The Management > Up2Date > Overview tab provides a quick overview whether your system is up-to-date. From here, you can install new firmware and pattern updates.

Update Progress

Once an update is started, you can see the update progress if you click on the AWS Management Console link in the Firmware section.


If you have Sophos UTM on AWS instances running in Amazon Marketplace, available Sophos UTM on AWS and template updates will be displayed here. Manual changes on the template will be overwritten by an update. If you want to keep them, you need to perform a manual stack update through the CloudFormation console.

Note – For more information on manual stack updates, see the Sophos Knowledge Base.

Available Firmware Up2Dates


The Pattern section shows the current version of the installed patterns. If you have selected Manual on the Configuration tab, you can see a Update Patterns Now button. Use this button to download and install new patterns if available.

Note – The current pattern version does not need to be identical with the latest available pattern version in order for the Sophos UTM on AWS unit to be working correctly. A deviation between the current and the latest available pattern version might occur when new patterns are available, which, however, do not apply to the unit you are using. What patterns are downloaded is dependent on your settings and hardware configuration. For example, if you do not use the intrusion prevention feature of Sophos UTM on AWS, newly available IPS patterns will not be installed, thus increasing the divergence between the currently installed and the latest available pattern version.
