Make Your SD-WAN Goals a Reality
Sophos Firewall and our Secure Access portfolio of products, all managed and orchestrated through Sophos Central, enable your SD-WAN networking goals simply and economically while offering zero-impact response to ISP disruptions and outages, even in the most challenging environments.
Powerful SD-WAN Link Management
Sophos Firewall supports SD-WAN load balancing across multiple links using round robin weighting or session persistence strategies. Sophos Firewall also enables performance-based SLA link selection and routing based on real-time packet loss, jitter and latency with zero-impact rerouting of application traffic when transitioning between links.
SD-Branch Orchestration Made Easy
Extending your network to remote locations or branch offices with our SD-RED remote edge devices couldn’t be simpler – in fact they are zero-touch and orchestrating your SD-WAN overlay network from Sophos Central is a simple point-and-click exercise.
Xstream FastPath Acceleration
The new Xstream Flow Processors in all XGS Series appliances accelerate SD-WAN IPsec VPN tunnel flows taking full advantage of the hardware crypto capabilities in XGS Series appliances. They can also offload and accelerate other important trusted traffic from the cloud.
Zero-Impact SD-WAN Link Selection
Even the best ISPs have occasional disruptions. When that happens, you want your SD-WAN solution to seamlessly transition sessions to your healthy WAN connections without noticeable disruptions to VoIP, team meetings, and other important application traffic.
Real-Time Performance Monitoring
Sophos Firewall is automatically monitoring and reporting the performance of your ISP connections, including packet loss, jitter, and latency metrics.
When WAN link performance takes a hit, Sophos Firewall automatically reroutes traffic to a better performing link, including active sessions with zero impact and no disruption to users or their applications.
SD-WAN Orchestration Made Easy
A game-changer for anyone managing multiple sites.
If you’ve ever set up more than a couple of VPN tunnels between different sites, you know how time consuming and tedious this process can be. Sophos Central Orchestration makes interconnecting your SD-WAN overlay network in the cloud – a quick and easy task - from the cloud.
Setup full mesh, hub-and-spoke, or any type of SD-WAN overlay networks with full tunnel redundancy and fail-over with just a few clicks. You simply select what gets connected, and Sophos Central takes care of all the heavy lifting on the backend to automatically setup all the necessary tunnels and rules.
Remote and Branch Office Connectivity
Sophos Firewall and our suite of Secure Access products, including SD-RED (Remote Edge Devices) and Sophos Switch, enable you to build a flexible, affordable SD-WAN overlay network. Get set up quickly and easily, no matter what your where you're connecting, and manage it all through Sophos Central.
