Active Directory Sync

You can import users and user groups from Active Directory to Sophos Central.

In Settings, on the Active Directory Sync page, you can select the Active Directory service you want to use.

  • There is a download link for the Sophos Central Active Directory synchronization utility.
  • In Endpoint Protection and Email Gateway you can use Azure Active Directory synchronization instead.
    Note If you are using Office 365 you must use Azure Active Directory synchronization.

For instructions on setting up the utility, see the Active Directory setup instructions. Once you have set up synchronization you can review its status and other settings.

For instructions on configuring Azure Active Directory synchronization, see the Azure Active Directory setup instructions. Once you have set up synchronization you can review its status and other settings.

Note Azure Active Directory synchronization does not support Azure Active Directories that contain data migrated from on-premise Active Directories.
Note Sophos Azure Active Directory synchronization can be used with Sophos Endpoint Protection and Sophos Email. It has not been tested with other Sophos products.
