US law firm chooses Sophos Endpoint Security and Control

Kilpatrick Stockton is protecting its computers with Sophos Endpoint Security and Control.

Sophos, a world leader in IT security and control, today announced that Kilpatrick Stockton, one of the largest US law firms*, has selected Sophos Endpoint Security and Control to protect its desktops against viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, adware, potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and hackers. Additionally, the firm included Sophos Premium Support Service to its license to incorporate a Service Level Agreement in addition to the around-the-clock unlimited support, 365 days a year.

After re-evaluating its endpoint security, Sophos Endpoint Security and Control was selected as the best fit for the firm based on the intuitive console, small and uncomplicated updates, integrated spyware and adware protection and the ability to control applications. Kilpatrick is now benefiting from Sophos's automatic updates - pulled, rather than the traditional pushing method used by other vendor solutions. This process eliminates the need to manually patch the software, ensuring all clients are always running the most up-to-date version.

Kilpatrick Stockton purchased Sophos through Platinum Channel Partner, Software House International (SHI) headquartered in Somerset, New Jersey.

"Selecting Sophos Endpoint Security and Control just made sense as we were able to meet all of our needs and requirements with one desktop security solution," said Pramesh Naik, enterprise support manager at Kilpatrick Stockton. "Prior to Sophos, we were using a separate anti-adware solution along with a security solution to stop viruses and spyware. This approach worked, but by consolidating into one solution, we improved the efficiency of the workstation and manageability for the administrators, therefore lowering our total cost of ownership. As part of the Sophos deployment, we used the Sophos Competitor Removal Tool, which made the transition painless."

"Rather than managing multiple point products to stop different threats, more organizations are opting to use a unified single client to protect against viruses, spyware, adware, potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and hackers, as well as controlling the installation and use of unauthorized applications such as VoIP, IM, P2P and games," said Mark Hatton, president of Boston-based Sophos. "Sophos Endpoint Security and Control keeps things simple for our customers while giving them optimal security - we are pleased that Kilpatrick Stockton selected Sophos to protect its desktops."
