Sophos Ap 100

Posted on  by admin

Hi, I have an AP-100 unit which I want to add to the XG firewall after doing the initial setup. I had to reset to factory defaults as I didn't complete one of the options in the setup wizard, and subsequently had no outbound rules on the firewall. All models are available for cloud-management in Sophos Central. Indoor models can also be managed on-premises via XG Firewall and SG UTM. The Sophos APX Series is a growing portfolio of access points with 802.11ac Wave 2 technology.

Sophos Wireless managed from Sophos Central

With Sophos Wireless you can manage your wireless networks alongside other Sophos solutions or use our Sophos Central management platform solely for wireless network setup and control.

One dashboard for an at-a-glance status

The Sophos Wireless dashboard is your single pane of glass to get the status of your wireless networks, access points, connected clients and identify potential issues needing attention. Get all the key information at-a-glance in a concise manner and on a single screen.

Simple deployment and administration

Using the step-by-step guidance in our on-boarding wizard, creating networks, registering access points and adding sites is child’s play. Our solution is built to be simple to use - even for non-wireless experts - but that doesn’t mean you forfeit functionality. Schedule firmware upgrades to keep your network up-to-date and deploy new features.

Increased visibility and control

See which traffic is using your bandwidth to optimize the performance of your Wi-Fi and alert you to potential unwanted use of your resources. With Sophos Wireless you’ll know exactly what’s happening with your users and your wireless networks to avoid behavior which could put your security at risk.

Secure guest access and hotspot setup

Provide controlled internet access for visitors, contractors and other guests on your network. Using a daily password or time-based voucher, you can customize guest access with your own terms of service and branding. Use enterprise-grade backend authentication for a seamless user experience.

Multi-site management and cloud scalability

One of the benefits of a cloud-managed wireless solution is scalability. Whether you have just one growing network, or multiple sites, extending your Wi-Fi is as simple as adding an additional access point. With our basic site planning tools you get a first impression of what your set-up will look like, before doing a more detailed site survey and plan.

Features:

Plug & Play Deployment

Deploying Sophos Access Points is easy. Automatic setup and configuration means multiple wireless access points are up and running in minutes.

Simply plug the access point in and it automatically appears in the Sophos UTM user interface. Enable them from the console, and within seconds they become operational.

Reliable Mesh Networking

Sophos Access Points are ideal for creating multiple separate wireless zones. Configure a wireless network to provide employees access to internal network resources. On the same access point, you can offer wireless guests Internet access. Do it all without compromising the integrity of the internal network.

Access points include the dual-band, dual-radio AP 50, that can act as a repeater or bridge to extend Wi-Fi coverage to hard to wire areas.

Easy Guest Access

Set up guest hotspots for visitors or BYOD devices to control access to company resources. You get secure, easy-to-manage guest access out-of-the-box—without extra appliances, licenses or complex configuration.

  • Fully customizable login pages and vouchers based upon templates—so you design the user experience and promote your company brand
  • Automated mobile-device hotspot registration and authentication via SMS
  • Set bandwidth limits and enforce inappropriate content filtering

Strong Encryption

Sophos UTM supports the strongest encryption and authentication standards available. Simply use your existing backend authentication, such as Active Directory, to allow quick and easy access for your employees. Know your wireless connections are completely secure.

  • WPA2-Enterprise in combination with IEEE 802.1X (RADIUS authentication)
  • Block-based encryption, providing the highest level of assurance that data is protected
  • Sophos UTM monitoring easily detects failed authentication attempts

Optimized Performance

You get the ultimate in wireless performance with Sophos UTM and our Wireless Access Points.

  • Support for the latest high-speed wireless standards including 802.11ac and 802.11n for up to Gigabit wireless speeds
  • Automated channel selection and optimization for maximum performance and minimum interference under any situation

Complete UTM Security

Sophos Access Points send wireless traffic to the Sophos UTM appliance, where all security applications run.

  • Wireless users get the same level of security as if they were connected physically to the LAN
  • Add additional UTM protection modules to take full control of your network including network applications, quality-of-service, web surfing and more

Simple Management

At Sophos, simplicity is our mantra. You’ll have complete control over all the security features you need all in one place, with none of the complexity.

We've invested heavily in streamlining our interface. This way you won't have to reach for the manual every time you need to update a policy or change a setting. So you're never more than a couple clicks from completing your task.

Complete on-box reporting

Our built-in reporting means you’ll know exactly what's happening with your users. Fix problems fast and shape your policies, keeping your users secure while boosting network performance. And, you get detailed reports as standard, stored locally with no separate tools required.

At-a-glance flow graphs show usage trends with predefined and customizable reports, providing key web activity. Report anonymization hides user names, requiring the four-eyes-principle to unhide them.

Flexible deployment

Sophos UTM gives you complete security—from the network firewall to endpoint antivirus—in a single modular appliance.

  • Install as hardware, software or a virtual appliance or even in the cloud
  • License our protection modules individually. Or, you can choose one of our pre-packaged licenses
  • Centrally manage multiple appliances through IPsec VPN tunnels with our Free UTM Manager

Sophos APX Series access points are now supported on every platform: Sophos Central, XG Firewall, and Sophos SG UTM (from v9.7). With our latest generation of access points, you can offer an attractive replacement for every one of our legacy AP Series indoor models. You can learn more about the benefits of the APX Series in this Partner Portal blog post. Please note that all APX Series access points have a five-year warranty.

Last month we sent an email to all partners who have sold any AP Series model to give advance notice of the final order (End-of-Sale) date for the current indoor AP Series models and the subsequent lifecycle milestones.

All platforms allow you to manage all current AP and APX Series in a mixed environment. This means that your customers who have only recently purchased their AP Series access points are under no pressure to upgrade straight away. They can simply add newer APX models as they extend or make changes to their deployment. Our lifecycle plan gives you sufficient time to plan a gradual transition to the APX Series with your customers over a three-year period.

Why are we starting the End-of-Life process for the AP Series?

Wireless technology and standards are constantly evolving. The use of Wi-Fi in most environments has increased considerably over the past five-plus years, predominantly due to the number of mobile and other Wi-Fi connected devices now available. The majority of the current AP Series models have been in the Sophos portfolio since 2015 (the AP 100 since 2014) and these models do not support the most commonly used Wi-Fi standards available today. Newer standards, such as 802.11ac Wave 2 (which is still the most commonly used standard in business environments) include technology innovations to offer better performance, even when a larger number of clients are connected simultaneously. They are also built to handle the applications more commonly used today, such as voice and video, and so provide a better user experience.

* Under some circumstances, the dual-radio APX 120 may be a viable, lower-cost alternative.

What will these dates mean for your customers?

We have made every effort to provide advance notice and therefore make the transition as easy as possible and avoid any disruption for your customers. We will continue to process RMAs for all customers with a valid support contract (e.g. as part of their subscription) until the End-of Life date.

The lifecycle milestones are described in detail below.

End-of-Sale: March 31, 2020

The AP Series models mentioned below will no longer be sold by Sophos:

  • Indoor only: AP 15, AP 15C, AP 55, AP 55C, AP 100, AP 100C

Software SKUs for the following subscriptions can no longer be ordered:

  • Central Wireless Standard – Entry
  • Central Wireless Standard – Performance (unless for AP 100X)

After this date the product:

  • will not receive any new features
  • will receive only critical security patches and bug fixes but only until March 31, 2021
  • Will not be supported by any new hardware models released after this date

Your access point will continue to operate as normal.

End-of-Support: March 31, 2021

After this date:

  • Sophos will process RMAs but no longer offer support
  • The affected AP models will no longer receive any software updates or bug fixes of any kind
  • APs will continue to operate on the last supported firmware version

RMAs: Will be processed for any AP Series model with a valid warranty or support license (if the same model is not available, an equivalent model will be supplied as a replacement).

Price

Support: Technical support is no longer provided. Hotline calls will only be accepted for RMA processing.

End-of-Life: March 31, 2023

From this date, management support for the above-mentioned AP Series models will no longer be included in new software releases for Sophos Central Wireless, XG Firewall (SFOS), and SG UTM.

My Sophos Portal

Please reach out to your local Sophos sales team before this date to discuss the hardware refresh options for your customers to ensure a smooth transition to newer technology.

Sophos Ap 100 Datasheet

What about the AP 100X?

Please note that the AP 100X outdoor model is not affected by this announcement and will continue to be sold until an equivalent APX model is available (in early May 2020) and the support dates on all platforms are clear.

What about older AP Series access points?

Should any of your customers still be using the much older AP Series access points, such as the AP 5, AP 10, AP 30, and AP 50 with either Sophos UTM or XG Firewall, those models have already been End-of-Life since at least 2018, and therefore management support cannot be guaranteed for those models on any platform. By using End-of-Life hardware, your customers may be risking interruptions in the correct functioning of their Wi-Fi network or their connectivity as a whole. In some scenarios, this could also affect their compliance status. We would request that all partners work with these customers to refresh their access points to models which are still supported.

What should I do with End-of-Life hardware?

After the End-of-Life of any hardware device, Sophos suggests that you dispose of the unit responsibly and in accordance with the environmental requirements in your region.

Who can I contact to get more help?

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your local Sophos team. They can help you to find the optimal plan for a managed lifecycle for your customers’ hardware.
