XG FirewallWe’ve created a comprehensive library of “How-To” videos to help you get the most out of your Sophos XG Firewall, including a series of Getting Started and Networking videos.

Today I’d like to share a video giving you a quick tour of the XG Firewall admin console.

  • Use the help menu and admin dropdown for convenient access to information about your firewall.
  • Get real-time insights into your system status.
  • Use the flip-card view to reveal additional information about any widget.
  • Access network diagnostic tools, graphs and historical data.
  • View and download important risk reports.
  • Use the Active Policies widget for policy housekeeping.
  • Use the product navigation menus for easy access to various dashboards, policies, reports and protection configuration options.

You can watch the entire Getting Started video series on the Sophos YouTube channel.
