Firewall throughput has been increased on all XTM 5 and 8 Series models, by as much as 50% in some cases. Report Manager has been updated to include a dashboard and a single set of reports for both PCI and HIPAA. It now provides one-click access to information needed for compliance requirements.

The number of VLANs on XTM 3, 5 and 8 Series platforms has been increased. New diagnostic capabilities help users to troubleshoot VPN interoperability and connectivity issues.

New tools to help simplify the understanding and maintenance of policies as defined on the firewall, including On-line Policy Checker, which helps to quickly simulate and understand how traffic is handled through the firewall. Users can enter IP address and port combinations to determine which firewall rule is triggered and whether traffic will be allowed.
