New Features & Enhancements

New Ordered Firewall: Over the next few weeks, for all accounts we are migrating the firewall rules to the new ordered firewall.

  • The new ordered firewall is disabled after the migration, and you continue to use the previous firewall until you enable the new one.
  • After the migration, there is a popup warning message when admins save changes to the old firewall rules. You need to duplicate the changes to the new firewall rules.
  • Watch the video tutorial, and read about: the WAN Firewall, the Internet Firewall, and the migration process
