v15.1.1 Build 1184 on May 25, 2020

MD5 Checksum: f4a98ec7be2d273e14e14ac78c94c285

Upgrade Considerations

To support new functionality mentioned herein, SOTI MobiControl's minimum system requirements have been updated to .NET Core 3.1 and Windows Server 2016.

The MobiControl installer will warn on upgrade if it detects Profiles with the Webroot powered "Web Filter" and/or "Antivirus" device configurations. Future upgrades will not be allowed unless all "Web Filter" configurations are transitioned to "SOTI Surf", and all Android device agents are upgraded to v13.5 or higher to continue support for Antivirus.

Please note: We strongly recommend following the standard IT change control practices and testing of product upgrades in pre-production environments.

Contact SOTI's Professional Services and Support Team or visit the product documentation for information on proceeding with your upgrade.
