Sophos UTM 9.5 – easier, faster and more flexible

Drawing on your feedback and requests, we have developed Sophos UTM 9.5. This latest update of our award-winning unified threat management (UTM) platform makes managing your IT security easier, faster and more flexible.

And, it includes new features for Web Application Firewall and our next-gen sandboxing technology, Sophos Sandstorm.

So, what does this update include?

Sophos Sandstorm Enhancements

  • Datacenter location selection option for Sophos Sandstorm without relying on DNS based location detection
  • Sandstorm activity reporting expanded to include email attachments for improved visibility

  • WAF protection and authentication policy templates were added for common Microsoft services for protection and authentication
  • Configure minimum allowed TLS version to improve security
  • WAF Proxy Protocol Support to use the client IP info inside the ProxyProtocol header to make policy decisions and improve logging

Management and Reporting Enhancements
