Planned upgrade of firewall

In the early hours of Thursday 21st April, RM will be carrying out some work to upgrade the firewalls. If this work doesn’t go ahead, the current version of the software on the firewalls will reach end of engineering support with the vendor. This means they will only provide fixes for industry wide critical issues and vulnerabilities. With this in mind, RM need to upgrade the software version to maintain full levels of vendor support.

RM and HfL have discussed this in detail and RM are confident that normal service will continue without any service disruption. RM and HfL will be fully staffed with the relevant resource should anything unforeseen occur. If you have any concerns or queries in relation to this work – either before, or after the upgrade has been carried out, please get in touch with the HfL Broadband Team.
