A Crazy Six Months at Fastvue. Report Speed, Safeguarding, FortiGate and More!

The first half of 2019 has been a huge step forward for Fastvue. We finally finished an epic project that insanely increases report speed in Fastvue Reporter. We added Safeguarding sections to Fastvue Reporter's Internet Usage Reports making it super-simple for schools to identify students at risk of self-harm, extremism as well as generally nasty online behaviour. We also released our first new product in two years with Fastvue Reporter for FortiGate - now available as Beta. And we're not looking at slowing down any time soon!

When you have an active-passive Sophos UTM cluster, the configuration is synchronized between the nodes, but if the Master fails, it may not sync all the log data to the Slave node. From the WebUI, there is no method to view the files on the Slave device, yet those log files can contain information about the cause of the failure.
