Advanced protection from web malware
Our advanced web protection engine intelligently scans web content and blocks the latest web threats. We accomplish this by using advanced techniques like JavaScript emulation, behavioral analysis, context-sensitive inspection, and dynamic URL analysis for both HTTP and HTTPS traffic. And unlike other web gateways, you get all this protection without sacrificing any performance. The new Sophos Sandstorm* enhances targeted attack protection, visibility, and analysis. Sandstorm complements our advanced web protection engine to quickly and accurately detect, block, and respond to evasive threats using powerful cloud-based, next-generation sandbox technology.

Granular web controls
Youll be up and running in minutes with safe web browsing policies that minimize legal and workplace concerns around inappropriate content. With just a few additional clicks you can enforce browsing quota times. And, our new granular controls for social web applications like Facebook or YouTube let you disable specific features such as chat, games or comments.

Stop rogue users and enforce safe search
In addition to blocking common anonymizing proxy sites, we also dynamically identify proxy abuse in real-time, helping you put a stop to rogue users trying to bypass corporate policy. You can also activate safe search and monitor inappropriate search terms to keep your environment safe.

Rich reporting provides unrivalled insight
Detailed reporting is standard, stored locally with no separate database servers or appliances required. Whether you need standard user-activity reports or custom reports with extensive drill down for deep forensic investigations, the Sophos Web Appliance has you covered.

Extend your protection everywhere
Add Sophos Endpoints to extend your protection everywhere users go. The endpoint provides full web protection and policy enforcement off the network, with no need to backhaul traffic or use a VPN. Policy and reporting logs sync automatically via the cloud with your web appliance, so its like they never left the office.
