Sophos announced that its next-generation Sophos XG Firewall is now available on Sophos Central through an Early Access Program. The latest version of Sophos XG Firewall with lateral movement protection to prevent the spread of targeted, manual cyberattacks was launched earlier this month only.

With a dedicated partner dashboard, Sophos Central simplifies the management and response times of multiple customers for VARs and MSPs.

Sophos XG Firewall is available from registered Sophos partners worldwide and a free trial of XG Firewall is also available. Additional information about the XG Firewall can be found on Sophos.com.
