Account Groups are now available in WatchGuard Cloud


WatchGuard Cloud’s newest platform feature, Account Groups, enables service providers to create groups with their existing managed accounts. Account groups can be used to assign operator permissions. On the Account Groups page, Account Groups are represented by folders you can add, delete, and move to organize your accounts. By default, a service provider’s My Account cannot be sorted into an account group and is only visible to operators with permissions to all accounts. Account groups created in WatchGuard Cloud are also available in...

Key points:
WatchGuard has posted new maintenance updates for Fireware 12.7 and earlier branches, 12.5.7 and 12.1.3. The new releases address some issues that have been fixed since the original 12.7 release. See details  in the Release Notes. WatchGuard is moving away from providing customer specific (CSP) builds, and we prefer to issue generally available Update releases that are provided to all for download.


These releases also include fixes to resolve internally detected security issues. These issues were found by our engineers, and not actively found in the wild. For the sake of not...

Profile picture for user bpatterson
Categories:

Fireware 12.7 is now generally available, with a new simple integration between Authpoint and the Firebox. This new integration of two key products in the WatchGuard portfolio makes it easier to set up strong multi-factor authentication for VPNs through the Firebox. Security and convenience make this bundle a powerful tool for zero-trust implementations.


Direct Integration with Authpoint
We can’t trust passwords. They can be shared. Written down. Captured. Guessed. Cracked. Stolen. 80% of breaches involve lost or stolen credentials. Systems should be secured with strong authentication that...

Categories:

We are excited to announce that the Self-Service Portal feature is now available in AuthPoint!


This feature gives the users autonomy to activate their own tokens, both mobile and hardware, by accessing their company’s IdP portal. Users that are enrolling for the first time and still do not have an active token, can activate it as part of the login flow on the IdP portal. Users that are already enrolled and have an active token can also activate a new mobile or hardware token after they have logged into the –MFA protected- IdP portal. A key benefit for the operators is that they don’t need...
