IT security products have become as complex as the networks they’re trying to secure. At Sophos we know that the solution to complexity is not more complexity. We tackle security challenges with clarity and confidence, knowing that simple security is better security.
Sophos begin producing antivirus and encryption products nearly 30 years ago. Today our products help secure the networks used by 100 million people in 150 countries and 100,000 businesses, including Pixar, Under Armour, Northrop Grumman, Xerox, Ford, Avis, and Toshiba.
As IT networks grow in complexity, we’re focused on keeping IT security simple and reliable. We know that a proper security strategy must include networks, servers and devices—all devices—managed easily through the cloud.
Sophos products allow you to secure every end point of your network, from laptops to virtual desktops and servers, to web and email traffic and mobile devices. What’s more, securing these devices is made possible through products that fit your precise needs. We ensure your network’s security by providing the one thing no one else can: Simplicity.
The Sophos SG Series appliances are designed to provide the optimal balance between performance and protection – for diverse IT environments. Whether you need a solution for a small remote office, want to protect your school campus, or are a global organization requiring high-availability and enterprise-grade features, our SG Series appliances are an ideal fit.
Our broad product line-up makes it easy for you to choose the right appliance. A higher model number indicates higher throughput and an increased number of ports or connectivity options. And as every software subscription is available on every appliance, you can flexibly size the solution to fit your budget and your individual security needs. Next-generation firewall features or all-in-one security on a single box, it’s your choice.
Our appliances are built upon the most advanced Intel technology. Optimized use of multi-core processors allows consolidation of your security solutions without a performance trade-off. With faster than ever firewall, IPS and VPN throughput, our SG Series appliances effortlessly handle multiple tasks simultaneously. Plus, you can easily scale up by dynamically clustering up to 10 units without external load balancers.
Your network is constantly changing so your protection needs to be adaptive. All our appliances have integrated high-speed hard drives (in many cases SSDs) for local storage of spam quarantine data and faster access to comprehensive reports and real-time logs. Accelerated in-memory content scanning in secure proxy mode makes your defenses more effective and efficient.
Using the latest Intel technology, our products provide the utmost in flexibility. Add to your protection as you need it – without changing or upgrading your hardware. That means you benefit from future software and performance enhancements which guarantees the best possible value for money. Redundancy features such as an additional hard-drive or power supply are available on the 1U SG 450 and on both of our 2U appliances.
Configure your hardware to suit your infrastructure and change it as and when you need to. Our optional FleXi Port LAN modules give you the freedom to select the connectivity you need – copper, fiber, 10GbE – you decide. FleXi Port modules are interchangeable within a range, e.g. 1U, so, for example, you can use the same module with all of your 1U appliances which saves you money if you upgrade to a higher model at a later date.
Our SG 100 Series desktop models with integrated wireless are a very tidy solution for even the most compact office space. As the access point is built in, you do not require any extra hardware. Should you need additional coverage or have a larger space, you can add Sophos access points. Every one of our appliances has a built-in wireless controller for you to connect Sophos access points and manage them simply from your central management console.
