Set network access

Sophos Mobile doesn’t control the network access by itself. Instead, it provides a compliance status that can be used by Sophos Wireless to block network communication.


Sophos Mobile doesn’t support Network Access Control for the following devices because their MAC address isn’t available:

  • Apple User Enrollment devices
  • Macs

To set the network access for selected devices, do as follows:

  1. On the menu sidebar, click Devices.
  2. On the Devices page, select the devices for which you want to configure network access.
  3. Click Actions > Set network access.
  4. Select one of the following:

    • Allow: Network access is always allowed.
    • Deny: Network access is always denied.
    • Auto mode: Network access is allowed or denied depending on a device’s compliance status.
  5. Click Yes to save the changes.
