Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
Protect against supply chain attacks that rely on supplier access to your systems via granular access controls. This cloud-delivered solution validates user identity, and device health and compliance before granting access to your resources. It authenticates requests from trusted partners, regardless of their location.
Secure Your Distributed and Diverse Retail Environments
Most retailers have multiple sites that use various platforms and business-critical and customer-facing web and mobile applications. These are vulnerable entry points for malicious attacks. But retailers have zero tolerance for cyberattacks that lead to network failures and service disruptions. Retailers need robust and reliable network infrastructure with superior application performance and segmentation to separate their guest and corporate Wi-Fi networks.
The Sophos Secure Access portfolio connects your remote and branch sites, delivers your critical cloud and SaaS applications, and lets you securely share data and information. It consists of Sophos ZTNA to secure access to your applications, Sophos SD-RED remote Ethernet devices to safely extend your network to your remote and branch sites, Sophos Wireless access points for easy and secure wireless networking, and Sophos Switch network access layer switches for secure access on the LAN. Everything is managed through Sophos Central, our all-in-one cloud-based security platform.
