This highly anticipated release has had the fastest uptake of any release in our UTM history. In the 6 weeks since release, we have gained over 29,000 active v9.1 installations. We are aware of a number of technical issues and wanted to provide some information on how and when we are addressing these issues. There are two planned UTM 9.1 maintenance releases – the first (v9.102) is available now as an up2date package in the UTM console and the second (v9.103) will be available via Sophos Technical Support this week and made more generally available soon. Between these two updates, the majority of the reported issues are addressed (specific technical details can be found at the end of this message). Read on for all the details.
We have released UTM 9.102. This Up2Date targets a specfic security fix for IPv6 and should be applied with high priority at your convenience. We also have addressed an issue in the HTTP proxy which could cause high CPU usage on some installations. As this is a fast-release to address a security issue, some of the fixes that may have been previously communicated to you as targeted for 9.102 will now be addressed in 9.103 which remains on track for release shortly. (Simply a naming/version bump.) Details for UTM 9.102 can be found by reading on.
This is your official reminder that Version 8 of Astaro Security Gateway will be end-of-life on December 31st 2014. If you are not running any Astaro Security Gateway Version 8 installations, you are unaffected by this announcement and can disregard it. If you still maintain an active ASG V8, it is important that you read on for what this end-of-life means for you. You have the opportunity to migrate to UTM 9 – our most powerful version ever. Some older appliances may not be able to fully take advantage of all our new features introduced in UTM 9, like our unmatched HTML5 clientless VPN portal, Endpoint Protection with Web Control (9.1), Wireless Security, and hundreds of other features that have been introduced and upgraded since ASG V8. You can obtain a brand new appliance model at a discount via our Hardware Refresh Program! Read on for more details.
We have released an update for those running Astaro Security Gateway V8. Version 8.310 is a bugfix release that stabilizes your installation and improves the Web Filtering and RED along with some other fixes. For more information, read on!
