The most advanced standalone desktop appliance Sophos offers, the XG 135w firewall offers a winning combination of high-speed network security along with a superior integrated 802.11ac WiFi access point. The result is an all-in-one box which could be all an office needs to keep itself fully protected, or an exceptional option for on-the-go security and access such as at outdoor events or promotional POS kiosks.
Sophos never cuts corners on hardware, and the 135w offers an exceptional value. The system runs on genuine Intel dual-core processors, backed by solid state internal drives, ensuring it provides top performance even under heavy loads. Likewise, the integrated WiFi access point offers a 3x3 MIMO array, operating on both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands, for great accessibility. 802.11ac speeds mean your mobile workforce can keep productivity high, while the firewall has all the speed and throughput necessary to prevent them from being bogged down.
The firewall itself is among the best available, with many features standard that would be optional upgrades from other vendors. The deep-inspection stateful oversight analyzes all network traffic, watching for a wide variety of undesired traffic and blocking it automatically. Administrators get full control over both global and per-box configurations, as well as "Layer 8" user oversight to ensure users aren't engaging in risky behavior.
Administration is simple, thanks to the Sophos Center Dashboard GUI. Everything is straightforward, with a layout designed to never require more than three clicks to access any particular feature. Power users can also access a CLI, if desired. Automatic updating features (while subscribed) make administration even easier.
