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, province or state.

Sophos can help governments – federal/national, provincial, state and municipal – to 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 whilst achieving mandated cost saving targets and meeting the rigorous compliance regulations which are required. Sophos provides 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.
