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
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.
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
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.
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.
With Sophos Wireless you can manage your wireless networks alongside other Sophos solutions or use our Sophos Central management platform solely for wireless network setup and control.
