Sophos provides an authentication client for Windows and Mac OS so that users directly authenticate at Sophos UTM. This gives you user-based control on web surfing and network traffic by, for example, creating firewall rules based on user networks or group networks. Additionally, wherever possible, IP addresses, hostnames, and the like are replaced by usernames to provide a better readability of reporting data and objects.
Note – In , user network objects authenticated via client authentication will always be shown as unresolved due to performance reasons.
This page shows the Transparent Client Authentication status, online users connected and enables you to configure Client Authentication and the Sophos Transparent Authentication Suite.
