This release includes a Debian Linux kernel update to version 4.9.0-11 that will require a reboot.
Because upgrading to NG Firewall 15.0 requires a reboot, consideration should be made on the timing for the upgrade to ensure it is done at a time when an upgrade followed by a reboot is acceptable.
Untangle NG Firewall 14.2 includes significant enhancements to web security and content filtering, the ability to synchronize users with Azure Active Directory, and enhancements to intrusion detection and prevention.
These capabilities provide network administrators in content-sensitive environments such as schools, libraries or social services to meet compliance requirements while safeguarding users.
Directory Connector has been updated to allow users to connect via Azure Active Directory. For those customers using Office365, they can now utilize their existing directory service with accounts, groups and policies already established. This saves customers time during deployment, general maintenance of user groups and policies, and when provisioning or off-boarding users.

Zero touch provisioning enables easy access and configuration of NG Firewall appliances, without requiring physical access to the appliance. This is an ideal scenario for MSPs who need to install and manage appliances for their clients without having to visit each client site. The appliance simply needs to be connected to the internet and the serial number provided to the MSP or IT admin for remote access to be initiated via Command Center. From there, the MSP or IT admin can set up the appliance to fit the needs of that location. The admin can also set up a template so that the appliance is immediately configured based on the template once it is connected and synced to Command Center, reducing management overhead and resulting in cost savings.
The Intrusion Prevention application has been updated for better performance and easier maintenance. The IPS engine is now using Suricata, instead of Snort, for improved technical performance and management. The Intrusion Prevention app now has automatic configuration for simplified setup and basic default settings. IT admins can go further to add additional rules, if necessary.
