The new Sophos switches are the perfect solution for connecting devices on your network or powering them via PoE. With port security and VLAN segmentation, you can control access to your network and add Quality of Service for a smooth, reliable experience. Sophos Central makes it easy to manage your switches, and they can be centrally managed in one console along with your other Sophos security solutions.
The Sophos CS101-8 switch has 8 ports with 1 GBit/s throughput. This switch does not provide PoE ports.
Multiple ways to manage your Sophos switch
Managing the Sophos Switch CS101-8 is easy with Sophos. You can configure either locally via the web interface or the CLI (command line). With an additional support and services license, the CS101-8 switch can even be integrated and configured via Sophos Central.
Easy setup and deployment
Sophos switches make setup and deployment a breeze. Simply enter your serial number in Sophos Central and click “Register” to start the process – in minutes your switch will be up and running!
Connectivity that many companies need
Sophos’ switches are the ideal solution for many organizations of all sizes, from remote and home offices to small and medium businesses and branch offices. Add switches to extend your SD Branch deployments by leveraging Sophos’ full range of Secure Access products for LAN and Service Edge access.
One provider for your entire network package
Supporting different vendors can be difficult, for example, when it comes to applying new updates or installing new versions. This often requires coordination between multiple parties, which can be tedious. With the new switches, the only vendor you need in your network stack is Sophos. Seamless integration with your existing Sophos infrastructure makes single-vendor deployment a reality across many networks around the world.
