Sophos Expands Cloud-Managed Security Portfolio with Server Protection

19th November 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

sophosDubai, UAE, November 19, 2014: Sophos today launched the Sophos Cloud Server Protection, a high performance malware protection solution designed specifically for servers. The solution expands Sophos Cloud to a comprehensive security platform designed to protect desktops, laptops, mobile phones, tablets and now servers with the most effective and simplest to manage business security offering available.

Servers store large amounts of sensitive information and have become popular targets for cybercriminals. To secure servers, administrators have traditionally had to choose between desktop-oriented security software and complex, expensive server-specific security tools. Perhaps this is why two thirds of the IT professionals surveyed on Spiceworks identified the complexity of learning, configuring and maintaining server security software as an “important” or “very important” concern.

The new Sophos Cloud Server Protection solution delivers malware protection, host intrusion prevention and web security, as well as clear visibility into the current security status of all managed servers via a simple web-based interface. The new offering from Sophos is also the only server security product that can continually monitor the server environment, detect new applications on an ongoing basis and intelligently adjust policies to maintain operational efficiency.

“If compromising desktops is like stealing a wallet, then hacking a server is like robbing a bank,” said Bill Lucchini, SVP & GM for Sophos Cloud. “Today’s businesses need the most up-to-date protection, and Sophos Cloud Server Protection gives overtaxed IT personnel an innovative, high performance and simple to manage solution for securing server environments.”

“As part of the recent Sophos Cloud beta program, I was able to preview the Server Protection functionality added into the product,” said Scott Hartung, IT Director, The Rivett Group . “We currently use Sophos Cloud to protect our Windows, Mac, and mobile devices. I like the fact that Sophos truly understands server security, and I can see that this new version of Sophos Cloud will help me reduce the time spent on maintaining server security.”

“We are finding that more of our customers are trying to support a geographically diverse workforce,” said Pete Greco, VP of Sales and Technology, Productive Corporation. “Sophos Cloud with Server Protection provides comprehensive visibility and manageability, regardless of where employees and their devices are located. With Sophos, we are certain our clients’ workforce is both secure and available.”
