WatchGuard Scare tactics - really? I mean, really?
I assume that I am not the only one who got a whole new email from WG today about firmware and what not on devices I manage. They also send that email to everyone who is on our IT team and on and on - NOT OKAY. They indicate the last four digits of serial numbers (oh well) - and even have a device that says :
_"We have identified (**X**) Fireboxes with these serial numbers (last 4 digits displayed) that require a software upgrade: ---- | -4 | -4 | -5 | -7 | -B | -8 | -A | -A | -A | -7...............
We have identified 1 Firebox with this serial number (last 4 digits displayed) that requires a software upgrade AND has open management ports: -B "
Firmware, none of WG business. Heck we still have production T35's that have not had a real update in forever. Then, the one supposedly with open Managment Ports - false. I just looked at it. There are simply no ways to access that device that differs from any of my other devices.
I would love to know what the end game here is...more sales? More subscriptions? More cloud-based garbage? I don't get it -
