Sophos XG Firewall provides comprehensive next-generation firewall protection that exposes hidden risks, blocks unknown threats, and automatically responds to incidents.
Exposes hidden risks
Sophos XG Firewall provides unprecedented visibility into top risk users, unknown apps, advanced threats, suspicious payloads and much more. You also get rich on-box reporting included at no extra charge and the option to add Sophos iView for centralized reporting across multiple firewalls.
Blocks unknown threats
Sophos XG Firewall provides all the latest advanced technology you need to protect your network from ransomware and advanced threats including top-rated IPS, Advanced Threat Protection, Cloud Sandboxing, Dual AV, Web and App Control, Email Protection and a fullfeatured Web Application Firewall. And it's easy to setup and manage.
Automatically responds to incidents
XG Firewall is the only network security solution that is able to fully identify the source of an infection on your network and automatically limit access to other network resources in response. This is made possible with our unique Sophos Security Heartbeat™ that shares telemetry and health status between Sophos endpoints and your firewall.
Potent, powerful.. fast
We've engineered XG Firewall to deliver outstanding performance and security efficiency for the best return on your investment. Our appliances are built using Intel multi-core technology, solid-state drives, and accelerated in-memory content scanning. In addition, Sophos FastPath packet optimization technology ensures you'll always get maximum throughput.
Simply manage multiple firewalls
Sophos Firewall Manager provides a single console for the complete central management of multiple XG Firewalls. And if you also want to consolidate reporting across multiple XG, SG, and Cyberoam appliances then with Sophos iView, you can.
Security features you can't get anywhere else
XG Firewall includes a number of innovations that not only make your job a lot easier, but also ensure your network is more secure.
An industry first, Synchronized Security links your endpoints and your firewall to enable unique insights and coordination. Security Heartbeat™ relays Endpoint health status and enables your firewall to immediately identify and respond to a compromised system on your network. The firewall can isolate systems until they can be investigated and cleaned up. Another Synchronized Security feature, Synchronized App Control, also enables the firewall to query the endpoint to determine the source of unknown traffic on the network.
Unified Firewall Rules
User identity takes enforcement to a whole new layer with our identity based policy technology enabling user level controls over applications, bandwidth and other network resources regardless of IP-address, location, network or device. It literally takes firewall policy to a whole new layer.
A Firewall That Thinks Like You
Pre-defined policy templates let you protect common applications like Microsoft Exchange or SharePoint quickly and easily. Simply select them from a list, provide some basic information and the template takes care of the rest. It sets all the inbound/ outbound firewall rules and security settings for you automatically - displaying the final policy in a statement in plain English.
Insights into Top Risk Users
The Sophos User Threat Quotient (UTQ) indicator is a unique feature which provides actionable intelligence on user behavior. Our firewall correlates each user's surfing habits and activity with advanced threat triggers and history to identify users with risk-prone behavior.
Flexible deployment, no compromise
Unlike our competitors, whether you choose hardware, software, virtual or Microsoft Azure, we don't make you compromise - every feature is available on every model and form- factor.

XG Firewall v17.5 is now available
XG Firewall v17.5 is now available, bringing new Synchronized Security features, options for education institutions and more of your top requested features.
The rise in targeted ransomware and other active adversary attacks makes rapid identification and response critical to contain these threats and prevent them from moving laterally across your network.
Lateral Movement Protection, a new Synchronized Security feature, builds on the success of Security Heartbeat™ in providing an automated response to the presence of a threat. It not only isolates the compromised system from accessing network resources at the firewall, but also now enlists the aid of all healthy endpoints on the network to synchronize a defense.
All healthy Sophos endpoints will isolate any compromised system, providing isolation at the endpoint level, and preventing any threat from moving laterally - even on the same broadcast domain or network segment.
We will be diving into this and other Synchronized Security features in more detail in the days ahead.
In addition to Lateral Movement Protection, there's a variety of new features focused on protection, flexibility, networking and management.
What's new in XG Firewall v17.5
Here's a quick overview of the key new features in v17.5:
- Synchronized Security - lateral movement protection - extends our Security Heartbeat™ automated threat isolation to prevent any threat from moving laterally or spreading across the network, even on the same subnet. The firewall instructs all healthy endpoints to completely isolate any unhealthy endpoints.
- Synchronized User ID - utilizes Security Heartbeat™ to greatly streamline authentication for user-based policy enforcement and reporting in any Active Domain network by eliminating the need for any kind of server or client agent.
- Education features - such as per-user policy-based control over SafeSearch and YouTube restrictions, teacher enabled block-page overrides, and Chromebook authentication support.
- Email features - adds Sender Policy Framework (SPF) anti-spoofing protection and a new MTA based on Exim, which closes a couple of top requested feature differences with SG Firewall.
- IPS protection - is enhanced with greatly expanded categories enabling you to better optimize your performance and protection.
- Management enhancements - including enhanced firewall rule grouping with automatic group assignment, and a custom column selection for the log viewer.
- VPN and SD-WAN failover and failback - including new IPSec failover and failback controls and SD-WAN link failback options.
- Client authentication - gets a major update with a variety of new enhancements such as per-machine deployment, a logout option, support for wake from sleep, and MAC address sharing.
- Sophos Connect - is our new IPSec VPN Client, free for all XG Firewall customers, that makes remote VPN connections easy for users, and supports Synchronized Security.
In addition, coming in a following maintenance release we have:
- Wireless APX access point support - provides support for the new Wave 2 access points providing faster connectivity and added scalability.
- Airgap support - for deployments where XG Firewall can't get updates automatically via an internet connection (due to an "airgap" or physical isolation), XG Firewall can now be updated via USB.

Security Heartbeat™ - Your firewall and your endpoints are finally talking
Sophos XG Firewall is the only network security solution that is able to fully identify the user and source of an infection on your network and automatically limit access to other network resources in response. This is made possible with our unique Sophos Security Heartbeat™ that shares telemetry and health status between Sophos endpoints and your firewall.
The good news is, this all happens automatically, and is successfully helping numerous businesses and organizations to save time and money in protecting their environments today.
Synchronized App Control - Revealing the unknown
Using Security Heartbeat we can do much more than just see the health status of an endpoint. We also have a solution to one of the biggest problems most network administrators face today - lack of visibility into network traffic.
Synchronized App Control automatically identifies, classifies and controls custom, evasive, and generic web applications which are currently going unidentified. Because these applications become visible, policies can also be applied to them, putting them fully under your control.
But there's more..
Synchronized Security can connect much more than just your firewall and your endpoints. Using Sophos Central as our synchronized security platform, we are adding many more solutions to improve your protection.
