Does this release pertain to me?
The Fireware 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.
Reminder: AV Signatures ending for 11.x releases
As first announced last July, WatchGuard will begin to discontinue support for AV signatures for the older AVG engine in Fireware 11.x by April 15th 2018. To receive the signature updates for protection against the latest threats and maintain adequate defense against malware using the GAV service, customers must upgrade to a 12.x version of Fireware. After April 15th, WatchGuard may continue to deliver some signature updates for 11.x firmware versions for a few months, but frequency will decline and security efficacy will not be guaranteed to the same levels as 12.x firmware.
