Attention iPad and Mac Users
Posted by Jim Giseburt on 20 September 2019 01:56 PM
Your Cipafilter firmware needs to be updated to version 11.2.2 to accommodate Apple's new security requirements for TLS server certificates.  Please see:  Requirements for trusted certificates in iOS 13 and macOS 10.15.

iPadOS 13 will be released September 24th.  This is earlier than Apple's previously announced date of September 30th.

macOS 10.15 will be released in October.

Please contact your Cipafilter support team to get your firmware updated.

Introducing Cipafilter 11.2
Posted by Jim Giseburt on 19 July 2019 09:42 AM
Our team is excited to introduce the latest version of Cipafilter!  We've worked hard to bring you the best in firewall, filtering, and reporting technology.

SSL tarpit

Historically, a common performance issue has been the repeated flooding of invalid HTTPS connections by unauthenticated or misconfigured devices.  Cipafilter 11.2 can now proactively defend itself by detecting abusive devices and temporarily slowing them down, preserving the performance of valid connections and your network.

Web-management improvements

A number of Web-management pages have been enhanced, including Network Diagnostics, Log Viewer, Firmware Updates, and Super Whitelist.  List entries on Group Permissions and other pages now support simple wildcards.  Other minor visual and organizational improvements appear throughout the interface.

SSL error reporting

Successfully implementing SSL decryption is the key to making the most of your Cipafilter, but it occasionally causes difficulties with legacy devices or sites.  Our new SSL error reporting can help you quickly track down and address these issues.

More Web-reporting improvements

Many more improvements have been made to Web reporting — site favicons, improved search reporting, improved auto-complete, and more.

Request an upgrade

Due to the expected high volume of requests, we will be rolling out upgrades in waves to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.  Contact Cipafilter Support today to request a firmware upgrade date and take advantage of these new features.
