Faster, more scalable Wi-Fi for our Sophos UTM customers

As more solutions move to the cloud, the need for better, more flexible connectivity grows. Switching your Wi-Fi management to Sophos Central is not only a way to get better performance – it’s also your path to the latest features and technology for a truly scalable wireless experience.

Synchronized Security With
Better Visibility and Control

Sophos Central offers a number of features not available in Sophos UTM today. For example, our APX Series access points with Security Heartbeat™ give you a path to Synchronized Security functionality without changing your firewall.

  • Monitor the health status of Wi-Fi connected Endpoint and Mobile devices
  • Restrict access for non-compliant or infected devices
  • Get insight into threats on and to your Wi-Fi networks with rogue AP detection

  • Enhanced configuration options for channel and band usage optimization
  • Benefit from features such as band steering, airtime fairness, and social login for simpler access to your guest hotspots
