The smarter way to simple, secure Wi-Fi

Sophos Wireless provides a simple, effective way to manage and secure your wireless networks. Managed from Sophos Central, it is easy to deploy as a standalone product or as part of your portfolio of cloud-managed solutions

Installs fast with automatic setup and configuration

You can set up multiple wireless Access Points (APs) within minutes. They require no local configuration and will simply find the controller, retrieve their IP address via DHCP, and import the configuration. Devices automatically appear in the UTM/firewall interface where you can manually activate them.

Creates reliable networks for all areas

Our access points support a variety of deployment scenarios. They include models for desktop/wall mounting such as the entry-level AP 15 and the enterprise-grade AP 55 and AP 100. The AP 15C, 55C and 100C are smoke-detector style ceiling-mount and the AP 100X is suitable for outdoor use.

"What I really like about Sophos’ integrated wireless protection approach is that it frees our administrators from separately managing an expensive enterprise wireless solution."
Jason Richards, CEO, Vineyard Networks

Provides guest Wi-Fi and BYOD access

We give you secure, easy-to-manage guest access out-of-the-box–without extra appliances, licenses or complex configuration. And you can tailor the guest experience to suit your needs. Set bandwidth limits and content filtering as well as customizing the login page and vouchers to strengthen your company brand.

Wireless Network Intelligence

  • Getting insight into what's happening on your wireless networks is a daily struggle for many IT admins.
  • With Sophos Wireless you can easily identify which users and traffic are using the most bandwidth and take any necessary steps to improve performance.

Secure wireless and integrated network protection

To prevent unauthorized access Sophos uses the most advanced encryption and authentication standards available, including WPA2-Enterprise in combination with IEEE 802.1X (RADIUS authentication). And, our APs forward wireless traffic to the UTM or firewall, giving wireless clients the same level of security as if they were physically connected to the LAN. You can also choose to authenticate users based on their credentials from any back end server supported by our UTM and firewall for greater flexibility and control.

Security features you can’t get anywhere else

Sophos Wireless Central Management

Simple deployment and administration

Using the step-by-step guidance in the on-boarding wizard, creating networks, registering access points and adding sites is child’s play. Sophos' solution is built to be simple to use - even for non-wireless experts - but that doesn’t mean you forfeit functionality. Schedule firmware upgrades to keep your network up-to-date and deploy new features.

Increased visibility and control

See which traffic is using your bandwidth to optimize the performance of your Wi-Fi and alert you to potential unwanted use of your resources. With Sophos Wireless you’ll know exactly what’s happening with your users and your wireless networks to avoid behavior which could put your security at risk.

Secure guest access and hotspot setup

Provide controlled internet access for visitors, contractors and other guests on your network. Using a daily password or time-based voucher, you can customize guest access with your own terms of service and branding. Use enterprise-grade backend authentication for a seamless user experience.

Multi-site management and cloud scalability

One of the benefits of a cloud-managed wireless solution is scalability. Whether you have just one growing network, or multiple sites, extending your Wi-Fi is as simple as adding an additional access point. With our basic site planning tools you get a first impression of what your set-up will look like, before doing a more detailed site survey and plan.

Rogue AP Detection

Sophos' Rogue AP Detection will assist you in detecting issues from "impersonation attacks" like the "evil twins" one which attempts to trick your users into joining a network which is not safe. You can classify both untrusted, and trusted access points on or even close to your network.

Wireless Scalability

Your Sophos Wireless network is easy to extend by simply adding an additional Access Point. The scalability of Sophos' cloud-based architecture to is used to it's fullest so that you are able to adapt your network in a way that suits the needs of your business.
