Proven protection against modern day threats
You get fast, accurate scanning for viruses, spyware and active content using two parallel antivirus engines. Our Advanced Threat Protection combines multiple technologies to identify and block traffic to command and control hosts. Advanced packet filtering, network address translation (NAT), stateful inspection and network intrusion prevention system (IPS) technologies protect your network. You’ll easily see attacks targeting your resources and stop them by simply ticking a box. And our IPS is multicore engineered to run at maximum speeds on the latest processors.
Granular bandwidth visibility and control
Using our URL filter, select from over 100 categories and stop access to malicious and nonproductive websites, and set policies for certain users and particular times. A graphical flowmonitor shows everything as it happens, letting you maximize the bandwidth for what’s important and minimize it for what’s not. Our Deep Layer-7 inspection ensures true application identification for thousands of applications. We’ll automatically update these, and give you feedback on unclassified applications.
Connect remote offices with configurationless VPN
For remote workers, setting up client VPNs really couldn’t be easier. We provide users with a simple portal, letting them connect from any device, even smartphones and tablets. And when it comes to hooking up remote offices, we’ve really broken the mold. Sophos RED is a box that plugs in at any remote office and requires no onsite configuration. Connect it to the internet, register it centrally and the remote site instantly gets full UTM protection.
Intuitive management and detailed reporting
You’ll know what’s happening with your users and you’ll have complete control over all the features you need, with none of the complexity. Policies are easy to build and you get detailed reports as standard, stored locally with no separate tools required. Predefined and customizable reports show key web activity like domains visited and bandwidth consumed. And report anonymization hides user names, requiring the four-eyes-principle to unhide them.
Choose how to deploy
You can choose to install on your platform as hardware, software, virtual appliance or even in the cloud. Hardware appliances are purpose-built, high-performance devices. They integrate our security applications with a hardened operating system (OS) on optimized Intel-compatible server systems. See technical specifications. Software or virtual appliances easily install on your hardware of choice. Certified as VMware Ready and Citrix Ready. It also runs in Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM virtual environments. Cloud-based appliances using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) let you run an appliance in the cloud. Or, you can use the Amazon VPC connector on the appliance at your office for secure and robust access to your Amazon-hosted resources.
