Sophos Enhanced Support
Sophos Enhanced Support ensures that you have a point of contact when you have problems with your firewall. Support is available 24/7, including holidays, to answer all your questions and solve any problems, both by email and by phone.
Important to know
Enhanced Support is not a free pass to have the Sophos team take care of your firewall configuration at no cost. A support ticket should only be opened if a function of the firewall is no longer working properly in your opinion. Sophos Support will not accept requests because you lack the necessary knowledge to configure them. In such cases, please contact us so that we can configure the firewall as desired within the scope of our support conditions.
Incident levels and target times
Sophos Enhanced Support offers different incident levels based on the urgency and impact of the problem. This will help you understand the type of support you can expect for different types of problems. Incident levels are defined as follows:
- P1 - Critical: In the event of a critical system failure or other event that significantly impacts operations, Sophos's goal is to respond within 1 hour.
- P2 - High: For a high incident that significantly impacts operations but is not critical, Sophos aims to respond within 2 hours.
- P3 - Medium: For an incident that results in limited operation but is not critical, Sophos aims to respond within 8 hours of operation.
- P4 - Low: For low incidents or general requests, Sophos aims for a response within 24 hours of operation.
For more detailed information, you can visit the Sophos Incident Level web page.
If you are not satisfied with the support provided, Sophos Enhanced Support offers a clear escalation process. To escalate a support case, you can send an email to the support team requesting escalation, or you can also request escalation directly through the support portal.
This gives you added confidence in support and ensures that your concerns are always taken seriously and resolved quickly.
Sophos Enhanced Support ensures that your Sophos Firewall is always up to date. This service provides regular firmware updates that ensure optimal performance and security of your Sophos Firewall. In addition, new features are constantly being added to extend the functionality of your firewall.
Thanks to Sophos Enhanced Support, your Sophos Firewall is always provided with the latest pattern and feature updates. Pattern updates are installed automatically. However, your intervention is required for new features or bug fixes. Security hotfixes are also installed automatically if this default active feature has not been disabled.
By default, Sophos Firewall has 1 year manufacturer warranty. If the firewall is defective within this time, it will be replaced. After this year, the manufacturer's warranty is terminated. With Enhanced Support, the warranty period is extended to a maximum of 5 years, provided that the license is also extended.
Advance replacement in case of hardware failure
In the event of hardware failure, advance replacement is part of Sophos Enhanced Support. This means that Sophos will provide you with a replacement device in the event of a warranty claim. The RMA Device will be sent within 24h after opening the ticket. Here we explain how to open a support ticket for a case or RMA: How do I open a support ticket with Sophos?
Pay attention to transport routes
Please note that the replacement process and transportation of the new appliance may take at least 2-3 business days. For critical environments, we therefore recommend setting up an HA cluster.
Sophos Enhanced Support included in bundles
Sophos Enhanced Support is included in the following license bundles:
- Standard Protection
- Xstream Protection
- Epic Protection
If you wish to purchase only the Sophos Firewall Appliance, you can purchase the Enhanced Support license separately.
Why did I not get the full term when I activated my license key?
f the subscription to be activated is Enhanced Support or a bundle that includes Enhanced Support and the Firewall is out of warranty, then the term of the new subscription will be reduced to make up for the gap in warranty. Sophos performs a fair-value calculation based on the value of Enhanced Support to cover the gap and is capped at a maximum of six months. o, if the subscription to be activated is Enhanced Support and the previous subscription expired two months ago, the term of the new subscription will be reduced by two months. If the subscription is a bundle that includes Enhanced Support, then the term of the bundle is reduced by the number of days that is equivalent in value to Enhanced Support coverage for the gap. The calculations are based on the USD list price.
