NG Firewall v12

Monitor Everything, from Anywhere, with 360° Dashboard.

NG Firewall version 12 provides radically improved administrative interface experience, with a revolutionary, responsive dashboard unlike anything available from competitors. Custom configurable widgets give you unprecedented visibility into and control over the traffic on your network—and the dashboard can be accessed anytime, anywhere from any internet-enabled device.

We have a variety of version 12 video resources to help you with upgrading, understanding the new features, as well as deep-dives into the new Dashboards and reporting capabilities. You can find all the version 12 video resources here.

360° Dashboard
The dashboard is a new way to look at the data available in the Reports app, as well as acting as a single pane of glass providing security alerts and insight into system performance. Some of the pre-configured widgets available in the dashboard include:

  • System and hardware information
  • Network interfaces
  • CPU load, memory resources, server resources
  • Hosts & devices
  • Sessions
  • Alert events
  • Web Filter usage
  • Bandwidth Control top hostnames

 
Add to or replace these widgets with custom widgets you create using any of the data available in Reports.

Version 12 also brings a fresh look to the administrative interface which is now simpler, cleaner, faster and more responsive on mobile devices. This enables busy IT administrators to keep tabs on their network anytime, anywhere directly from their smartphones. There are now four global tabs available in the administrative interface: Dashboard, Apps, Config, and Reports. These tabs provide quick, easy access to all reporting and management features.

Untangle CloudTM
With version 12, Untangle has further extended the capabilities of the NG Firewall platform to integrate with the Untangle Cloud, an intelligence infrastructure that powers the onsite instances of NG Firewall with global insights from threat intelligence metadata. Virus Blocker is the first app to utilize the Untangle Cloud, performing a cloud scan concurrently with a local scan, resulting in greater protection against zero day and emerging threats. Additionally, version 12 uses the Untangle Cloud to improve email deliverability, ensuring that administrative alerts aren’t missed.

Version 12 Major Features
In addition to the 360° Dashboard and the integration with the Untangle Cloud, version 12 also includes these major  features:

  • Device awareness for Internet of Things security. Version 12 adds a Device List which tracks devices on the network by MAC address and gathers pertinent data about them, enabling administrators to create rules and alerts to manage them.
  • Faster Reports, now with Google Drive storage. Version 12 logs five times the number of events per second on the same hardware and features Google Drive integration for offsite data storage for daily logs as well as configuration backup.
  • Greater support for third party hardware. This allows customers to choose between using their own servers or a turnkey Untangle appliance.

 
Other Updates

  • HTTPS Inspector has been renamed SSL Inspector. It now scans SMTP over SSL, enabling Spam Blocker, Phish Blocker and other apps to inspect this traffic.
  • IPsec VPN now has the ability to create GRE tunnels (normal and encrypted with IPsec) to remote sites.
  • Modernization and improved usability of the Spam Blocker email quarantine interface.

Untangle NG Firewall version 12 is available as a free download. Current Untangle customers will be able to upgrade seamlessly at no charge.
