Migration action for TDR Integration into WatchGuard Cloud

Profile picture for user rarroyo

Greetings, WatchGuard Partners!


We would like to inform you that before you can manage accounts and licenses for Threat Detection and Response (TDR), you are required to perform a one-time migration procedure. During this migration, you manually link an existing WatchGuard Cloud Tier-2 account to an existing TDR Managed child account. During these first few weeks of releasing TDR 6.0.0, we have had reports of usability issues in the migration process, which we have greatly improved with the 6.0.1 and 6.0.2 releases that are now available. When you first browse to the Migrate TDR page, you...

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. We are now announcing that the old Cyren engine will be retired later this year. 


Does this notice apply to me? 
This notice only applies to customers that use spamBlocker. If you do not use the spamBlocker...

  • Inventory Management – You can assign...

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...
