A new Up2Date is available for Sophos UTM. Release 9.104 fixes some bugs and increases the stability of your UTM 9 installation. While you will get considerably more detailed information from our Wireless Protection we also changed behavior for the RED/VPN notifications. We have also improved the performance for DNS lookups in our Web Filter. Read on to see the whole list of changes.
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.

A new Up2Date is available for Sophos UTM. Release 9.103 fixes some bugs and increases the stability of your UTM 9 installation. We have adjusted the WebAdmin permissions for some of the User Management roles, and introduced some new performance tuning for Intrusion Protection which will be further improved on a continuing basis to optimize this area more precisely per-appliance. We have also adjusted some notifications around RED and VPN tunnels. Read on for the package specifics.
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!
Today we have released Sophos UTM Manager 4.1. This adds the necessary support for the new Sophos Managed Service Provider (MSP) program*. Later in 2013 we will then release SUM 4.2 which will include many new features for general use by all. SUM lets you centrally monitor, configure, and report on multiple Sophos UTM installations. It is offered completely free of charge, so whether you have two or over two-hundred UTM’s under your control, SUM is for you! Just download it and run it on your own hardware, almost any virtualization platform (Eg. VMware) or inside the Amazon Cloud using our pre-built AMI. If you have not yet had the chance, I’d invite you to try this product.
This version introduces the MSP features for licensing and billing, acts as platform upon which we can build more offerings in future releases, and fixes some bugs. Up2Date from SUM 4.000 is not yet possible, however as always you can restore your backup file into a new SUM 4.1 installation.
*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.

Further to our earlier post about some issues in UTM 9.100, and a soft-release of UTM 9.101 made last week, I’d like to inform you that within the next few hours we will GA release Up2Date 9.101 that stabilizes your UTM 9.100 release and offers several fixes for RED, Wireless, WebAdmin, and more while addressing some performance issues as well. You should apply this Up2Date with priority at your earliest opportunity once it has downloaded and shows up as available for installation in your WebAdmin. Read on for extended details of UTM 9.101.
