Sophos has made its next-generation XG Firewall available through the Early Access Program. Sophos XG Firewall with lateral movement protection should protect against the spread of targeted, manual cyber attacks. The solution was already presented in November this year.

The XG Firewall automatically switches to the company’s endpoint services, including the new Intercept X Advanced with Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR). This solution can proactively predict and protect against threats, automatically isolate computers and fight infections.

The XG Firewall, like other Sophos services, can be managed remotely via an integrated cloud-based management console. For channel partners, this means that it is possible to manage the entire Sophos setup from a single console. According to Dan Schiappa, Senior Vice President and General Manager Products, this creates synchronized security.

“This allows endpoints and networks to share information in real time, providing greater insight into the network and automated responses to attacks. The power of the Sophos Central platform continues to grow, and with the addition of XG Firewall, users can manage all critical security measures from one place.”

Sophos Central

The XG Firewall is available through the cloud-based Sophos Central Management Platform. It was launched in 2015. Through the Early Access Program on the platform, partners can not only manage the XG Firewall, but also manage web, mail, endpoint, server and mobile protection on a single screen.

At the end of September this year, Sophos Central had more than 77,000 customers. More than eight million transactions were processed per minute. The platform simplifies the management and response time of multiple customers for VARs and MSPs via a partner dashboard.
