Discover more about Hosts and Services Search.

With Sophos Firewall v19.5 firmware now available for early access, we are covering one of the top new features every week leading up to launch.

Over the previous weeks, we’ve covered SD-WAN Load Balancing, Xstream TLS FastPath, Azure AD integration, and now this week, Hosts and Services Search.

In v19.5 you can now search all the objects among Hosts and Services by name, type or value using the new search bar at the top of each screen:

This is one of our top requested features and makes it super easy to find exactly what you’re looking for to avoid creating duplicate objects.
