    Central Management

    Sophos Wireless is easy to set up and deploy as part of your Sophos Central portfolio of cloud-managed security solutions.

    Built for Performance

    Our APX Series access points are custom-built to offer optimal performance and increased throughput at load.

    Increased Visibility

    With Sophos Wireless you always know the status of your Wi-Fi networks, access points, connecting clients, and the environment around you to identify potential risks or inappropriate use of your resources.

    Sophos SD-RED Remote Ethernet Devices

    Sophos SD-RED easily and affordably extends your secure network to other locations.

    • Auto provisioning enables deployment by non-technical staff.
    • Secure VPN tunnel connectivity with your XG Firewall from anywhere.
    • Selective routing options for any mix of VPN and local WAN access.
    • Enterprise encryption.
    • Our SD-RED models fit a variety of remote location and bandwidth needs, and can be enhanced with Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connectivity using optional modules or by adding APX Series access points.

    Plug-and-protect deployment

    It requires no technical skills at the remote site. As soon as it is plugged in and connected to the internet, the Sophos provisioning service automatically connects it to your firewall and establishes a secure, dedicated VPN tunnel.

    Flexible configuration

    Set up your SD-RED devices to tunnel all traffic from the remote location back to the firewall, controlling DHCP and other network elements of the remote network. Or you can choose to only route inter-office network traffic via your SD-RED, while enabling direct internet access from the remote location.

    Securely encrypted, centrally managed

    All data between the SD-RED and your Sophos firewall is encrypted using AES-256 levels. This provides you with a tamper- and hack-proof, secure connection. With central management for the latest XG and SG Series, protection is completely transparent across your distributed network and can be customised or replicated to suit your needs.

    Synchronised SD-WAN

    When managed through XG Firewall, Synchronized SD-WAN allows you to benefit from the power of Synchronized Security and XG Firewall’s integration with Sophos Intercept X to optimize WAN path selection for your important business applications with 100% reliability.

    Flexible Wi-Fi and WAN connectivity

    Optionally add a Wi-Fi-5 or 3G/4G module to provide connectivity for wireless clients or to use 3G/4G internet connections.
