We have 4 sophos xg firewall in our internal network. 3 weeks ago we decided to migrate them to 18.5 MR3. after that we couldn't get update from our SFM specially for IPS signature. for more information we can update these module from internet but this part of our network doesn't have internet access. what can we do about that problem. should we update sfm? any product released instead of sfm?

first of all thanks for your response. second of all it's kind offline update but I need a product like sfm. offline update needs more human resource to check devices and updates.
You can configure SFM with the following doc: https://docs.sophos.com/nsg/sophos-firewall/18.5/Help/en-us/webhelp/onlinehelp/AdministratorHelp/Administration/SophosFirewallManager/SFM/index.html
SFM is end of life.
of course I know SFM is end of life. so what should we do for Internal Firewalls that doesn't have internet connection?
How do you manage those firewalls in the first place? Do you use Airgap? The firewall will deactivate itself after 90 days?
based on a schedule we connect the firewall to internet and syc the license. every 85 days. but about update we dont have any solution now
