Sophos for Network Storage Product Architecture

Real-time Protection

Detect and block malware before it has a chance to wreak havoc on your network. Our onaccess scanner has a small footprint but big functionality, protecting against both known malware and zero-day threats. Multi-layered protection goes beyond signatures, with preexecution emulation, our unique Behavioral Genotype technology and Live Protection for real-time lookups in the cloud.

Broad Platform Support

Ensure seamless integration with your existing systems, thanks to our compliance with the ICAP standard and our support for EMC’s Celerra Anti Virus Agent (CAVA) and NetApp’s 7-mode and C-mode scanning.

Efficient Scaling

Increase performance and reliability by setting up multiple scanning servers, providing load balancing or failover capability. If you use NetApp’s Data ONTAP, you can also employ full many-to-many clustering for maximum efficiency.

Malware infections, system issues and maintenance windows are not limited to business hours. That’s why Sophos provides 24/7/365 support standard - so you can get help when you need it. The prestigious SCP certification recognizes our commitment to providing effective, responsive support.
