And as every software subscription is available on every appliance, you can flexibly size the solution to fit your budget and your individual security needs. Next-generation firewall features or all-in-one security on a single box, it’s your choice.

Rapid Proven performance on all models
Our appliances are built upon the most advanced Intel technology. Optimized use of multi-core processors allows consolidation of your security solutions without a performance trade-off. With faster than ever firewall, IPS and VPN throughput speeds, our SG Series appliances effortlessly handle multiple tasks simultaneously. Plus, you can easily scale up by dynamically clustering up to 10 units without external load balancers.

Responsive Technology built to process data in real-time
Your network is constantly changing so your protection needs to be adaptive. All our appliances have integrated solid state disks (SSDs) for local storage of spam quarantine data and faster access to comprehensive reports and realtime logs. Accelerated in-memory content scanning in secure proxy mode makes your defenses more effective and efficient.

Reliable Engineered for business – today and tomorrow
Using the latest Intel technology, our products provide the utmost in flexibility. Add to your protection as you need it – without changing or upgrading your hardware. That means you benefit from future software and performance enhancements which guarantees the best possible value for money. Redundancy features such as a second power supply are available for all 1U and 2U models. Additionally, the 1U SG 450 and all 2Us come with a second hard-drive.

Modular Flexible configuration options on many models
Configure your hardware to suit your infrastructure and change it as and when you need to. Our optional FleXi Port LAN modules give you the freedom to select the connectivity you need – copper, fiber, 10 GbE or 40 GbE – you decide. FleXi Port modules are interchangeable within a range, e.g. 1U, so, for example, you can use the same module with all of your 1U appliances which saves you money if you upgrade to a different model at a later date.

Connected Full wireless coverage – for every office
Our SG 100 Series desktop models with integrated wireless are a very tidy solution for even the most compact office space. As the access point is built in, you do not require any extra hardware. Should you need additional coverage or have a larger space, you can add Sophos access points. Every one of our appliances has a built-in wireless controller for you to connect Sophos access points and manage them simply from your central management console.
