Enterprise SecurityHardwareMore News

Sophos, a global leader in next-generation cybersecurity, has unveiled new XGS Series firewall appliances with advanced protection against cyberattacks.

The new appliances feature Transport Layer Security (TLS) inspection, including native support for TLS 1.3.

“Sophos Firewall XGS Series appliances represent the most significant hardware upgrade that we have ever released and introduce unmatched detection, protection and speed,” said Dan Schiappa, Chief Product Officer at Sophos.

“Security teams can no longer afford to overlook encrypted traffic for fear of breaking something or hurting performance – there’s too much at risk. We’ve completely redesigned the Sophos Firewall hardware to handle the modern encrypted Internet. Security teams now have the ability to easily inspect encrypted traffic and shine light on what was once a black hole and they can confidently do so without compromising on performance.”

Powered by Sophos Firewall’s Xstream architecture, XGS Series appliances deliver zero-day threat protection, identifying and stopping the most advanced known and potential threats – including ransomware. Protection is fueled by powerful threat intelligence, available only through SophosLabs Intelix and based on petabytes of SophosLabs threat data. Suspicious files are safely detonated in SophosLabs Intelix virtual environments as well as subjected to in-depth static analysis for additional detection coverage and intelligence gathering.
