UTM 9.001 Up2Date Released

Following the GA release of UTM 9, we have our first Up2Date available today. This is a bugfix release designed to enhance the stability and performance of your installation. For ASG V8 appliance users – work is progressing on the next Up2Date for that platform which will enable the one-touch migration for elligible platforms. As a reminder, due to the random and expansive nature of hardware chosen by our software-platform users, we will only offer one-touch migration for our official appliances. Software users should re-install UTM 9 and restore a backup file to migrate.

An entirely new (and very cool) demo platform for seeing and tinkering with UTM 9 is very close to launching. At that time the ASG V8 demo servers will be upgraded to UTM 9; the initial roll out of the new demo servers is targeted for later this week (or perhaps next week if needed). Read on for the extended details of UTM 9.001.
