Take the Zero Trust Approach
Adopt a zero trust approach of trust nothing, verify everything, and get absolute control over who can access data on your network. Sophos Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) puts identity at the center of defense, constantly validating the user, the device, and policy compliance. It controls access to your data and applications based on user identity, device health, and compliance. Granular controls block lateral movement while ensuring only authorized people can access sensitive data.
Meet Compliance Reporting Requirements
Besides the need to comply with the many laws applicable to the private sector, government organizations also have their unique set of obligations, such as adherence to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. Lack of skilled IT and financial resources add up to the situation. Sophos solutions help to simplify compliance reporting and to demonstrate compliance.
Sophos Central provides flexible reporting tools that allow visualization of network activity and security over time. It offers several built-in compliance reports as well as easy tools to create custom reports.
Sophos Encryption makes it easy to verify encryption status and demonstrate compliance which is especially useful in cases of lost or stolen devices where organizations must prove that these missing devices are encrypted.
