Fireware XTM 11.9.4 and WSM 11.9.4 
Fireware OS 11.9.4 and WSM 11.9.4 are now available. This maintenance release includes many bug fixes and several new enhancements. The Release Notes list all resolved issues and new enhancements in the software.
Key Highlights:

  • New Guest Services capability enables the creation of temporary accounts for hotspot access. Ideal for hotels and retail stores to provide internet access for their visitors and customers. A new guest administrator role and user interface enable front line staff to manage and create the accounts.
  • Selective inspection or bypass of encrypted web traffic (HTTPS DPI) via domain name or web category. Administrators now have more flexibility, allowing them to bypass DPI inspection of known good sites that need to remain private, such as online banking or financial applications.
  • Diagnostic report output of Branch Office VPN configurations helps with quick troubleshooting and fixing of any tunnel issues.
  • SSLv3 is disabled by default to protect against man in the middle attacks that could exploit the Poodle vulnerability (CVE-2014-3566).
  • Many bug fixes to improve the scalability and reliability of Single Sign-On.
  • Support for /31 and /32 subnets on external interfaces, which are commonly used in regions with shortages of IPv4 IP addresses.
  • WSM support for the new Firebox M400 and M500 models.

Full details of all changes including screenshots of new user interface are provided in the What’s New in 11.9.4 presentation.
