It’s time for another episode of Microsoft Patch Tuesday! Tell ‘em what they’ve won, Bob! A new caaaarrrrr! Wait. That’s not right. Sorry.
Perhaps it had been too long since Twitter was the center of the public attention. Drama junkies were treated to a triple-whammy of cyber news this week when miscreants hacked into the Twitter accounts of Jeep, Burger King and none other than the global hacker collective Anonymous. In an ironic twist of plot, the infamous hacker group’s Twitter account was apparently overtaken by rival hacktivists, according to the BBC.
Evasion techniques have existed ever since attacks were created, that’s no secret.
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
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.
Sophos UTM 9 expands the perimeter of protection to the endpoint, further strengthening its “protect everywhere” value proposition for customers. And integrated UTM (Unified Threat Management) means having a single solution that further reduces attack surfaces and plugs the gaps separate point solutions can create
We have successfully received accreditation under the MSPAlliance’s (MSPA) Vendor Accreditation Program (VAP).
I’m happy to announce our new Log Management service which will be available at the end of June with the ASG V8.200 update. You may like to bridge the gap and test the ASG Beta version which also includes Log Management – for free, of course! With Astaro Log Management, you are able to search all logs across all your systems with a single click, reducing troubleshooting time by up to 80%. The system can automatically alert administrators to repeated failed logins, application errors etc., so they are able to fix IT issues before users even notice
The main reason for this release is to make our “One-Touch Update to V8 for Appliances” available to all valid remaining ASG installations; notably those with Wireless Security enabled via Full Guard licensing and Stand-Alone licenses.
