Good to know improvement in V18, but still insufficient compared to market trend. SSLVPN & HTTPS admin access runs on TLS 1.3? VPN complications like analyzing logs, frequently tunnels breaks. RA VPN improvements, report improvements (hope it is quicker now as CFR is available), see we lose some security while using DPI, not sure what improved after decoupling NAT and FW rules. I know there is a challenge in creating individual NAT rule for every port of TCP & UDP.
