Location awareness

Location awareness is a feature of Sophos Client Firewall that assigns a firewall configuration to each network adapter on a computer, depending on the current location of the computer's network adapters.

The most common scenario in which this feature is used is where an employee has a company laptop and works from home. They are using two network connections simultaneously:

In this scenario, you need the office configuration to be applied to the virtual office connection and the non-office, generally more restrictive, configuration to be applied to the non-office ISP connection.

Note: The non-office configuration requires sufficient rules to allow the "virtual" office connection to be established.
