Overview

Advanced protection made simple

Most firewall products make you set up and manage policies across multiple modules or screens. Not Sophos. We provide a powerful unified policy model that allows you to manage, view, filter, and sort all your user, application and network policies on a single screen.

More-in-one protection

You get all the next-gen firewall features you need plus features you can’t get anywhere else - including Sophos' revolutionary Security Heartbeat, full web application firewall, and complete email anti-spam, encryption and DLP. No extra hardware. No extra cost. Simply choose what you want to deploy.

On-box reports included as standard

With hundreds of built-in reports you’ll know exactly what’s happening with your users and your network. You get detailed reports as standard, stored locally with no separate tools required. And our unique User Threat Quotient reports show you which of your users are putting your security at risk.

Sophos XG Firewalls Stack

Unrivaled Insight, Simplicity and Security

  • The Sophos XG Firewall will block even unknown threats with it's comprehensive suite of advanced protection which includes a Web Application Firewall, Sandboxing, Dual AV, IPS, ATP, Web and Application Control, Anti-phishing and more.
  • Automatically responds to incidents by instantly identifying and isolating infected systems until they can be cleaned up
  • Exposes hidden risks on your network including unknown apps, top risk users, advanced threats, suspicious payloads and much more.

Potent, powerful … fast

We’ve engineered XG Firewall to deliver outstanding performance. Our appliances are built using Intel multicore technology, solid-state drives, and accelerated inmemory content scanning. In addition Sophos FastPath packet optimization technology ensures you’ll always get maximum throughput.

Simply manage multiple firewalls

Sophos Firewall Manager provides a single console for the complete central management of multiple Sophos XG Firewalls. And if you also want to consolidate reporting across multiple XG, SG, and Cyberoam appliances then with Sophos iView, you can.

Security features you can’t get anywhere else

XG Firewall includes a number of innovations that not only makes your job a lot easier, but also ensures your network is more secure.

A revolution in advanced threat protection - Sophos Synchronized Security

An industry first, Synchronized Security links your endpoints and your firewall to enable unique insights and coordination. Security Heartbeat relays Endpoint health status and enables your firewall to immediately identify and respond to a compromised system on your network. The firewall can isolate systems until they can be investigated and cleaned up. Another Synchronized Security feature, Dynamic App Identification, also enables the firewall to query the endpoint to determine the source of unknown traffic on the network.

Sophos Control Center

Patented Layer-8 identity control

User identity takes enforcement to a whole new layer with our patented Layer-8 identity based policy technology enabling user level controls over applications, bandwidth and other network resources regardless of IP-address, location, network or device. It literally takes firewall policy to a whole new layer.

Policy templates get you protected fast

Pre-defined policy templates let you protect common applications like Microsoft Exchange or SharePoint quickly and easily. Simply select them from a list, provide some basic information and the template takes care of the rest. It sets all the inbound/ outbound firewall rules and security settings for you automatically - displaying the final policy in a statement in plain English.

Automated user risk reports

The Sophos User Threat Quotient (UTQ) indicator is a unique feature which provides actionable intelligence on user behavior. This enterprise firewall correlates each user’s surfing habits and activity with advanced threat triggers and history to identify users with risk-prone behavior.

Flexible deployment, no compromise

Unlike our competitors whether you choose hardware, software, or virtual we don’t make you compromise - every feature is available on every model and form-factor.
