    Customer Action If connectivity from your network to the Web Security Service is regulated by firewall rules, these rules must be adjusted to allow traffic to pass to the new VIP. In addition, please ensure that any sourced-based access controls applied by you or your vendors are updated to reflect the new source IP network to ensure WSS traffic can pass unencumbered.

    Customers connecting via IPSec may connect to the new VIP immediately. The old VIP will only be available for the next 60 days and will be decommissioned on August 20, 2019
