What's New with Sophos Web Appliance v4

Advanced Threat Protection

With our Secure Web Gateway, you get the most advanced web threat protection:

  • Our high-performance web malware engine inspects all web traffic in real-time
  • Advanced techniques like JavaScript emulation block the latest web threats before they reach the browser
  • SophosLabs continuously updates our threat intelligence via the cloud, keeping you ahead of new and emerging threats

Real-Time Reputation Filtering

SophosLabs identifies over 30,000 newly infected websites daily. You’re protected from all of them.

Real-time reputation filtering protects you from newly infected websites as soon as they come online. We do this using our ever-growing, cloud-hosted database of malicious sites.

Customizable Web Filtering

Select from billions of sites in 56 categories to create safe web browsing policies. You can minimize legal concerns around inappropriate content and maximize productivity.

You can set policy by users and time, using a variety of authentication options including IP Address, Active Directory SSO, eDirectory SSO and LDAP.

Protection Everywhere

Our endpoint protection integrates with both our Sophos Web Appliances and UTMs, providing a unique and elegant solution for protection everywhere.

We’ve integrated the full power of our web protection into our endpoints. When users leave the office, they’re fully protected on the web without having to backhaul or use a VPN to get online safely.

Policy and reporting syncs through the cloud, so it’s like they never left.

Web Protection in Today's Mobile World

Flexible Deployment

Our Sophos Web Appliance is available as a virtual appliance or in a full range of hardware models to fit any business.

Install your Sophos Web Appliance as an explicit proxy or in transparent mode with WCCP support for Cisco firewalls, and easy Active Directory or eDirectory integration.

You can also centrally manage multiple Sophos Web Appliances with an optional Sophos Management Appliance for seamless policy replication and aggregate reporting across multiple locations.
