AWS Firewall Manager now allows you to enable versioning for AWS WAF managed rule groups and to select a specific version of an AWS WAF managed rule group when configuring your AWS WAF policy using Firewall Manager.

After you enable versioning for an AWS WAF managed rule group, you will be able to select a version number for the AWS WAF managed rule group deployed as a part of your WAF policy. When you deploy a specific version of a rule group, automatic version updates to the rule group are paused, and the managed rule group will remain on the selected version until it reaches end of life. This feature enables you to test the new rule group versions safely before deploying them across your organization.

AWS Firewall Manager is a security management service that acts as a central place for you to configure and deploy firewall rules across accounts and resources in your organization. With Firewall Manager, you can deploy and monitor rules for AWS WAF, AWS Shield Advanced, VPC security groups, AWS Network Firewall, and Amazon Route 53 Resolver DNS Firewall across your entire organization. Firewall Manager ensures that all firewall rules are consistently enforced, even as new accounts and resources are created.

To get started, see the AWS Firewall Manager documentation for more details and the AWS Region Table for the list of regions where AWS Firewall Manager is currently available. To learn more about AWS Firewall Manager, its features, and its pricing, visit the AWS Firewall Manager website.
