How it Works

Email Appliance

Dedicated or Unified

You can choose a dedicated purpose-built email appliance, or a secure email gateway integrated into your UTM. Both products offer unparalleled message security, encryption and ease-of-use.

Sophos Email Appliance is ideal if you want an appliance dedicated to message security with advanced DLP and easy policy-based encryption. Or, if you prefer consolidating your network security into a single appliance, our UTM with integrated email protection is for you.



Effective Anti-Spam

Keep your inboxes free of spam and phishing attacks.

  • Reputation filtering blocks 90% of spam at the gateway, before it consumes any of your network resources
  • An anti-spam engine catches the rest, including the latest phishing attacks
  • Filters incoming email using a variety of advanced detection methods, across dozens of languages

Transparent DLP & Encryption

Encrypt and digitally sign your sensitive email—automatically and transparently. Stop inadvertent data leakage and make compliance easy, with our advanced DLP and policy-driven encryption.

Message bodies and attachments are automatically scanned for sensitive data and you can easily establish policies that determine if those emails are blocked or encrypted with just a few clicks. Alternatively, give users the option to encrypt emails themselves with our Outlook plugin.

The best part is, our unique patent-pending SPX Encryption allows users to manage their encrypted mail in their preferred email client—online, offline, desktop or mobile, it doesn’t matter. Email encryption has never been simpler for users or administrators. In our UTM, you can also use standardized S/MIME or OpenPGP to guard privacy and ensure authenticity of secure messages. And as you might expect, no client software is required.

Advanced Threat Protection

Protect your users from the latest identity theft, password and banking scams and other incidents. Keep users productive by intercepting all emails containing suspicious content, attachments or URLs.

We employ the latest antivirus and phishing detection technology that constantly updates in real-time to detect the latest threats. We also block unwanted content using MIME type and extension filters.



Self-Serve Quarantine

With our UTM, you can give employees direct control over their spam quarantine, saving you time and effort.

Employees can manage their own spam whitelist, review, release and delete spam, and find out what happened to messages that were deleted because of a virus or blacklisted.

The user portal supports 15 different local languages and offers a customizable HTML Welcome page.



Simple Management

At Sophos, simplicity is our mantra. You’ll have complete control over all the security features you need all in one place, with none of the complexity.

We've invested heavily in streamlining our interface. This way you won't have to reach for the manual every time you need to update a policy or change a setting. So you're never more than a couple clicks from completing your task.



Complete On-Box Reporting

Our built-in reporting means you’ll know exactly what's happening with your users. Fix problems fast and shape your policies, keeping your users secure while boosting network performance. And, you get detailed reports as standard, stored locally with no separate tools required.

At-a-glance flow graphs show usage trends with predefined and customizable reports, providing key web activity. Report anonymization hides user names, requiring the four-eyes-principle to unhide them.



Flexible Deployment

Our Email Appliances and UTMs are both available as a virtual appliance, or as a hardware model sized to fit any business.

Cluster your dedicated email appliances for redundancy, performance and easy management. If you choose email protection as part of your UTM, you can centrally manage multiple appliances with our free UTM Manager.
