Late last week we released version 188.8.131.52 of Sophos Web Appliance to all customers. This is the final update in the process of rolling out version 4.3 to all customers.
Version 4.3 of the Web Appliance adds a few new features along with an upgrade to the base Operating System to ensure that the latest security fixes continue to be easily available to you.
One of the changes made is an update to the communications protocols used by Sandstorm features. The changes improve security of communications and also enable more flexibility in responses. If you are using Sandstorm, you should upgrade to version 4.3 as soon as possible to avoid potential issues as our older services are turned down.
If you have tried Sandstorm before, but opted not to buy it, version 4.3 is a great opportunity to try Sandstorm again. We have reset the Free Trial status for all appliances and you can try Sandstorm for another 30 days by clicking the link on the Dashboard.
Other Highlights of the release include:
We also fixed a bunch of defects and security issues.
