Sophos SD-RED 60 Remote Ethernet Device (R60ZTCHEUK)
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.
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.
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
Flexible connectivity options, including 3G/4G/LTE, copper, fiber, Wi-Fi, and PoE (SD-RED 60 only)
When managed through an XG Firewall (Network Protection subscription required for management), Synchronised SD-WAN allows you to benefit from the power of Synchronised Security and XG Firewall’s integration with Sophos Intercept X to optimise WAN path selection for your important business applications with 100% reliability.
Flexible WiFi and WAN connectivity
This SD-RED device comes equipped with a modular bay, allowing you to tailor connectivity to your needs. This provides flexible, reliable WAN connectivity without the incompatibility issues experienced with USB dongles and similar add-on solutions. Sophos' 3G/4G module (sold separately) has been tested using numerous Internet Service Providers in many countries. Two (2) external antennas provide superior network coverage vs other add-on solutions. Alternatively, Sophos' 802.11ac Wave 2 (WiFi 5) module (sold separately) can be added to your SD-RED device to provide WiFi connectivity at your remote sites. Two (2) external antennas ensure that the network coverage is optimised.
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 Sophos' XG and SG series (sold separately), protection is completely transparent across your distributed network and can be customised or replicated to suit your needs.
