Sophos has announced the launch of its security and data protection software.

 

Incorporating encryption and data protection capabilities into the existing range of endpoint, email and web security products, it reduces administration time by automating compliance-related responsibilities.

 

Any messages that are triggered by administrator-configured policy rules are automatically encrypted into a PDF container and secured using the password management options.

 

The message is then forwarded to the recipient, who simply opens the encrypted package on their computer from any email client. No network connection is required to view the encrypted messages, which can be customised using administrator-configured templates.

 

The company has also broadened the range of its Web Security and Control product line to introduce two new models, including a high performance appliance aimed at large organisations as well a high-value branch office model to provide added deployment flexibility.

 

A new line of security management appliances, that allow Web Security and Control customers to centrally manage and monitor multiple web appliances across one or more locations in real-time through a single dashboard, has also been introduced. 

 

Steve Munford, chief executive officer at Sophos, said: “IT teams are quick to tell us that their existing security products are too complex to manage and when they encounter issues, they then must deal with poor support from their current security vendors.

 

“Combine these frustrations with fact that many companies are rethinking their security strategy to better address data loss concerns and therein exists a tremendous market opportunity for Sophos.”
