Hardware Milestones

General hardware support policy for Sophos UTM, SG, XG series appliances, Sophos Access Points, and RED devices:

  • Lifecycle milestones are applied to a specific model, not to a specific revision of the model.
  • If EoS/EoL is announced for a specific model this applies to all revisions.
  • Older revisions of a model might not be supported by the most recent SW release. For more details, take a look at Sophos Network Security Hardware: Supported SW versions
