Important spamBlocker Update
In June 2020, WatchGuard released a new version of Fireware that provided an updated spamBlocker engine which uses Cloudmark technology to replace the old Cyren engine. Response has been very positive and many customers and partners report significantly improved detection rates and fewer false positives after they upgraded to Fireware v12.5.4 or higher.

TDR Outage in EU

Profile picture for user rarroyo
Categories:

On 1 December 2020, the TDR EU AWS environment suffered from an intermittent outage which resulted in some Host Sensors being unable to contact ThreatSync. This seems to be linked to the deployment of new TDR infrastructure on the night of 30 November 2020. Despite Engineering's extensive efforts, the root cause of the connection issues could not be determined, and the deployment was reverted on 1 December 2020 at 7:30pm EST. Connectivity issues should be resolved with the reversion to previous environment infrastructure. As WatchGuard continues the analysis, we will postpone the deployment of...
