Computers and servers

This feature is in Beta. Questions or feedback? See Sophos Central Open Beta community.

The Computers and servers page lets you manage your protected computers and servers.

This new-look Beta page will eventually replace the current separate pages for computers and servers. The old pages will remain while we add more functions to the new page.

You'll see these differences in the new page:

  • You can see all your devices in one place.
  • By default, you now see devices even if they've been inactive for more than 30 days.
  • You can filter devices with easy-to-use, multi-faceted filtering.

This Beta version doesn’t let you take actions like installing software or deleting devices yet. Just go back to the original Computers or Servers page to do that.
