What's New in Fireware 11.12


WatchGuard's latest Fireware® OS release gives all WatchGuard Firebox appliances a host of new features.

  • Geolocation: Geolocation capabilities allow our customers to prevent malware communication and attacks from countries where they never have any need for legitimate business communication – a simple but powerful way to enhance network security.

  • Dynamic Branch Office VPN Tunnels to Microsoft Azure: Dynamic BOVPN tunnels to Microsoft Azure to enable secure communication in hybrid cloud environments.

  • ConnectWise Integration: The release of Fireware 11.12 has enabled WatchGuard to extend its Technology Partner Ecosystem to a leader in professional services automation – ConnectWise. The WatchGuard-ConnectWise certified integration greatly enhances the services that WatchGuard Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) deliver to their customers.

  • IPv6 Support: Fireware 11.12 includes support for all WatchGuard security services and proxies in IPv6 environments.

  • Gateway Wireless Controller: The latest updates to our UTM wireless controller include auto channel selection to enable smoother deployments without channel conflict, and a new repeater mode that allows access points to communicate over the air without a physical Ethernet connection.

  • FireCluster: If your ISP provides external-facing interface IP addresses by DHCP, you can now enable an active/passive FireCluster to provide high availability.
