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 the government and local authorities undertake. At the same time, government networks and endpoints are under constant threat from foreign governments, cyber attackers, and other anti-national elements. Any breach of security and data in this case can impact the entire nation.

Sophos can help government departments to ensure that the data they hold on UK citizens is adequately protected. As a UK-based supplier to the UK public sector, we help government organizations to secure and control their IT infrastructure and data. We recognize the rigorous strain on the government to remain secure and compliant while achieving mandated cost saving targets and meeting the rigorous compliance regulations required. With a long list of legislative and regulatory standards to meet, we provide 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.

needs - Sophos.

Only Sophos gives you encryption for your users’ computers, their shared folders, removable media and data stored in the cloud, both for Windows and Mac, as well as the ability to read and edit encrypted data on Android and iOS mobile devices.
