Keep your network under control: Why network admins need complete application visibility
By Sophos | 29/5/2018

Next-gen firewalls are failing to deliver on their promise to provide application awareness. There’s an inherent limitation in the effectiveness of signature based application detection techniques that means the majority of app traffic on today’s networks is going unidentified and unchecked. It’s a significant and serious problem. It presents enormous security, productivity, performance, and compliance risks.

Fortunately, there’s an elegant and effective solution: Synchronized App Control leverages Sophos unique Security Heartbeat™ connection between Sophos Central managed endpoints and XG Firewall to share network application information with absolute clarity.

XG Firewall with Synchronized App Control is able to automatically identify, classify and control all unknown application traffic on the network. It’s a major breakthrough in network visibility and control that renders all other next-gen firewalls obsolete.
