Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers a cloud computing platform that’s reliable, flexible and affordable. And we’re excited to offer a complete network security solution that fits seamlessly into AWS. Sign up to join our webcast on Thursday, December 12th, explaining how to take a test drive of Sophos UTM in AWS.
Sophos network security expert Bill Prout will show you how Sophos UTM in AWS provides all the features you need to protect your Virtual Private Cloud and EC2 instances, while providing secure connections for remote users, locations or across AWS regions.
This new release adds Windows 8.1 and IPv6 support as well as other smaller features.
To help you better understand and mitigate the risk from APTs, we’d like to invite you to attend the Advanced Persistent Threat webcast on Thursday, December 5th, presented by the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC) and featuring Chet Wisniewski, Sophos Senior Security Advisor.
Advanced persistent threat (APT) is a popular buzz phrase in the IT security world these days, but it’s often misunderstood. According to a recent report by the Ponemon Institute, 33% of IT professionals surveyed are unsure how to define the term.
Essentially, APTs are sneaky and hard-to-detect malware that stay on your network, often aimed at stealing financial account information.
New research conducted by the Ponemon Institute on behalf of Sophos shows that small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) face significant risk due to management’s lack of awareness and low prioritization of cyber security.
The survey results from the Risk of an Uncertain Security Strategy report offer revealing and sometimes disconcerting insights into the state of security for SMBs.
Does anyone work at a desk anymore? Even when people are working in the office, they move around with their laptops and expect constant connectivity to a Wi-Fi network. Plus, you’ve got guests and contractors in your office who also need Wi-Fi connections.
With all of these people relying on your wireless network, keeping them secure is a big task. We can help you learn best practices for setting up, managing and securing all your Wi-Fi access points. Join our free webcast for tips from one of our wireless and network security experts, Bill Prout.
In previous blog posts in this series, we’ve noted how Sophos UTM provides the ideal security solution for your Amazon Cloud infrastructure and how it not only provides complete protection, but how it’s completely elastic.
In this post, we’d like to cover a few of the ways you can get started with a Sophos UTM using Amazon Web Services (AWS).
If you’re familiar with Amazon Web Services (AWS), you love Amazon’s Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2) Auto Scaling. It allows you to scale your capacity up or down automatically, according to conditions you define. And we’re bringing this feature to Sophos UTM for AWS. Now, you can seamlessly scale up during demand spikes to maintain performance, or minimize costs by scaling back automatically during demand lulls.
In our previous blog post, we covered how Sophos UTM and the Amazon Cloud go perfectly together. But we also wanted to let you know we’re actively working to support auto-scaling groups for the Sophos UTM. True to EC2 auto scaling, it will allow you to expand a UTM “swarm” when your network needs it and contract it during lulls to save money.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) delivers a cloud computing platform that’s reliable, flexible and affordable. And Sophos is unique in offering a complete network security solution that fits seamlessly into this great ecosystem. In fact, we make network security in AWS simple.
AWS offers the ability to build a scalable data center in the cloud, complete with reliable storage, low-latency networking, and even application tools. You can quickly and easily provision the infrastructure you need without any capital investment—it’s all pay-as-you-go. And you enjoy all the economies of scale that come with sharing a massive global infrastructure with hundreds of thousands of other AWS customers.
Sophos customers will take Sophos UTM for a Test Drive on Amazon Web Services (AWS) this week in Las Vegas, at the AWS re:Invent gathering of developers and technical leaders from the AWS community.
Working with partner 8K Miles, a global cloud services provider and an early AWS Premier Consulting Partner, we created a dedicated cloud-enabled UTM running in AWS for customers to easily evaluate and test a variety of use cases. Customers get a view into how Sophos UTM running in AWS looks and feels while moving about the environment.
We are very excited to unveil the next release of Sophos UTM. Our developers have been hard at work these past months making UTM 9.2 our biggest release so far, and it shows; UTM 9.2 has an amazing array of new capabilities.
The UTM 9.2 Beta is open to anyone who would like to participate throughout the next months leading up to the GA release in January 2014. As always, Sophos UTM is completely free for home use, letting you secure and control your home network. Read on for the full details of how you can get your hands on our latest technology to test before it is released globally.
