Fireware 12.1.3 General Availability
WatchGuard is pleased to announce the General Availability (GA) of Fireware 12.1.3 and WSM 12.1.3. These maintenance releases don’t include new features, but they provide resolution to many issues that have been reported by customers. WatchGuard partners and customers should review the Release Notes to see a full list of fixed issues prior to upgrading.

Does this release pertain to me?
The Fireware 12.1.3 maintenance release applies to all Firebox T, Firebox M, and XTM appliances, except XTM 21/21-W, 22/22-W, or 23/23-W, XTM 505, 510, 520, and 530 which have reached the End of Life. Firebox 12.2 is only available for Firebox appliances.

Reminder: AV Signatures ending for 11.x releases
WatchGuard announced last July that we would end support for AV signatures for the older AVG engine in Fireware 11.x by April 15th 2018. WatchGuard may continue to deliver some signature updates for 11.x firmware versions for a few more weeks, but frequency will decline and security efficacy will not be guaranteed to the same levels as 12.x firmware.  Customers must upgrade to a 12.x version of Fireware to receive the signature updates for protection against the latest threats and to maintain adequate defense against malware using the GAV service.

Software Download Center
Firebox and XTM appliance owners with active support subscriptions can obtain the Fireware 12.1.3 update without additional charge by downloading the applicable packages from the WatchGuard Software Download Center.
