Available for All XTM Appliances

WatchGuard is excited to announce the general release of Fireware XTM v11.6.3 and WatchGuard System Manager v11.6.3. This release demonstrates our continuing commitment to delivering high quality products to our customers, with a significant number of bug fixes and support for a couple of key enhancements.

You can install Fireware XTM OS v11.6.3 on any WatchGuard XTM device, including 2 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, 8 Series, XTM 1050, and XTM 2050 devices.

11.6.3 includes a large number of bug fixes, covering many different areas of Fireware and WSM. For more information, see the Resolved Issues section of our Release Notes.

In addition to bug fixes, this release enables support for WatchGuard’s new RapidDeploy feature. With RapidDeploy, network administrators who manage distributed enterprises can easily activate and deploy XTM devices in remote locations without the need for dedicated IT staff available at the site — saving time and money.


Note: RapidDeploy only works with XTM devices that ship with Fireware XTM v11.6.3 or higher pre-installed. A RapidDeploy-capable device will have a cloud “Ready” sticker on its shipping carton.


We’ve also added automatic feature key synchronization as a new option for all XTM devices. You can configure your appliance to automatically download the latest feature key when it’s close to expiration.


For more information about the enhancements included in Fireware XTM v11.6.3, see the “What’s New in Fireware XTM v11.6.3” [PPT file] PowerPoint presentation.
