Note: Version 18.5 is currently available for the new XGS Series hardware. Version 18.5 for XG Series hardware, virtual, software, and cloud deployments is expected to be available shortly.
This release includes support for a new range of hardware appliances, the XGS Series.
All XGS Series next-generation firewalls have a dual-processor architecture, which combines a multi-core x86 CPU with a dedicated Xstream Flow Processor for hardware acceleration. The Xstream Flow Processor is a Network Processing Unit (NPU), which accelerates trusted traffic flows, freeing up resources on the host CPU for more resource-intensive tasks, such as TLS inspection and deep packet inspection.
Flexibility and performance enhancements
How long should we expect until the software solution will come?
When will v18.5 be available for the XG430. I've heard that it will allow the use of UPN rather than samaccountname attribute, is this correct?
Does this new version show IPv6 static leases? Does it use IPv6 FQDN?
Hello. When will ISO Image 18.5 be available? which kernel version is used?
Now early June, looking for an anticipated release date for older model XG hardware and home users?ian
