SD-WAN Evolved

Flexible Connectivity and Control

Link Your Remote and Branch Sites Wherever They Are

Sophos XG Firewall and SD-RED enable you to connect sites across your geographically-distributed network.

XG Firewall Enables Your SD-WAN Goals

Replace expensive MPLS connections with lower-cost SD-WAN. XG Firewall integrates the features you need to enable your SD-WAN connectivity, quality, security, and continuity goals.

  • Connect for Less

    XG Firewall lets you take advantage of less-expensive internet connectivity options such as DSL, cable, and 3G/4G/LTE.

  • Optimize Application Performance

    Unlike MPLS which introduces latency by backhauling traffic from remote sites, Sophos SD-WAN connects directly to the internet for faster access to cloud applications.

  • Stay Protected

    XG Firewall delivers industry-proven security against malware, ransomware, intrusions, and other threats across your entire network.

  • Business Continuity

    Utilize redundant connections to the same, or different, ISPs to handle routing, failover, and session preservation in the event of an outage.

SD-RED: Zero-Touch Edge and Branch Connectivity

SD-RED makes extending your secure network to all your remote locations easy and affordable. It requires no technical skills at the remote site. Simply enter the SD-RED device ID into your XG Firewall and ship it. As soon as it’s plugged in and connected to the internet, our provisioning service automatically connects it to your firewall and establishes a secure, dedicated VPN tunnel. And there’s no added licensing cost for SD-REDs – it’s included in your XG Firewall Network Protection License.

  • Zero-touch auto provisioning enables deployment by non-technical staff

  • Secure VPN tunnel connectivity with your XG Firewall from anywhere via our lightweight robust Layer 2 SD-RED tunnel
