Sophos Expands Cloud-Managed Security Portfolio With Server Protection

Sophos, a global provider of encryption, endpoint security, web, email, mobile and network security solutions, has released its Sophos Cloud Server Protection, a high performance malware protection solution designed specifically for servers. The solution expands Sophos Cloud to a comprehensive security platform designed to protect desktops, laptops, mobile phones, tablets and now servers. 

Servers store large amounts of sensitive information and have become popular targets for cybercriminals. To secure servers, administrators have traditionally had to choose between desktop-oriented security software and complex, expensive server-specific security tools.

The new offering from Sophos is also able to continually monitor the server environment, detect new applications on an ongoing basis and intelligently adjust policies to maintain operational efficiency.
