Sophos XG Firewall is getting some great mentions in the media.
CRN has deemed it one of the 10 coolest network security products of 2016, while Network World featured it in a weekly roundup of “intriguing new products.”
CRN described the new features, support and availability:
Designed to secure business critical servers without sacrificing performance, Sophos Server Protection protects Windows and Linux servers from malicious attacks using a variety of traditional and next-gen methods, including Malicious Traffic Detection, Application Whitelisting (Lockdown), and soon CryptoGuard anti-ransomware capabilities.
Sophos now enables application and management of Server Protection policies for Amazon Web Services Auto Scaling Groups, and display valuable information about EC2 Instances in the Sophos Central management console.
With an ever-increasing level of sophistication of malware attacks and a continued surge in zero-day threats, networking vendors, cloud service providers and even security companies have to look to strengthen their existing platforms with easy-to-integrate and reliable security solutions.
Sophos has a rich history of developing innovative security solutions for enterprises. Today, our OEM group licenses our solutions to companies all over the world, allowing them to create new products faster, supplement their existing security offerings, and improve overall detection of malicious attacks.
We’re delighted to say that Kris Hagerman, our CEO and fearless leader, has been ranked 14th
in CRN’s Top 25 Most Influential Executives
and CRN’s Top 100 Executives (US). These two high profile lists recognize Kris as a leader and visionary in the channel, security sector and technology in general.
In building its shortlist of top influential executives, CRN says it looks for those who “through their vision, passion and fire have set the agenda for the channel and for the tech industry as a whole.”
Since joining Sophos in September 2012, Kris has certainly done that.
Kris took Sophos public in 2015 – the largest ever IPO in the UK for a software company – and under his leadership the company launched synchronized security, along with our revolutionary Security Heartbeat technology – a first of its kind in the industry.
We’re honored to announce that Sophos has won three distinguished categories in CRN’s 2016 Annual Report Card (ARC).
Following on from last year’s success, we were named overall winners in both the Network Security category and the Data Security category, as well as receiving the highly regarded Product Innovation award in the Endpoint Security category.
CRN’s study recognizes those technology vendors most highly praised by their solution provider partners, and for over three decades has been a benchmark for quality within the IT channel.
It’s official: the highly anticipated public beta for the Sophos XG Firewall v16 is now underway, and we’d love for you to get involved. The product team has been working furiously for the last several months making this one of the most ambitious and exciting product releases ever. It’s loaded with tons of new features and enhancements that we think you’re going to love.
We’re delighted to announce that independent experts CRN have recognized the Sophos Partner Portal by awarding it Best Partner Website 2016!
The Sophos Partner Portal is a one-stop-shop that gives our valued channel partners everything they need to support their customers. As part of our channel-first strategy we’re constantly enhancing the portal to make it as useful as possible for our partners, and we think this award is testament to the excellence of the Portal.
