McAfee® Web Gateway 7.8.2.27 is provided as a main release. It resolves issues present in previous releases.

Hardware firmware upgrade

If you are using a Thales hardware component for running a Hardware Security Module (HSM) with Web Gateway, make sure that you are also using the appropriate firmware.

The Web Gateway repository provides nfast-driver version 12.40 for running the Thales HSM component.

If your monitor and module firmware does not support this driver version, you must obtain the required firmware version from Thales and perform a firmware upgrade before upgrading to a new Web Gateway version.

For more information about running a Hardware Security Module (HSM) with Web Gateway, see the McAfee 10.0.x Product Guide.
