Choose How to Deploy

Choose the right appliance for your environment—is it hardware, software, virtual or even cloud-based?

  • Hardware

    A full range of hardware models are available in both our dedicated and UTM appliance lines that offer full Sophos Web Gateway capabilities to fit any business.

  • Virtual

    Dedicated appliances are offered as a scalable VMware virtual appliance and UTMs. They’re certified for use on VMware and Citrix, and also run on Hyper-V and KVM virtual environments.

  • Software

    This Sophos UTM option comes as an image you can install on your Intel-based server hardware of choice.

  • Cloud-based appliances

    Using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), you can run the appliance in the cloud. Or, you can use the Amazon VPC connector on the appliance at your office for secure and robust access to your Amazon-hosted resources.

Choose Your License

We give you the flexibility to license our protection modules individually. Or, you can choose one of our pre-packaged licenses. Whatever suits your needs.
