Devices

View information about the connected devices.

Connected devices are listed with name, MAC address, IP address, username, vendor, access point, SSID, Security Heartbeat, connection speed, and band.

Security Heartbeat categorizes devices by their security status. Devices are protected by Sophos Endpoint Protection or Sophos Mobile as appropriate. Administrators can set up rules to manage the devices. If these rules are broken the software reports the threat and the devices's security heartbeat status reflects this.

The username will be displayed for any client that has signed in using the following authentication types:

  • Encryption mode - WPA2 Enterprise.
  • Captive portal - Backend authentication.
  • Captive portal - Social login authentication.

You can also search for a specific device by using name, MAC address, IP address, or vendor details.

To export the device list, click Export to CSV.

You can filter devices by selecting Online, Offline, and Online and Offline.

Client at risk: Indicates that active malware or ransomware has been found. This blocks all internet traffic and only traffic from the secured browsing environment (walled garden or safe URL list) is allowed.

Note If an endpoint or mobile is in the red (high risk) state, you need to refresh the browser twice to access the walled garden. You can also download or update Sophos Anti-Virus from here.

No Security Heartbeat™: Indicates that Sophos Endpoint or Sophos Mobile Control is not installed on the listed devices.

Security Heartbeat categorizes devices based on the following:

Client might be at risk: Indicates that a potentially unwanted application (PUA) or inactive malware has been detected. All traffic is allowed.

Client is protected: Indicates that the endpoint is healthy and all traffic is allowed.

Missing Security Heartbeat™: (applicable only for endpoint) Indicates that the device is connected but the endpoint has not been sending heartbeat for 90 seconds.
