Purchasing Sophos on Azure

Sophos XG Firewall on Azure

You can purchase Sophos XG Firewall as a pre-configured virtual machine (VM) image. VM images are available from the Azure Marketplace. VMs come in a variety of types and sizes, similar to selecting different option sizes for hardware appliances in the on-premises world. You can launch and use XG Firewall on Azure, and either pay-as-you-go, or you can bring your own license (BYOL).

PAYG

Pay-As-You-Go

 

You will incur
a charge for:

time you spend running XG Firewall on Azure

hourly pricing of the VM you selected to power the XG on Azure software

Launch XG Firewall on Azure and pay only for what you use, when you use it. No upfront commitment. No minimum fee. And you can delete your XG Firewall at any time.

 

Seasonal compute workloads that often experience high utilization during peak times of the year, but low utilization during off-peak times (such as tax or retail websites) may find PAYG advantageous. You can scale the capacity of your XG Firewall up or down as the needed, while paying only for what you use.

PAYG for XG is limited to Microsoft Remittance Countries, which are subject to the terms and conditions of the Microsoft Azure Marketplace Publisher Agreement. You can refer to Remittance Countries for a full list of countries where XG is available via PAYG.

When you PAYG, XG Firewall comes preconfigured with FullGuard, meaning your XG Firewall solution is enabled with all available security modules, including Network Protection, Web Protection, and more.

BYOL

Bring Your
Own License

 

You will incur
a charge for:

Hourly pricing of the VM you selected to power the Sophos XG Firewall on Azure software.

When you BYOL, you bring a standard XG Firewall software license that you purchased from an authorized Sophos reseller. These licenses are configurable. You can select a term of one, two, or three years. You can also select any number of software subscriptions, including Network Protection, Web Protection, and Sandstorm.

You will not be charged again for the license you bring, but your license is required in order to benefit from your entitlements.

 

Server Protection on Azure

Server Protection is offered under BYOL. Server Protection runs on VMs in Azure environments, but it is not sold through the Azure Marketplace. Server Protection licenses are sold by authorized Sophos resellers. When you purchase a Server Protection license you apply it through Sophos Central.
