WatchGuard has posted major new software releases this month. We are pleased to announce that Fireware 11.9, WSM 11.9, and Dimension 1.2 are now available to download. WatchGuard’s newest releases give WatchGuard NGFW and UTM appliances – including XTM Series and Firebox T10 models – a host of new features. Highlights include:
APT Blocker – WatchGuard’s newest security module. Networks are vulnerable to advanced malware that relies on highly sophisticated detection evasion to hide their attacks. APT Blocker uses a cloud-based sandbox with full system emulation (CPU and memory) to detect and block advanced malware and zero day attacks that signature-only solutions miss.
WatchGuard Dimension™ is the award-winning security intelligence and visibility solution that is included at no charge with all WatchGuard network security solutions. Dimension 1.2 includes new reports for APT Blocker, performance enhancements, and translation into local languages.
Traffic Management: Fireware 11.9 enables administrators to preserve expensive Internet bandwidth connections for those business-critical applications that truly need it, with the ability to control and limit bandwidth use for applications, application categories, IP addresses, and VLANs.
Gateway Wireless Controller: A new interactive, graphical wireless coverage map helps administrators to quickly achieve the optimal arrangement and configuration of wireless access points in their buildings.
Plus many, many more enhancements including IPv6 dynamic routing, custom DLP rules, Q-Radar SIEM integration, and custom network zones. Full details including screenshots are provided in the presentations: What’s New in 11.9 and What’s New in Dimension 1.2.
