Sophos introduces new security suites
Web Protection, Data Protection, Complete Security are designed to address developing security challenges
Sophos has introduced three new Complete Security Suites; Web Protection, Data Protection and Complete Security, which are designed to offer Sophos partners the tools they need to help their clients address evolving enterprise security challenges, such as the rise of consumerisation, the rise of advanced persistent threats, and an increase in malware.
"The evolution of Sophos technology and the new ‘Complete Security Suites' represent a clear and forward-looking vision to manage the advanced multi-vectored threats businesses face," said Robert Newburn, head of Information Security and Managed Services, Trustmarque. "Security never stands still and neither does Sophos. Through significant in-house development and tactical acquisitions they have built a compelling set of integrated technologies simplifying security management, driving down administration costs and offering customers a mature set of proven tools to protect the endpoint, mobile devices and Gateway."
The Complete Security Suites combine key functions such as endpoint, data and web and email protection, along with mobile device management and protection for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint.
"As a managed service provider, we are our clients' IT departments, so keeping management costs down is critical to our business," said Marcus Bearden, vice president of technology, Carceron "The centralised management of Sophos' Complete Security Suites will reduce our administrative costs, thus reducing costs for our customers-a true win-win. Additionally, they will allow us to offer our clients a better value than an a la carte model while satisfying all their security needs."
The Complete Security Suites are also designed to shorten the sales cycle for Sophos partners as clients no longer have to evaluate individual solutions in order to solve each security challenge. Instead, they are able to offer solutions that work together across all points.
"Our clients face an ever-changing variety of new security challenges. Since IT managers are already tasked with accomplishing more while using fewer resources, we need to provide solutions that quickly address all the different aspects of IT security," said Stephen Merritt, software partner manager, SHI International. "Evaluating multiple security solutions is time consuming for both us and our customers, so the ability to present a single, dynamic and scalable bundle that meets all a customer's security needs helps keep their focus on other initiatives within an environment they are confident is secure."
