With Sophos UTM 100, small businesses have access to enterprise-grade security at a fraction of the cost
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, November 14, 2012 –In response to increasing market demand for small business security solutions, and as part of its compete security strategy, Sophos today announced the release of a comprehensive new unified threat management appliance and software package exclusively for small businesses. The Sophos UTM 100 appliance with BasicGuard sets a new standard for feature-rich small business security solutions—offering network, email, web and wireless protection together.
According to a recent IDC Report, “Small and medium-sized businesses have as much need for information technology as much larger companies. They also require security because they are a target of cybercriminals, but there are unique issues that prevent SMBs from just buying what large enterprises purchase.”
BasicGuard includes many of the capabilities typically reserved for enterprise solutions, such as:
• Web Application Control features
• Network Firewall & IPS
• Remote Access and VPN
• Wireless Protection
• Web antivirus and URL filter
• Email antivirus and anti-spam capabilities
“Today’s small businesses want a reliable set of core capabilities with full flexibility to expand features as their needs and budgets grow,” said Chris Kraft, vice president, product management, Sophos. “Complete security shouldn’t be out of reach for small businesses. We believe they shouldn’t have to compromise between security and budgets, which is why we developed the UTM 100—enterprise features and the ability to upgrade, at an attractive price point.”
Sophos was also recently named a winner in the Security category at CRN’s 9th annual Tech Innovator awards ceremony—for Sophos UTM 9.
The Sophos UTM 100 appliance is available now in Malaysia, from accredited Sophos Distributors and Resellers, at a list price of US$695 - which includes a BasicGuard subscription for one year with 25 maximum recommended users.
