Benefits of Sophos XG Firewall on Microsoft Azure
All-in-One Next-Gen Firewall
Save yourself from having to deploy and integrate multiple products in Azure. Sophos XG Firewall integrates multiple leading security technologies into a single solution, without compromising firewall security controls:
• Deep packet inspection for Azure with IPS, ATP, URL filtering, and in-depth reporting
• Bidirectional antivirus for WAF with authentication offloading, path-based routing, and country-level blocking
• Easy to set up and easy to use self-services SSL and HTML5 VPN technologies that make connecting from anywhere and on any device a reality – without administrative overhead
Optimized for Microsoft Azure
Available as a certified preconfigured virtual machine within the Azure Marketplace. Use Azure Resource Manager templates to speed deployment or customize the configuration to meet your needs.
Time Saving Templates and Centralized Policy Management
Manage, view, filter, sort and apply all your user, application and network policies from a single console. With time-saving business application and server protection templates, plus pre-packaged web filtering, IPS, traffic shaping and app control policies at your fingertips.
Synchronized Server Security
An industry first, Synchronized Security links your endpoints, servers, and firewall to enable unique insights and coordination. The Security Heartbeat™ relays endpoint and server health status and enables your firewall to immediately identify and respond to a compromised system on your virtual network. The firewall can help isolate systems until they can be investigated and cleaned up.
