As part of a Synchronized Security Solution, Sophos XG firewalls can be managed with the Sophos Central cloud console, communicating instantaneously with your endpoints and other security solutions around the clock through the Sophos Security Heartbeat. Noted third-party evaluators like Gartner, NSS Labs, and SC Media have all recognized Sophos XG firewalls as top-of-the-class.
