How does the Sophos XG work?
Sophos scans constantly for compromised systems, receiving health status directly from endpoints so that there is constant visibility into the health of the entire network. The data is displayed in a real-time, in-depth, informative dashboard providing all the insight your business will need.
The Control Centre will alert you to any potential threats clearly categorising all data using a simple and effective traffic light system. It detects previously unseen malware using top of the line programmes and a fully integrated approach.
The Sophos XG firewall has a unique feature as it integrates the health of connected hosts into your firewall rules. This means that when any system or network is compromised, it can automatically be cut off until it’s rectified.
