Sophos introduces Sophos Switch Series to enhance access layer connectivity

Networking Technology

Sophos introduced the Sophos Switch Series, which includes a variety of network access layer switches for connecting, powering, and controlling device access within a LAN (LAN). Sophos’ secure access portfolio now comprises Sophos Firewall and Sophos Wireless, in addition to the new solution.

“Sophos Switch seamlessly integrates with the Sophos adaptive cybersecurity ecosystem to extendconnectivity across office LANs,” said Joe Levy, chief technology officer at Sophos.

He added, “We’re removing the complexities of multi-vendor deployments by providing organizations and channel partners with a single source of management, monitoring and troubleshooting.”

The cloud-based Sophos Central platform is used to manage switches remotely. This gives partners a single, easy-to-use interface to manage all customer installations, respond to alarms, and track licences and future renewal dates.

“Sophos Switch perfectly complements the existing Sophos portfolio – it was the missing piece in our IT security offering, and now gives our business even more clout. We were already very successful with Sophos Firewall, and thanks to Sophos Switch we are now able to unleash the full power of Sophos’ products and services. Our experience from the early access program proved that Sophos Switch is a game changer for us, and we were very positively surprised at how well the product worked from day one,” said Patrizio Perret, chief technology officer at Avanet.

He added, “While a switch is pretty much a commodity these days, Sophos is adding the necessary spice to the hardware with the software capabilities. Sophos’ adaptive cybersecurity ecosystem is the magic ingredient that will make Sophos Switch something really special by enabling companies to integrate it with other Sophos security components in their network.”
