Sophos Firewall renewal license keys will be auto-activated once the order is processed.

As part of our channel-best commitment, we constantly strive to remove friction for partners and make it easy to do business with us. That’s why we’re streamlining the way to activate renewal licenses.

Effective February 22, 2023, all Sophos Firewall renewal licenses will be auto-activated once the order is processed.

This means:

  • Manual license activation is no longer required for Sophos Firewall renewals as our system will automatically activate the renewal licenses. This will align with the existing practice for Central product renewals.
  • For renewals, there will be no license key, the license schedule will simply state the start and end dates for each product purchased.
  • There will be no changes to who gets the license schedule.

These changes apply to all Sophos Firewall renewal licenses across all platforms, whether XG, XGS, Virtual, or Software.

This is a major advancement towards efficiency, time-saving, and protecting customers. Some of our distributors have already been following the process described above for several months. In these cases, nothing will change for you.

Please reach out to your local Sophos representative if you have any questions.
