Today we’re pleased to announce the release of Sophos Cloud Web Gateway – the easy-to-deploy, easy-to-trial web security solution you’ve been searching for.
Sophos Cloud has experienced exponential revenue growth – in fact it’s by far the fastest growing Sophos product set. Already, it includes simple and effective endpoint, mobile and server solutions delivered from the cloud. Now it’s time for our Secure Web Gateway (SWG) to go to the cloud.
You may remember late last year Sophos acquired Mojave Networks. Since then, the Sophos and Mojave development teams have joined forces to integrate this great technology into Sophos Cloud. The result is enterprise-class web protection, features and reporting – all with Sophos Cloud simplicity.
“We are proud of our work at Mojave to pioneer a cloud-based approach to mobile and web security that offers unrivaled protection from malicious threats, security for mobile workers, and uniform policies across platforms,” says Garrett Larsson, Sophos Director of Product Management and former CEO of Mojave Networks.
“In today’s world employees are mobile and work across multiple devices. Securing the perimeter or a single device is no longer sufficient,” Garrett says. “Sophos Cloud endpoint and mobile products cover employees wherever they work and on whatever device they are using. Now, with the addition of a powerful web gateway, Sophos Cloud provides a full suite of enterprise-grade security solutions designed for the mid-market.”
Sophos Cloud Web Gateway comes with an impressive repertoire of reports to provide unrivaled insight into network usage, applications and threats, to help keep your sensitive data safe, control costs and comply with regulations.
This first release is restricted initially to customers in North America; worldwide support will follow soon afterwards.
Platforms supported at launch will be Windows 7 or higher and Mac OS X 10.8.5 or higher. Ultimately, Cloud Web Gateway will have support for Windows, Macs, Chromebooks, iOS and Android devices – making it ideal for mixed platform environments with users on the go.
Sophos Cloud Web Gateway launches with some significant infrastructure behind it to ensure great performance no matter where users are, with new cloud gateway locations being added every month to support customers worldwide. The team has done a great job in optimizing the gateways for the cloud, combining a great low-latency design and embracing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
Of course, if you prefer a hardware or virtual appliance, the new and improved Sophos Web Appliance provides an ideal alternative.
The innovation doesn’t stop here – the team is going to make some significant waves in 2016 with a hybrid Secure Web Gateway that will work like nothing else in the industry. Our next-generation Secure Web Gateway will offer a seamless migration path for both web appliance (SWA) and cloud customers, so your investment is protected whatever you choose today.
