Sophos XG 115 firewall appliance is an excellent network security system specifically designed for small enterprises. Typically, a small office with less than 30 endpoints. Indeed, the Sophos XG 115 network security firewall has become very popular among small businesses in Kenya. Even so, we would recommend this firewall system for the big corporate organizations to install for their regional offices as well.

Sophos

For one, the Sophos firewall is affordable, which is buying the firewall appliance and the license subscription. What is more, the Sophos normally have exciting offers for new and current customers alike. Furthermore, discounts offered to Sophos firewall distributors and resellers are usually passed down for the benefit of the customers.

Sophos XG 115 firewall system comes in two distinct types. While one appliance comes with inbuilt Wi-Fi capability, the other type has no wireless LAN. Nonetheless, both appliance will easily work with external wireless access points. Even so, we advise our client to purchase the Sophos firewall appliance with Wi-Fi capability. This is so that you can enjoy the all-in-one network solution in a box.

More importantly, it is critical to keep in mind that no organization is immune to threats from the internet. Even small businesses require protection against cybersecurity threats. Thus, it is important to ask the local Sophos firewall reseller agent about the best solution for network protection.

The Sophos XG 115 network security firewall licensesubscription

Sophos offers two separate licensing options, that is, FullGuard and EnterpriseGuard. The FullGuard license includes activation for all the major protection modules. They include Network Protection, Web Protection, and Email protection and Web server protection.

On the other hand, EnterpriseGuard licensing includes all that FullGuard license offers except the Email Protection module and the Web server protection. We usually advise our clients to go for the FullGuard license. This is why the Email protection module is important. Anti-Spam is actually part of the email protection service. Failing to activate will render all the endpoint vulnerable to spamming, and other attacks propagated through emails.

Then again, Sophos has very flexible licensing options. For instance, an organization can subscribe to an annual license or two-year license. Also, a client can purchase a three-year license subscription. Obviously, purchasing a three-year license is way cheaper than the annual license subscription. Depending on the available financial resources, clients have a choice between the different licensing options.

Even though the firewall appliance can support a fairly large group of standard users, there is an ideal user band. Hence, the Sophos XG 115 network security firewall will be ideal for a company with less than 40 employees. Considering each employee has a laptop and a smartphone connected to the same network. Connecting more than the recommended user connection bands will affect firewall throughput.
