The Sophos XG 85w firewall is a great solution for startups, small businesses, and home offices in need of an all-in-one wireless security solution which combines a state-of-the-art firewall with an access point all in one affordable box.
The XG 85w has nearly all the same features as larger Sophos products, and can bring truly superior security to even the smallest of businesses. The stateful deep inspection firewall runs on Intel dual-core technology for rapid packet processing with minimal lag and slowdown, while still providing total protection. The user interface provides a wide variety of information in a simple GUI presentation, allowing even newcomers to quickly get a handle on their network security.
Note: Being an entry level model, the XG 85w does not include on-box reporting, dual AV scanning, WAF AV scanning and email MTA functionality. Users needing these features in a low-budget option should investigate the XG 105/105w models instead.
As a firewall, the next-gen XG 85w features:
- 4 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
- 2 USB ports
- 3 Gbps firewall throughput
- 225 Mbps VPN throughput
- 580 Mbps IPS throughput
- 360 Mbps antivirus throughput
Along with its standard firewall features, the XG 85w also includes a full Wireless access point integrated into the hardware. This supports 802.1a/b/g/n protocols, dual-antennas, and broadcasts on both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz radio bands.
Sophos brings a lot of bang for your buck, and is the most trusted name in network security. In today's security-focused climate, even the smallest of operations needs superior protection against intrusion. Contact Hummingbird Networks to discuss how Sophos can keep your small business safe.
