Sophos UTM on AWS

Sophos Partner Story

AWS Shared Security Model

Security that Scales

Sophos UTM scales automatically by adding and removing UTM Workers in tandem with AWS instances, based on traffic increases or decreases. Sophos Central Server Protection now allows Auto-Scaling AWS EC2 instances to be protected and easily managed, ensuring that any new servers launched as part of an Auto Scaling group are automatically configured with Sophos Server Protection policy. Auto Scaling helps ensure that no matter how much traffic your infrastructure handles, or how many instances you need for your application, your data will always be secure. Sophos UTM on AWS also offers High Availability (HA) to help ensure that your applications and users can always connect.

Block Intrusion Attempts

Protect critical application servers and use real time and historical reporting information to monitor intrusion attempts, privilege escalation attempts, vulnerability exploit attempts, and protocol violations. Sophos Intrusion Prevention System is updated automatically and continuously by Sophos Labs for real time pattern updates.

Secure Remote Access

Provide secure remote access for users to AWS, create site-to-site VPNs between data centers or regions, or connect physical locations to AWS with Sophos UTM. Use secure layer-2 Ethernet tunnels (Sophos RED) and/or layer-3 (IPSec) tunnels to connect VPCs across AWS regions or to connect remote offices to your AWS resources. Sophos UTM provides support for many third-party client VPN technologies.

With Sophos, you can quickly identify infected hosts on your network before they turn into a problem.

Effective Protection of Auto Scaling Server Instances

Designed to secure business critical servers without sacrificing performance, Sophos Server Protection protects Windows and Linux servers from malicious attacks using a variety of traditional and next-gen methods, including CryptoGuard anti-ransomware, Malicious Traffic Detection, and Application Whitelisting (Lockdown) capabilities. Apply and manage Server Protection policies for Auto Scaling Groups, and display valuable information about your EC2 Instances in the Sophos Central management console, which can also provide consistent security policy and visibility of servers, on-premise and in the cloud, from a single management console.

Server Protection for Auto Scaling Groups

Complete Visibility into your AWS Environment

Get the visibility you need to monitor security events, troubleshoot issues, and display information in both real time and historical reports.

When using Sophos Central, customers now have the ability to directly connect their Sophos Central Management Console to their AWS environment. This read-only connection leverages native AWS APIs to enable customers to apply and manage Server Protection policies for Auto Scaling Groups, and display valuable information about your EC2 Instances in the Sophos Central management console.

Sophos UTM provides detailed reporting on network security events such as blocked intrusion attempts destined for your instances. Daily, weekly, and monthly summary reports can be automatically delivered via email, and IPS and ATP event notifications can be sent via Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), Syslog, and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for real time alerting.
