Central Management

Scaling Sophos Web Appliances to handle large numbers of users is accomplished by using multiple Web Appliances that are centrally managed by a Sophos Management Appliance. The Management Appliance provides centralized configuration, centralized policy management, and consolidated reporting.

The Configuration > System > Central Management page serves three different functions, depending on the type of appliance, or the current operating mode. For more information see “Grouping Web Appliances”.
