Uniquely simple and imminently affordable, RED provides an elegant solution to building a secure distributed network.

  4. Work seamlessly with Sophos Wireless Access Points
  5. Apply the same protection to all locations or customize it to meet your needs
  6. Easy maintenance with automated updates

Plug-and-protect deployment

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

Flexible configuration

Set up your 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 may choose to only route inter-office network traffic via RED, while enabling direct Internet access from the remote location.

Secure encrypted tunnel

All data between the RED and your firewall is encrypted to the strongest AES-256 levels ensuring a tamper- and hack-proof, secure connection. And with our latest XG and SG Series, encryption performance makes this level of protection completely transparent.

Easy centralized management

Since RED is effectively a virtual Ethernet cable connecting your remote locations, centralized management of your distributed network is as easy as managing a single location. You can choose to apply the same firewall, web and other security policies across both local and remote traffic. Or you can create custom policies by location.

Choose your RED

Our RED devices are built on the latest enterprise-class, high-speed networking platforms. They work with your Sophos UTM/ firewall appliance (hardware, software, virtual or Cloud). Our full range of Sophos Wireless Access Points are also compatible with Sophos RED.


To use a Sophos RED you will need an active Network Protection subscription for either Sophos UTM or Sophos XG Firewall.
