Intercept X

Sophos in Schools

An increasing number of schools are suffering at the hands of ransomware – a trend that Sophos has seen grow significantly over the last six months. Often these attacks can take days or even weeks to recover from. Now, at least one new organization per week is seeking protection from Sophos after an attack.

Protect yourself against these attacks with Sophos Intercept X.

Sophos Intercept X

Sophos XG Firewall offers end-to-end protection for your classrooms and labs, blocking unknown threats with a comprehensive suite of advanced protection. Optimized for schools, it delivers all the protection, filtering and monitoring insights you need in a single, affordable appliance.

High performance and availability for critical resources

Ensure a healthy balance between academic freedom for your users and security for your network and data. Assign user-based web access policies to ensure safe and productive internet usage. Shape bandwidth usage by users, web category, and applications to ensure high quality of service for important applications and prevent low-priority traffic from slowing down critical system resources.

Secure personal and research data

Secure sensitive data like PII of students, alumni, and staff and critical research material by students, researchers, and staff from random and targeted attacks.

Safe wireless environments

Offer safe and reliable wireless networks to students, staff and guests who connect using mobile devices including laptops, tablets and mobile phones, to foster a flexible learning environment. Our full range of wireless access points can be seamlessly managed through a Sophos firewall or in the cloud to offer complete threat protection for your user devices. Offer easy-to-manage guest access limited by data volume or time to restrict access to authorized users and tailor connectivity across all areas of the campus.

Connect and collaborate for less with SD-WAN

Sophos XG Firewalls integrate SD-WAN, enabling you to connect schools in your district for less by replacing expensive MPLS connections with lower-cost services such as cable, DSL and 3G/4G/LTE. Securely exchange personal student and faculty information and financial transactions, manage the growth of personal and school-issued devices, and keep pace with changing educational technologies and applications.
