Some of the highlights in this release:

    • WildFire – The file blocking profile action list has been enhanced to include a "forward" action, which will copy and forward files matching the policy to the WildFire cloud-based malware detection service. WildFire currently supports Windows PE files (executable files), and will run submitted files in a cloud-based sandbox environment to analyze the sample for malicious behavior. An administrator can view reports of submitted samples through the WildFire web portal at, and can configure automated email reports. 
    • H.323 ALG Enhancements – The H.323 VoIP application-level gateway (ALG) has been enhanced to support dynamic prediction of media sessions (pinhole opening) based on the signaling data, as well as payload modification when performing address translation on the traffic allowing NAT/PAT traversal for H.323 VoIP traffic.
