The latest Q1/18 release of Pulse Secure vWAF (version 4.9, build 43225) is available for download by registered customers. The focus of this release is to implement an updated user interface and branding following the acquisition by Pulse Secure, LLC. Highlights include:
Updated User Interface: This release introduces a new-style user interface for vWAF, including a new logo and branding for Pulse Secure, LLC.
Telemetry Capability: Pulse vWAF is able to collect and transmit feature-level usage data back to our support team, and to aid in improvement of future versions of products and related support. This information is anonymized and encrypted - for more information, see http://kb.pulsesecure.net/articles/Pulse_Secure_Article/KB43671/
Removal of DES/3DES ciphers: DES/3DES ciphers have been completely removed, and can no longer be used for WAF configuration. DES/3DES ciphers have been discouraged due to vulnerabilities such as CVE-2016-2183 and CVE-2016-6329.
