Sophos in the Government Sector

Government organizations hold enormous amount of data: citizens’ data, military intelligence data and much more. This critical data is also the basis for most smart initiatives that government and local authorities undertake. At the same time, government networks and endpoints are under constant threat from foreign governments, cyber attacks, and other anti-national elements. Any breach of security and data can impact the entire nation, province or state.

Sophos can help governments – central, state, provincial and municipal – ensure that the sensitive data they hold is adequately protected. We protect over two million civil servants and secure many high-profile government departments and agencies. We recognize the rigorous strain on government agencies to remain secure and compliant while achieving mandated cost-saving targets and meeting the rigorous compliance regulations required. We provide you with a sophisticated range of encryption, network, gateway and endpoint security suites that are as complete as they are simple to deploy, manage and live with.

Complying with Data Protection Legislation

Over the course of the past year there have been several major changes in legislation on data protection, both within the EU and within member states. The Netherlands have issued their law on reporting data leaks two years ahead of the EU. As of January 1st, this law has gone into effect. Read about what this all means in a new Sophos whitepaper.
