We've just released UTM version 9.7 MR19 (9.719). As this is a regular maintenance update it will be released in three phases:

Details of this release, along with previous releases, can be found on our official release notes page.

Along with a number of bug fixes and security improvements, you may notice one visible change - if you are using one of our older, end-of-life AP-series Wifi access points, the UI will display a message reminding you that they are end of life.

We published the lifecycle schedules for our AP models some time ago, and eventually delayed the event to 31 December 2023 as announced here on the Sophos Community. Although we expect these devices will continue to work for the foreseeable future, we will not be publishing any further updates to the access point firmware, even in the event that security issues are discovered.

Create and use encrypted backups in AWS

You can now create and use encrypted backups on your Sophos UTM instances running in AWS. This is an AWS update.
