Sophos Press Release

Sophos to provide centrally managed Network Access Control, anti-virus and firewall protection to company that is synonymous with innovation

Sophos has a 20 year history of innovative security solutions

Sophos, a world leader in IT security and control, today announced that GE, one of the world's most recognized brands, has completed an agreement to begin deploying Sophos's Security and Control solution beginning in 2007.

Under the terms of the agreement, Sophos may be deployed on up to 350,000 endpoints (laptops, desktops and servers) throughout the world and within every division of the company.

Seeking to improve manageability and reduce costs which arise from managing multiple solutions, GE will introduce Network Access Control (NAC) as well as anti-virus and client firewall protection that will provide IT administrators with the convenience and simplicity of the Sophos Security and Control solution.

"Companies want a single integrated agent that handles all aspects of endpoint security on each PC. Other vendors offer security suites that are little more than a bunch of separate applications bundled together, all vying for resources on the user's computer," said Steve Munford, CEO at Sophos. "Enterprises tell us that the tide has turned, and the place for NAC and integrated security is at the endpoint."
