Sophos UTM Manager 4.102 Released

We have made available an Up2Date for our Sophos UTM Manager. UTM Manager is your tool for centrally monitoring, maintaining, and configuring multiple Sophos UTM installations. This is an enhancement that adds some improvements for the newly-introduced MSP program licensing and billing system. If you offer managed services (or are looking to start) and are interested in signing up as an MSP, you should contact your sales representative at Sophos.

*A note about old SUM versions: SUM 4.1 is a new branch built upon a significantly evolved platform than SUM 4.0. As a result, if you are running SUM 4.0 and wish to move to SUM 4.1, you will need to restore a backup file into a new SUM 4.1 installation. Up2Date from SUM 4.0 -> 4.1 is not/will not be possible.

Read on for extended release information.

An important note about accessing SUM for the first time: There are two different “admin” GUI’s – The traditional WebAdmin on port 4444 (eg. https://x.x.x.x:4444) is used for configuring the device, user accounts, and other administrative functions for the installation itself. The Gateway Manager on port 4422 (Eg. https://x.x.x.x:4422) is used to access the management, monitoring, reporting, and configuration of your connected sites. The Gateway Manager is where you will spend the majority of your time once you have SUM setup.

Once SUM is initially setup, (and with your UTM installations configured to connect to SUM) upon login to the Gateway Manager you will see the overview and status information for your connected installations. Besides information and monitoring there are many configuration features; you can define network and service objects, firewall rules, or web protection profiles, then issue them to some (or all) of your UTMs. Choose to make a VPN tunnel between two sites via a quick wizard, and run aggregated reports for any combination of locations.
