Sophos Expands Firewall Portfolio with Enterprise-Grade Appliances

2

Sophos has announced the expansion of its next-generation firewall portfolio with two new high-end, enterprise-grade XGS Series appliances. The new XGS 7500 and 8500 models provide unrivaled performance and protection for large enterprise and campus deployments, broadening market opportunities for the channel partners that serve them.

“Large enterprises are under incredible pressure to support tens of thousands of users, all while protecting against complex cyberthreats and demonstrating a clear return on IT infrastructure investments amidst today’s challenging economic climate,” said Daniel Cole, vice president of network security product management at Sophos. “Sophos is shaking up the competitive enterprise firewall landscape with these new high-performance appliances, providing best-in-class price per protected megabit per second (Mbps). Network performance, reliability, and security are top of mind as customers grow and expand their infrastructure needs, and these platforms enable organizations to grow and scale without having to compromise on security, which is often the case in larger, more demanding environments. For our channel partners, we’re creating new opportunities to support distributed organizations needing everything from managing an office of one to the most complex environments protecting tens of thousands of distributed users.”

The new XGS 7500 and 8500 models deliver industry-best modular connectivity; highly scalable software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) features; trusted traffic and application acceleration; high-performance Transport Layer Security (TLS) inspection; threat protection; and enterprise-grade, high-availability, and redundancy capabilities. Featuring high-performance Xstream flow processors and central processing units (CPUs) with enterprise-grade acceleration, the models offer roughly 50% faster throughput than industry averages in their class:

  • Up to 190 gigabits per second (Gbps) firewall throughput
  • Up to 141 Gbps Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) virtual private network (VPN) throughput
  • Up to 93 Gbps intrusion prevention system (IPS) throughput
  • Up to 76 Gbps next-generation firewall (NGFW) throughput
  • Up to 34 Gbps threat protection throughput
  • Up to 24 Gbps Xstream Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and TLS inspection
  • Support for up to 58 million concurrent connections
  • Support for up to 1.7 million new connections per second

Additional highlights include:

  • Up to two times better energy efficiency than the industry average when using IPsec VPN
  • High-speed connectivity with two QSFP28 ports supporting speeds of up to 100 Gbps
  • High capacity, high-speed random access memory (RAM) and non-volatile memory express (NVMe) solid-state drives for improved compatibility and storage
  • Unique programmable Xstream architecture delivers unmatched levels of protection, performance, and visibility
    • Intelligent TLS inspection guarantees industry-leading performance, flexibility, and transparency in all encrypted traffic
    • A deep packet inspection (DPI) engine delivers threat protection in a single streaming engine for antivirus, IPS, web, app control, and TLS inspection
    • Network FastPath technology ensures automatic and policy-based intelligent offloading of trusted traffic processing at wire speed

“Sophos Firewall is a key pillar of Sophos’ SASE strategy. It provides a more simplified, scalable, and secure solution over traditional remote access VPN, and integrates with Sophos ZTNA (zero trust network access) under one unified management plane,” the company said. “The network solution is part of the Sophos Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem, which integrates Sophos’ anti-ransomware endpoint solutions, as well as its entire portfolio of products, services, and Sophos X-Ops threat intelligence for faster and more contextual and synchronized detection, protection, and response.”
