AsyncOS 7.0.0-819 for Web is GA


Cisco is pleased to announce the General Availability (GA) of a new major release of AsyncOS 7.0.0-819 for Web to all customers. This release applies to all our Web Security Appliances (S-Series).

Please be advised that AsyncOS 7.1 for Web is expected to be available shortly. This release will contain all the functionality contained in 7.0 plus support for advanced reporting and tracking as well as support for centralized management of 7.0 features using a Cisco IronPort Security Management Appliance (M-Series). If you are using a M-Series device to manage your Web Security Appliances, you may want to wait for the availability of AsyncOS 7.1 for Web.

NOTE: If you do not have a valid Webroot feature key you may have some latency on your web browsing after upgrading. To fix this latency you need to go to "Web Reputation and filtering" page for the Access Policy and the Commit button will light up. Submit and commit the changes.
