This highly anticipated release has had the fastest uptake of any release in our UTM history.
Sophos UTM version 9.1 was made Generally Available to all customers last week and thousands of customers have already successfully upgraded and begun to benefit from all the new features.
We have just launched our new Remote Ethernet Device, the Sophos RED 50.
In response to market demand for Next Generation Firewall capabilities, we have just launched two enhanced high-end Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances, Sophos UTM 525 and 625. Both models are ideal for larger organisations that require greater throughput speeds and more flexible deployment options. The Sophos UTM 525 and 625 are both based on the latest Intel Sandy Bridge server technology (using Intel Multi-Core Xeon CPUs) for optimum performance.
Today we have released ASG 7.513 for those customers still using this old version. This Up2Date is designed to provide an announcement that only a few days is left before ASG 7 sunsets as part of the End-of-Life Announcement ( http://www.astaro.com/en-uk/blog/up2date/ASGV7EOL ). Package details are found by reading on
We have started to spread ASG Up2Date 8.308, which finalizes the process for one-touch upgrading to UTM 9 for supported appliances by solving a few issues and polishing the operation across all remaining models. Note that HA/Clustering systems are not yet supported and will unlock at a later date in early 2013. As part of the adjustments, you now need to be at ASG 8.308 to perform the UTM 9 one-touch upgrade, so install this release before attempting, as version 8.306 and 8.307 will not be allowed to upgrade anymore
With this video, you’re going to learn how to secure your FortiGate unit’s wifi networks, allowing only authorized users to access the network and the web. Securing your network will prevent unwanted traffic, and allow you to monitor and track usage from client devices, by using DHCP to assign each one a unique IP address.
Following the release of an Up2Date for our Version 8 line, we also have a release for Astaro Security Gateway Version 7 which is designed to address a connectivity issue with SwissCom DSL that was introduced due to changes by that ISP. We'll also take this chance to address some published vulnerabilites for SSL and fix a few bugs. Keep in mind that ASG V7 is due to sunset at the end of this year in December 2012 and will be end-of-life at that time
Over the past few weeks, hordes of strange and frightening monsters invaded our website. Fortunately only in a metaphorical sense – however they would have had a day thanks to our Complete Security package which eliminates all threats thoroughly
