Empowering your SD-WAN strategy

SD-RED offers a uniquely simple solution to extend network connectivity to your remote locations and branch offices – no matter where in the world they are. Replace expensive MPLS connections to reduce your costs and take advantage of other Sophos products, such as Intercept X, for added SD-WAN functionality in combination with XG Firewall.

Sophos has long been a pioneer in providing an easy-to-use, secure way to connect branch offices and other remote locations. XG Firewall includes a number of SD-WAN features to help you to accelerate application performance and get better visibility into network health to ensure that your remote locations enjoy the same performance as your main office.

SD-RED devices are built on the latest enterprise-class, high-speed networking platforms. They work with your XG Firewall whether you’ve deployed as hardware, software or in the public cloud. Our full range of Sophos Wireless Access Points are also compatible with Sophos SD-RED. To use a Sophos SD-RED you will need an active Network Protection subscription for XG Firewall.


  • Easily extend your secure network to any location
  • Select from two models to suit your deployment and connectivity needs
  • Use strong AES 256- bit encryption
  • Seamlessly connect with Sophos APX Access Points

XG Firewall Enables Your SD-WAN Goals

Replace expensive MPLS connections with lower-cost SD-WAN. XG Firewall integrates the features you need to enable your SD-WAN connectivity, quality, security, and continuity goals.

  • Connect for Less
    XG Firewall lets you take advantage of less-expensive internet connectivity options such as DSL, cable, and 3G/4G/LTE.
  • Optimize Application Performance
    Unlike MPLS which introduces latency by backhauling traffic from remote sites, Sophos SD-WAN connects directly to the internet for faster access to cloud applications.
  • Stay Protected
    XG Firewall delivers industry-proven security against malware, ransomware, intrusions, and other threats across your entire network.
  • Business Continuity
    Utilize redundant connections to the same, or different, ISPs to handle routing, failover, and session preservation in the event of an outage.

Zero-Touch Edge and Branch Connectivity

SD-RED makes extending your secure network to all your remote locations easy and affordable. It requires no technical skills at the remote site. Simply enter the SD-RED device ID into your XG Firewall and ship it. As soon as it’s plugged in and connected to the internet, our provisioning service automatically connects it to your firewall and establishes a secure, dedicated VPN tunnel. And there’s no added licensing cost for SD-REDs – it’s included in your XG Firewall Network Protection License.

An Innovative Solution to SD-WAN VPN Connectivity

  • Zero-touch auto provisioning enables deployment by non-technical staff
  • Secure VPN tunnel connectivity with your XG Firewall from anywhere via our lightweight robust Layer 2 SD-RED tunnel
  • Selective routing options for any mix of VPN and local WAN access
  • Enterprise-grade encryption
  • Flexible connectivity options, including 3G/4G/LTE, copper, fiber, Wi-Fi, and PoE (SD-RED 60 only)

SD-WAN Link Management

Monitor and manage your SD-WAN connectivity easily from Sophos Central or on-box with traffic-light style indicators for your WAN link status with powerful options for link fail-over and fail-back.

Cloud and Hybrid Deployments Made Simple

XG Firewall offers a powerful and modular line of hardware appliance models as well as software, virtual, and cloud deployment options, and unique affordable SD-RED devices to enable your network goals easily.

XG Series Appliances

XG Firewall offers a full range of top-performing hardware appliances with modular connectivity options for all your LAN, WAN, and wireless needs including Wi-Fi, cellular, copper, and fiber interfaces.

Software, Virtual, Cloud

XG Firewall is also available as a software appliance, supports all the popular virtualization platforms, and is available on both Azure and Amazon Web Services to protect and connect your public, private, and hybrid cloud networks.


Our unique zero-touch SD-RED edge devices make extending your secure network to branch offices and ICS devices easy. SD-RED lightweight Layer 2 tunnels provide a robust secure VPN solution. It works reliably even in the most hostile and high-latency network situations.


Plug-and-protect deployment

Sophos SD-RED makes extending your secure network to other locations easy. It requires no technical skills at the remote site; simply enter the device ID into your Sophos firewall appliance and ship it. As soon as the device is plugged in and connected to the internet it will contact your firewall and establish a secure dedicated VPN tunnel. It’s really that simple.

Flexible configuration

Set up your SD-RED devices to tunnel all traffic from the remote location back to the firewall, controlling DHCP and other network elements of the remote network. Or, you can choose to only route inter-office network traffic via your SD-RED, while enabling direct internet access from the remote location.

Securely encrypted, centrally managed

All data between the SD-RED and your Sophos firewall is encrypted using AES256 levels, ensuring a tamper- and hack-proof, secure connection. With central management from our latest XG and SG Series, protection is completely transparent across your distributed network and can be customized or replicated to suit your needs.

Synchronized SD-WAN

When managed through XG Firewall, Synchronized SD-WAN allows you to benefit from the power of Synchronized Security and XG Firewall’s integration with Sophos Intercept X to optimize WAN path selection for your important business applications with 100% reliability.

Flexible Wi-Fi and WAN connectivity

Optionally add a Wi-Fi-5 or 3G/4G module to provide connectivity for wireless clients or to use 3G/4G internet connections.


Branch Office Connectivity

Another core component of SD-WAN is the ability to connect remote and branch locations with the central headquarters for the purpose of sharing data, enabling transactions, and delivering cloud applications. Features such as affordable, flexible, and zero-touch or low-touch deployment are very desirable in order to make this as painless and cost-effective as possible, while still supporting a variety of enterprise connectivity requirements.

Sophos XG Firewall and SD-RED devices offer tunnel options to simply and affordably connect branch offices via SD-WAN.

After the recent End-of-Sale announcement for the legacy RED devices (which are mostly sold out), it’s time to focus on positioning the new SD-RED models. These devices are uniquely positioned to address the current demand for plug-and-play, secure remote connectivity – and particularly important right now, without needing on-site IT staff.

But with changes in pricing and connectivity options compared to their legacy predecessors, we’ve had many questions about positioning the new models.

This post will help you answer those questions.

When should I position an entry-level XG instead of SD-RED?

The image below provides a simple answer, but for more detail, check out this Partner News story.

Why is there no longer a w-model?

By offering a modular concept, we can provide a very flexible solution which customers can tailor to their individual needs for each remote site – both now and in the future. The Wi-Fi and 3G/4G add-on connectivity modules which are being used with SD-RED are already available for some XG and SG Desktop appliances – a great chance to go back to existing customers after a while and position an upsell option. This modular concept also allows us to offer more connectivity options without having to create multiple separate models. Every separate model we offer needs to be manufactured, certified, planned, forecast and stocked separately both in our logistics centers and those of our distributors. This new modularity offers benefits for our customers, our channel and our supply chain.

Note: In future software releases for XG and SG UTM, we will also add support for the SFP VDSL modem, but it is not supported today.

Why the price changes?

The legacy RED devices were introduced between mid-2014 and the beginning of 2016. That’s a long time by any measure but represents generations in technology and things have simply changed. The design for the new SD-RED devices allowed us to make some adjustments to the pricing based upon the components used (particularly those common to other appliances) whilst offering a much-enhanced feature-set. For the SD-RED 20 this resulted in a higher price than the RED 15, but with considerably newer and improved technology. For the SD-RED 60 this resulted in a lower price than the RED 50, despite the addition of the modular bay, PoE ports, etc.
