I have been trying to find the difference in security level vs availability for securing my email traffic.
I have subscription for both Email in XG and Sophos Central however i am not sure which to use.
Hi Akeem Mckenzie
Thank you for your post. Email protection in XG and Sophos Central Email protection are both excellent products. I am afraid we don't have a documentation explaining the differences between the both, however the best suggestion from us is to contact your Account manager and/or sales team to discuss your environment and what would suit better.
However, please find here few relevant KBAs to know about the concepts and configurations on both the subscriptions:
Sophos XG Email protection: https://docs.sophos.com/nsg/sophos-firewall/17.5/Help/en-us/webhelp/onlinehelp/nsg/sfos/concepts/EmailProtection.html
Sophos Central Email protection: https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/124703
Sophos XG Firewall Datasheets:

Hope this helps!

I will review those articles and ask my account manager.
I asked the question because we have both the subscription on the xg and sophos central and not sure which one to use.
Environment: 2 Xg (1 HQ and 1 Branch)
office 365 email
Offices are connected via Site-To-Site however if the hq is used for email security and that firewall is turned off for what ever reason everything will stop.
I don't see a way to use both firewall as email security server which is why i am confused in selecting a solution.
In reply to Akeem Mckenzie:
If Office 365 is apart of your mail routing you will want to use Sophos email over an XG..
If you are not using O365 or wish to do things like send mail site to site via vpn or similar, then the xg would be better.
In reply to Red_Warrior:
Currently all mail related routing is done through O365.
I will follow your advice and do the routing through Sophos Central.
