U.K.-based Sophos, a provider of IT security products, has unveiled Sophos Cloud, a simple, easy to implement cloud-managed security solution capable of addressing the latest network security threats by providing protection at the endpoint.
Kris Hagerman, CEO for Sophos, said, “Sophos Cloud is the answer to the constant struggle IT teams face in protecting and securing their enterprises. These IT teams may be as small as a single person, but the constant threats and challenges they face could overwhelm an army.”
Sophos Cloud enables an effective desktop security agent with integrated anti-malware, intelligent host-intrusion-prevention systems (HIPS) and device control. It also ensures malicious and inappropriate website filtering, with built-in Web malware scanning.
Also, the cloud can be easily managed allowing partners and IT managers at big and small enterprises to maintain endpoint security. All users can be protected 24/7 where ever they are on the road, at home or in the office by leveraging the cloud-based service. The new solution will deliver complete and powerful IT security to small and mid-market enterprises and organizations to simplify their IT security operations.
Since the management console is hosted by Sophos Cloud, the need for server set up is eliminated and the service can be deployed rapidly. Also, the encryption, endpoint security, Web, email, mobile and network security solutions offered by the company are backed by SophosLabs which is a global network of threat intelligence centers.
Back in September 2013, Sophos announced that it was positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner (News - Alert), Inc’s 2013 “Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection.” The quadrant is based on an assessment of a company’s market understanding, strategy and completeness of vision within the mobile data protection (MDP) industry.
MDP products protect access to secure data on storage systems in notebooks, removable media, desktops and servers. Buyers want common protection policies across multiple platforms, minimal support costs and proof of protection.
