Sophos Cloud brings simple, user-based approach to SMEs and partners.

IT security firm Sophos recently conducted a survey polling IT managers, and its results highlighted the growing challenge of device diversity across their organisations.

Tapping on this need for integration, Sophos has announced that its latest version of Sophos Cloud will be able to fill this gap. It is apparently the only cloud-managed security service that is able to manage Windows, Mac and mobile devices from a single console.

According to its media statement, Sophos Cloud is a cloud-based solution targeted at small- and mid-sized organisations that are seeking a simpler approach to IT security.

Besides delivering effective mobile management, the vendor also claims that Sophos Cloud’s security is top-notch as it features user-based management, reporting and licensing; built-in web security to prevent user access to malicious and infected websites, and new policy-based Web Control features to enforce safe and productive web usage.

“We’re pleased to deliver this new release of Sophos Cloud, as it’s another positive step in our strategy to use the cloud to create new, innovative solutions to the ever-increasing security challenges faced by small and mid-market businesses today,” said Bill Lucchini, vice president and general manager of Sophos Cloud.

“Sophos Cloud is a differentiated offering that enables IT professionals to simplify security management without compromising users’ demands for usability and performance.  We continue to address the market’s desire for powerful simple-to-use solutions to combat the evolving threat landscape. Sophos security delivered with cloud simplicity is clearly resonating with our customers and partners,” he added.
