By synchronizing with Sophos Central. You use IPv4, the IPsec profile is IKEv2, and you use RSA keys for authentication. You add a static route. Note The network addresses used here are examples only. Use your network addresses when creating your route-based VPN. You need to do as follows. IKEv2 is now supported on the Sophos XG firewall (not the UTM yet). Have you considered transitioning to the XG firewall? Ben over 3 years ago in reply to DavidOkeyode what good is having IKEv2 on XG if nobody/not many want to switch over from UTM?

Azure Virtual WAN is a networking service that brings many networking, security, and routing functionalities together to provide a single operational SD-WAN network. The Virtual WAN architecture is a hub and spoke architecture, with scale and performance built in for branches (VPN/SD-WAN devices), users (Azure VPN/OpenVPN/IKEv2 clients), ExpressRoute circuits, and virtual networks.

It enables a global transit network architecture, where the cloud-hosted network “hub” enables connectivity between points that may be distributed across different types of “spokes”.

Azure regions serve as the SD-WAN hubs, which are fully mesh-connected, making it easy to use the Microsoft backbone for any-to-any type of connectivity.

XG Firewall’s integration with Azure Virtual WAN enables you to build a scalable SD-WAN network deployed across the global Microsoft enterprise WAN backbone, while utilizing XG Firewall’s full suite of protection capabilities for securing applications and traffic flows. This greatly simplifies connectivity and can dramatically reduce expenses compared to traditional leased-lines.

If you’re interested in leveraging Azure Virtual WAN with your XG Firewall, we’ve prepared an extensive deployment guide: How to Integrate XG Firewall with Azure Virtual WAN (Secure SD-WAN)

This guide highlights the step-by-step configuration involved in connecting XG Firewalls located at an HQ to an Azure Virtual WAN hub in order to access the virtual networks across multiple availability zones. It also outlines the configuration required for connecting remote offices to the virtual WAN and backhauling traffic through Microsoft’s global network to create the ultimate SD-WAN solution.
