Connectivity at the LAN Edge
The Sophos Switch Series provides secure, scalable Ethernet access for your wired and wireless devices and puts your LAN connectivity fully under your control.
Devices, devices everywhere
Many businesses have pieced together a colorful range of network equipment in an attempt to somehow make connectivity work amid rapidly changing requirements. Sophos switches provide a simple solution to connect an ever-increasing range of devices to your network.
Segmentation for security
A security approach to network segmentation often begins at your switch. Configure virtual local area networks (VLANs) to segment your internal traffic and reduce the attack surface in case of an infection or breach. Secure VLANs can prevent guest devices from adding risk and enhance security at the access layer.
SMB and SD-Branch
Ideal for remote and home offices, small and medium-sized businesses, retail outlets and branch offices, Sophos switches come in a range of sizes to suit the connectivity needs of many organizations.

Access Layer Switch Range
The Sophos Switch Series offers a range of network access layer switches to connect and power the devices connecting to the Local Area Network (LAN), while adding security controls and segmentation at the all-important LAN edge.
We offer two different series within our model range:
- 100 Series models offer 1 GE ports plus either SFP or SFP+.
- 200 Series models are equipped with 2.5 GE and 1 GE ports plus SFP+ (varies by model).
Each series includes models with 8, 24 and 48 ports.
Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows you to both connect and power your PoE-capable devices, such as access points, security cameras and IP phones, via a single Ethernet cable. Your management interface of choice provides visibility into the power consumption and the remaining PoE budget.
While most 24- and 48-port models will find their future home in a rack, our entry-level 8-port models are also suitable for wall mounting or desktop use, making them the ideal choice for deployments outside of the standard datacenter environment. All switches come with a suitable mounting kit.
One Vendor. One View.
The Sophos Switch Series is both the perfect addition to your existing Sophos product portfolio and offers customers, MSPs, and resellers a single vendor for the full network stack.
Less complexity, less risk
Rather than adding complexity and security risk, Sophos switches seamlessly integrate with your existing Sophos solutions and so remove the risks of multi-vendor deployments.
