Coming Soon: The New Sophos Switch Series

ProductsSophos Switch

Important dates and information on our upcoming product release

Sophos Switch is a highly anticipated addition to the Sophos product portfolio.

This week, we’re starting the enablement activities for Sophos Switch (together with ZTNA), as part of our Secure Access Portfolio. This post provides a few key dates for your diary and a snapshot of the models we plan to launch.

The Sophos Switch Series

The Sophos Switch Series will eventually consist of ten models, eight of which are planned for release from mid-December. We will offer models with 8, 24, or 48 ports, either 1GE or 2.5GE, and including various Power over Ethernet options. Together with Sophos Firewall and Sophos Wireless, this gives you a single vendor for network security, all managed in Sophos Central. This opens up completely new cross-sell and upsell opportunities to expand your Sophos footprint and strengthen your pitch by “selling the network stack”.

Channel Preview and Enablement

The Channel Preview on November 17 is intended to equip you with enough information to understand the product portfolio, positioning, and sales plays.

For the preview, we will have the first sales assets available via the Partner Portal which you can access via the Switch Product Page.

We have Sales SophSkills sessions planned for November 17th and Tech SophSkills on November 18th.
