Sophos UTM: Version 9.6 comming up

By | 27/03/2018

SOPHOS UTM 9.6 on it’s way 🙂

From the community a user posted this today from a web session, look really promising 🙂

UPDATE: 5/9-2018:
Was told today from a reliable source, that IKEv2 will never come to the UTM, as XG is the way to go. I will certainly not come in 9.6 and 9.7 looks like it’s gonna be the last firmware for UTM…. (NOT confirmed by Sophos)

    Would you happen to have any new info about 9.6? Will it enter beta anytime soon or?

      Hi, the latest thing they told me, was in june 2018, but it was only a slight promise, I think it is very close now, but summer is here with vacations and so on, so maybe they will delay it further. But looking forward to IKEv2 🙂

          Jeps, men det ligner den allerede er smuttet lidt, men det plejer også at være sådan 😀
          Nu går der nok “sommerferie” i den.

            Fik dette svar from deres produktmanager 29/8:
            “We are still preparing for the beta, I do not have a fixed date as of yet. We are looking at next month for the beta start.”

            Nu kan jeg se på community’et, at IKEv2 måske slet ikke kommer med i UTM 9.6… :-O

    I agree Martin IKEV2 is holding us back with AZURE functionality with ADFS drops between site and AZURE having to managed by VPN OFF – VPN ON.

    it is weird that sophos promoting XG Series but they continue to add good features to UTM9. Why they don’t add lets encrypt support first to XG Series?

      Well… I can not say that I do not agree, but it’s two different branches 🙂
      Heard yesterday, from a reliable source, that IKEv2 will NEVER come to the UTM 🙁
