filters, and Bots.

In addition, DivvyCloud now supports the ability to encrypt and lock down AWS S3 buckets via the UI and automatically via BotFactory. In an environment when data exposure is repeatedly in the headlines, this capability is a powerful tool in safeguarding corporate data.
