Overview:

Simplify your wireless networking by using Sophos UTM as a wireless controller to centralize your Wi-Fi management and security. Our access points are automatically set up and configured by the UTM. That means all your wireless clients get complete threat protection too.

Highlights

  • Centrally controlled wireless from your UTM
  • No local configuration of access points required
  • Complete UTM protection for wireless clients
  • Quick voucher-based guest access
  • Choose from a range of access-point models
  • Uses high capacity 802.11n for reliable access

Installs fast with automatic setup and configuration

You can set up multiple wireless Access Points (APs) within minutes. They require no local configuration and will simply find the controller, retrieve their IP address via DHCP, and import the configuration. Devices automatically appear in the UTM interface where you can manually activate them.

Creates reliable mesh networks

Our range of access points support different deployment scenarios. They include the ceiling-mount design AP 30 and the dual-band/dual-radio AP 50 which acts as a repeater and/or bridge to extend coverage to hard to wire areas.

Provides guest Wi-Fi and BYOD access

We give you secure, easy-to-manage guest access out-of-the-box – without extra appliances, licenses or complex configuration. Customizable splash pages, bandwidth limits, on-the-fly guest logins and content filtering allow you to customize your guest experience.

Secure wireless and integrated UTM protection

To prevent unauthorized access we use the most advanced encryption and authentication standards available, including WPA2-Enterprise in combination with IEEE 802.1X (RADIUS authentication). And, our APs forward wireless traffic to the UTM, giving wireless clients the same level of security as if they were physically connected to the LAN.

Features:

Plug & Play DeploymentPlug & Play Deployment

Deploying Sophos Access Points is easy. Automatic setup and configuration means multiple wireless access points are up and running in minutes.

Simply plug the access point in and it automatically appears in the Sophos UTM user interface. Enable them from the console, and within seconds they become operational.


Reliable Mesh Networking

Reliable Mesh Networking

Access points include the ceiling-mount design AP 30 and the dual-band, dual-radio AP 50, that can act as a repeater or bridge to extend Wi-Fi coverage to hard to wire areas.

Sophos Access Points are ideal for creating multiple separate wireless zones. Configure a wireless network to provide employees access to internal network resources. On the same access point, you can offer wireless guests Internet access. Do it all without compromising the integrity of the internal network.

Complete on-box reportingComplete on-box reporting

Our built-in reporting means you’ll know exactly what's happening with your users. Fix problems fast and shape your policies, keeping your users secure while boosting network performance. And, you get detailed reports as standard, stored locally with no separate tools required.

At-a-glance flow graphs show usage trends with predefined and customizable reports, providing key web activity. Report anonymization hides user names, requiring the four-eyes-principle to unhide them.


Flexible deploymentFlexible deployment

Sophos UTM gives you complete security—from the network firewall to endpoint antivirus—in a single modular appliance.

  • Install as hardware, software or a virtual appliance or even in the cloud
  • License our protection modules individually. Or, you can choose one of our pre-packaged licenses
  • Centrally manage multiple appliances through IPsec VPN tunnels with our Free UTM Manager
