Making the move: Symantec to SophosMarch 9th, 2020 Posted by Dave Long Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Making the move: Symantec to Sophos”
As a Cage Data customer, you probably know that we’ve run Symantec’s antivirus product for years. It’s been a great product as the cyber security landscape has been plagued by ever changing strategies employed by the people that create viruses and vulnerabilities that have even effected the way we think about processor chips.
As the cyber security landscape has changed, we’ve been watching the vendors who design software and hardware to protect their customers. Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Sophos! Sophos’ cloud-based platform, Sophos Central, brings together their complete suite of products into a single platform which leverages Synchronized Security to make Intercept X, their endpoint security software, and their XG Firewall products work together.
Not only does Sophos offer security for your computers, servers and networks, but with Phish Threat, Cage Data offers customers phishing awareness training so that your employees know how to detect a malicious email. Phishing is the number 1 source of malicious attacks against businesses today, and the number 1 prevention method for these attacks is training to know what they look like. With Phish Threat, Cage Data assembles and sends out monthly simulated phishing attacks with follow-up training for anyone who clicks the links on the attack.
We will be transitioning all clients currently using Symantec Endpoint Protection over to Sophos Intercept X for both workstations and servers over the next 90 days.
If you have any questions or want to learn more about adopting Sophos’ Synchronized Security platform in your company, please reach out to us.
