Sophos EC migration to Cloud.

Hi
Does anyone have any pointers for migrating Sophos enterprise console to the portal?
Have they removed the firewall product from the portal?
Thanks

For migration, you need to download and run the free Migration Tool.  It is available at Sophos.com/cloud-migration installs on your Sophos Enterprise Console server. It will evaluate your environment and tell you exactly which endpoints are ready for automatic migration. Note the tool cannot migrate computers managed by Sophos Enterprise Manager. If you’re not quite ready to move all devices you may like to consider a staged approach. For example, maybe all the end users at your remote sites would be better suited to the easier management of a Cloud based solution. Overall, I suggest you check out the planning guidance
Planning migration
You can migrate your computers to Sophos Cloud by following these key steps:

Review Important considerations and plan the migration accordingly.
Check migration prerequisites. See Migration prerequisites.
Install the Sophos Cloud Migration Tool. See Installing the Sophos Cloud Migration Tool.
Assess computers for Cloud readiness. See Check which computers can be migrated.
Migrate computers to Sophos Cloud. See Migrate computers.
If you have migrated all endpoint computers and none are managed by the on-premise management console, you can manually migrate the on-premise management server to Sophos Cloud. See Migrate the on-premise management server.

For the Firewall, Central no longer support endpoint agent but rather support partner management of physical FW via Sophos Central. See this
Sophos Central offers many of the same management features as our on-premise endpoint products. There are a few capabilities, however, that are not currently available in Cloud:
Ì Sophos Client Firewall
Ì Data control
Ì Patch assessment
Ì Role-based administration (coming soon to Sophos Central)
In addition, Sophos Central does not include PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange or Sophos for Network Storage (NetApp, EMC, etc.).
