Sophos Launches UTM 100 BasicGuard, Security Solution for Small Businesses
For organizations that need protection, but can't afford enterprise products
Small companies that want to benefit from comprehensive security solutions can now use the Sophos UTM 100 with BasicGuard – a new unified threat management appliance and software package.According to recent studies, small firms rely on pretty much the same IT as larger organizations. This means that they also need reliable security solutions.
However, in many cases they can’t afford to purchase enterprise-grade products.
This is where the Sophos UTM 100 BasicGuard steps in. BasicGuard comes with a number of features that are normally available only with advanced solutions, including web application control, network firewall and IPS, remote access and VPN, wireless protection, web antivirus and URL filter, and email antivirus and anti-spam.
Furthermore, the product is also recommended for firms that plan on expanding their operations in the future. Licenses can be easily upgraded to include even more advanced systems that meet the needs of a larger number of employees.
“Today's small businesses want a reliable set of core capabilities with full flexibility to expand features as their needs and budgets grow,” Chris Kraft, vice president of product management at Sophos, explained.
“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.”
