Synchronized Security

XG Firewall benefits from synchronized security – a best of breed security system where integrated products dynamically share threat, health, and security information.

It means that if your Sophos firewall identifies a compromised endpoint or server via Sophos’ patented Security Heartbeat, the infected machine is isolated and its network access revoked until clean-up can take place.

The whole process is automated and lightning quick. So you get faster, better protection against advanced threats.

“We consider Sophos XG appliances and Sophos Heartbeat software to be a significant innovation that can raise security performance standards for medium-sized organizations.”
