Choose How To Deploy

Choose the right appliance for your environment—is it hardware, software, virtual or even cloud-based?

  • Hardware

    Our appliance models fit any environment and are purpose-built to deliver high-performance. They integrate our security applications with a hardened operating system (OS) on optimized Intel-compatible server systems. See technical specifications.

  • Virtual

    Virtual appliances are certified as VMware Ready and Citrix Ready. They also run in Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM virtual environments.

  • Software

    This Sophos UTM option comes as an image you can install on your Intel-based server hardware of choice.

  • Cloud-based appliances

    Using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), you can run the appliance in the cloud. Or, you can use the Amazon VPC connector on the appliance at your office for secure and robust access to your Amazon-hosted resources. Learn more about Sophos UTM in the Amazon Cloud.
