XG Firewall v17.1. Shine a light on the shadows in your IT security.

XG Firewall v17.1 is here...

XG Firewall v17.1 has arrived, and with it comes visibility to the dark corners of your network, along with some of your top requested features.

What’s New

The new Cloud Application Visibility widget provides at-a-glance insight into where your data is going in the cloud.

This feature turns XG Firewall into a Cloud Application Security Broker (CASB) to help you quickly identify shadow IT in the cloud, alert you to undesirable and unauthorized behavior, and give you the application control to manage it all in just a few clicks.
