Simply effective protection

User-based security policies follow the user across devices, platforms, and locations, while serverbased policies provide granular control to balance performance and protection. Sophos threat protection employs the latest technologies such as web reputation, code emulation, and Malicious Traffic Detection as well as HIPS and buffer overflow protection, and much more. Our protection is backed by the Sophos Labs global network of threat research centers, which keeps you one step ahead of the threats with automatic updates and real-time lookups of suspicious content.

High-performance server protection & One-click Lockdown

Sophos Cloud Server Protection is the only solution offering cloud-managed server protection integrated with advanced anti-malware, HIPS and server application whitelisting/lockdown.

Effectively protect your servers and data from zero-day attacks.

By clicking a button, you can lock down your servers in a safe state. Server Authority automatically establishes and manages trusted changes, simplifying on-going maintenance as well. In addition, Sophos Cloud automatically recognizes your server applications and adapts the configurations and automatically sets scanning exclusions.

BYOD and MDM made easy

Mobile device management (MDM) in Sophos Cloud enables mobility for your users, keeping them productive-and your corporate data secure-on the move. With one policy you can set up Wi-Fi and email access and enforce security settings. And, you get clear visibility on all devices and policies from a single, unified management console.

Promote safe and productive web usage with Web Control

Web Control makes it easy to enforce safe and productive web usage, whether your users are at work, at home, or on the road. Predefined policies let you easily set policies to address security and compliance requirements. You can also set time-based policies to limit nonbusiness-related browsing during business hours. Effortlessly enforce web-filtering policies at the endpoint; no need for proxy servers, VPNs, or application-specific configuration.
