Sophos today announced that Sophos Unified Threat Management (UTM) 220 received a five–star SC Recommended rating from SC Magazine. The rating is a result of comprehensive product tests and an analysis of overall product value.

SC Magazine’s detailed product review describes the Sophos UTM as a strong product for the mid-market. It also lists the UTM’s greatest strengths as a comprehensive feature set and the integration between endpoint and perimeter security into a single product. Sophos received five-stars in all six review categories, and received an overall ‘Recommended’ rating.

Over the past several months, Sophos has released several new UTM offerings to help improve IT security, including Sophos UTM 100 with BasicGaurd, and a Wireless Security Access Point 5 model, providing enterprise-level security to small businesses. Sophos also released updated versions of UTM 525 and 625 devices and introduced the RED 50 device, extending UTM to the enterprise. Additionally, Sophos was positioned as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Unified Threat Management.

“Our UTM devices and software are designed to simplify the process of securing an entire IT infrastructure, from the perimeter to the endpoint,” said Chris Kraft, vice president, product management. “The SC Magazine five-star rating reaffirms that our efforts to provide complete security for the mid-market have been successful.”

In addition to the five-star Recommended rating, Sophos UTM was a finalist in two SC Magazine award categories; Best SME solution and Best UTM.
