As an all-in-one desktop appliance, the Sophos XG 105w firewall is a solid option for budget-conscious small businesses in need of big business-level network protections, along with an integrated wireless AP for easy local access.
Despite being a two-in-one box, the XG 105w is first and foremost a firewall backed by some of the most advanced protections on the market. Included standard are many features which other brands charge for as extras, including DDOS protections, IP-based geoblocking, IPSec/VPN support, and per-box reporting. The Sophos XG 105W watches over your network at all times, keeping a close eye on traffic and keeping you fully informed.
Administration is simple as well, thanks to the Sophos Central Dashboard and their "three clicks to anywhere" streamlined GUI design. Even security newcomers can quickly get a handle on the Sophos XG 105w, with robust graphing and reporting that gives them a handle on every aspect of their network. Admins also get "Layer 8" user awareness tracking and configuration, as well as plenty of options for traffic shaping.
The XG 105w next-gen firewall includes:
- 4 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
- 2 USB ports
- 1 VGA port
- 3 Gbps firewall throughput
- 300 Mbps VPN throughput
- 700 Mbps IPS throughput
- 430 Mbps antivirus throughput
However, the XG 105w goes beyond by also integrating a full wireless access point as well, which also receives full firewall protections. This AP supports 802.1a/b/g/n protocols, on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands, with three external antennas for improved speeds and radio coverage. This makes the XG 105w particularly well-suited for on-the-go applications such as at trade shows or POS kiosks that need to maintain network connectivity without compromising local security.
